This is the first installment of your work that I have read and I love it. It’s the kind of NY that I remember as a kid in the seventies.
I like this story. It has a real oral history flavor to its narrative.
The observational point of view gives as much as what is factual along with a sense of wonder, followed by the matter of fact bland acceptance.
The piecing together narrative of Mr. James life was an interesting side story arc.
this one knocked me out! love the bumbleneufelds
I like these kind of narrative loops, where time is measured in peoples lives.
I guess that means I’m getting old or something, but it’s fun to see the shapes and the symmetry of things.
I like this story, Joshs’ art is always very engaging and the story quietly pulls you in. I wish it were longer.
I always love your stories and this one made me very nostalgic.
Thanks so much
The older neighbor you never really knew that well cause you were a kid and didn’t think outside your little world. I had a couple of those.
One day an ambulance come to there house and you never see them again.
I had to let this one sink in for a few days. I slowly came to understand it more and more.

Wait — what — that’s it?! — NO! More! MORE! MORE!!!
Pure joy. Beautiful crescendo with the bee-family shot. Wish I knew what made that honey taste dense and smoky, though.
It took me a few readings to really get how much story is going on here. It gets better each time. Fantastic!
Love those colors, too.
i realized today that every time a new ndn story posts i almost always end up rereading “the beekeeper”.
i knew from it’s initial posting how much i enjoyed the story, but it’s taken me till now to really appreciate how layered this story really is. terrific collaboration…
beautiful, sweet (har har) story, lots of heart. and the people-bees - so cute.

I do not know. Thank you for your love.
I was just searching for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the Google’s issue that does not rank this kind of informative web sites closer to the top. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.
