About the comic series

Linguist Gone Foreign is a comic series about the glory and the horrors of life abroad: a graphic journey through language phenomena, culture clashes and the rigors of everyday life.

It began as a humorous graphic diary to keep my family and friends up-to-date on my happenstances across the continent, but in a short time and for reasons that still escape my mind, a bunch of people all over the Internet had joined the melee.
