On the 30th episode of the podcast "Roderick on the Line" ( www.merlinmann.com/roderick/ep… ), John Roderick tells a story about visiting the red light district in Amsterdam. I was very charmed by the story, and it reminded me a lot of my youthful awkwardness with women. A friend and I conspired to find a way to illustrate this tale, and eventually it took on the shape of a comic book.

We printed, bagged and boarded 2 fancy version of the comic to present to the fellas (Roderick got his in person! fuckyeahjohnroderick.tumblr.co… ), but you folks on the internet get to download a (low res) version of the comic! I hope you enjoy it, and if you're a fan of the podcast, I hope you find the other references from other episodes that I threw in!

If you support me on Patreon ( www.patreon.com/jadegordon ), you can see my original storyboard idea, bonus art, and get a wallpaper of the street scene. If you wish to kick in a tip, I have PayPal, but also, you should see John Roderick ( www.johnroderick.com/ ) and/or Merlin Mann ( www.johnroderick.com/ ) live when you can! They put on great shows! You can also keep up with my co-conspirator and her work with The Yearbook Office (yearbookoffice.com/ )!

Disclaimers: There's a lot, lot of text. I edited down the transcription, but didn't want to cut out much, and ... I wasn't sure how to tackle it with the software I had. So. You may do better to pull up the podcast and listen along! I drew a fictionalized version of the area, so please excuse inaccuracies of the actual buildings and stores, etc.
