Spotlight: “Jet Lag” by Morgen Eljot


As a Californian living sporadically in Finland I am constantly impressed, bemused, and perplexed by the similarities and dissimilarities between San Francisco and Helsinki. Every few months I like to consolidate my experiences into the form of a comic, semi-autobiographical and mostly true.

His comics and stories have appeared in publications such as ZYZZYVA, Hobart, JUKED, Eclectica, the San Francisco Examiner, Palooka, The T.J.Eckleburg Review, The Rumpus, and others.
