About the strip

Bassist Wanted is a comic strip about music that appears in weekly newspapers. It’s been running since 2004.

The characters

The cartoonist (me)

My name is Porter Mason, and I write and draw and ink and scan and web design all of this all by myself. No one helps me do anything because they are all jerks, and anyway I have a Charles Schulz Complex.

I also help non-profits and do inprov and write and stuff. You can learn more about me if you like.
