All aboard: Two webcomics for the road

Two diary webcomics launched recently, both of them telling the story of the creator’s journey, but that’s where the similarity ends. Fried Chicken and Sushi is Khalid Birdsong’s lighthearted, partially fictionalized account of his time as an English-language teacher in Japan. Birdsong has a dynamic, cartoony style and a good-hearted sense of humor—he’s quick to laugh at himself, and he’s never mean. Michael Jonathan is Jewish is longer, more detailed, and more serious, but fascinating in its own way; it’s the story of Jonathan’s “birthright trip” to Israel. While Birdsong made it all the way to Tokyo in a handful of strips, Jonathan has set a more leisurely pace, with so many side trips that he has yet to make it onto the plane to Israel. It’s a more introspective comic, as befits the tale of a spiritual journey. Both are still in the early days, so this is a good time to jump on board and start reading. (Thanks to Lauren Davis for pointing me to Michael Jonathan is Jewish.)
