Tyler Page (Nothing Better, Stylish Vittles) has a new webcomic called Raised on Ritalin – A Medicated Memoir and just a few panels will give you an idea of what it’s about.

ROR is obviously important to you. Lenny Bruce’s last days on stage were important to him, too. In the latter’s case, what was personally important got him nowhere; he lost his audience. I fear that, except for a minor audience for whom ADD and its therapies are a sticking point in life, you’re headed down that unfortunate path.
Stick with “Nothing Better” and similar comedy-dramas as your bread-and-butter products. You’re good at them and they attract audiences. ROR may bring you plaudits from the similarly-victimized, but you’ll be lost to the general reader who really likes your writing.
And that would be a shame.
