Curious Calgary #2: Abandoned Buildings

These unfinished stories are mysterious.

The Sprawl used to post comics on Instagram. But since Meta has blocked Canadian news on Facebook and Instagram in response to Bill C-18, we’ve had to get creative, playing with not just digital formats, but print ones too. Curious Calgary is a new mini-comics series by Sam Hester that is designed to be printed out at home—and passed around by hand as a zine! The entire comic fits onto a single page of 8 ½ by 11 paper. All you need is a printer.

Download this comic, print it at home and follow these instructions for how to fold and cut it. A how-to video is at the bottom of this page.

Sam Hester is a Calgary-based graphic recorder and longtime indie comics creator.

Fold, then cut—then distribute!
