Starting today, the Pittsburgh City Paper is publishing a weekly comic called “Public Notices.” I’m the goofball responsible for it. The format will be familiar to fans of “Assemble Daily News.” It’s a single panel comic illustrating interesting moments from real life. But while “Assemble Daily News” focused on just a few neighborhoods in the East End, the coverage area for “Public Notices” will include the entirety of Pittsburgh.
To encourage everyone to pick up numerous print copies of City Paper, I’m going to wait to post the comics on this site until they’ve been in print for a few days. In the interim, I may post outtakes and other observations collected during my reporting ventures.
If you’re discovering The Ongoing History of Pittsburgh through the comic and trying to figure out what exactly is going on here, I suggest starting with this introduction.
