About the author:
Benjamin McCormick (aka Tovias) has wanted to be a cartoonist since forever. No seriously, since forever. There are these stone tablets in a cave that have some kind of cuneiform writing on them that mention his wanting to be a cartoonist (they also mention that an art class wouldn't hurt). While growing up a poor child in rural Alabama, he knew he was destined for greatness. Later it was explained to him that there had been a clerical error and it was actually the kid living two farms down who was destined for greatness and Tovias was only promised mid-level mediocrity, but he chose to embrace that mediocrity with a passion.

Inspired by the works of George Herriman and Charles M. Schulz at an early age, he started cartooning in the fourth grade. Decades later, while serving in the United States Navy as a Data Systems Technician, Tovias discovered the world of online comics. In August of 2003 he started posting comics online and made every rookie mistake possible. After six years of attempted comic starts, he left his job as a Systems Engineer for a defense contractor to work on the comic full-time.

Tovias currently lives in Southeastern Virginia in studio full of comic books and Green Lantern action figures ("THEY'RE NOT DOLLS!") where he writes and draws Reality Amuck into the wee hours of the night.

It's Supposed to be America

Reality Amuck Collection: Volume One

Authored by Benjamin T. McCormick

It has been said one should never talk about politics, religion or sex in polite society, but no one has ever called the internet polite. Reality Amuck talks about these things and more; pop Culture, movies, being a grown up geek and more are discussed from the points of view of a group of friends from different ends of a generation.

"It's Supposed to be America!" collects the first 150 Reality Amuck comics with cartoonist's commentary into 136 pages of awesome. Also included are 30 pages of special features including never before published character sketches and the rarely seen "Random Acts of ADP" and "Westerwald Place" comics that preceded "Reality Amuck" online.
