Alive's new comic series, featuring six-week runs by local cartoonists. The first installment feature Max Ink.

Editor's note: Nix Comics' Ken Eppstein curates and edits this weekly feature. To reach out to Ken to be included in future installments of Sketch in the City, you can email him at ken@nixcomics.com or hit up his Twitter @nixcomics.

Max Ink's cartoons are often inspired by parallel art forms, particularly those that combine illustration with written narrative.

T-shirts are a great example because they communicate a quick story to every passerby.(Although, Blink and Sam learn in this week's strip that some stories are easier to understand than others!)

Check out Max's stories atmaxinkcomix.com.
