Weekly Comic Idea about Recent Graduates

As we all know, times have been very tough for recent graduates who face a workforce that doesn't have a place for them, while saddled up with loads of debt that they can't possibly hope to pay off. Where people have been forced to move back with their parents, held off kids and marriage, and taken jobs that are well below their education level just to make minimum payments. Most of these people who are having to suffer through this feel like they have no voice to actually communicate their pleas to a great audience. Well...I want to try to communicate those voices.

Lately I've been tossing this idea around in my head and with a few friends, about doing a weekly small one page comic about people who have recently left university (through graduation or for other reasons.) Just something to tell others who they are, where they are from, and where their student debt has prevented them from going. I want to hear real stories, real events, from real people anywhere in the world. The idea is pretty small and I'm still contemplating how I want to work it out so that's why I'm posting today here in the blog. If you think you have a worthwhile story (or even if you don't but still want it told) please contact me here on my blog or email through my contact page. I want to make this a larger collaboration of people to bring awareness to a growing problem in our generation.
