Mike Hawthorne is Raising Crazy

One of my favorite things on Twitter was reading artist, Mike Hawthorne's updates about his 4 year old, or 4YO. Eventually, the tweets got their own feed, and now, Mike's turned it into a regular webcomic. Now, the boy is a 5YO, but Hawthorne is still raising crazy.

As a fairly new parent, I'm both charmed and terrified, mostly that, as I understand it, the dialog is all real. Check out these samples, and make sure to visit regularly.


  1. This kid is going to either be a serial killer or a stand-up comedian.  I can’t tell which.

  3. Josh, thanks for highlighting this!  Appreciate it!

  4. Oh man, that’s awesome. I love his twitter feed.

  5. Wow I read this every time its on

  6. This is great. Adding it to my list. Thanks Josh. 

  7. Oh man Raising Crazy is the BEST thing on twitter and I’m so glad Mike finally got the web comic up. I LOVE this!

  8. I think anybody with a 4 to 5 year old will think this is the truest and funniest comic ever.  I think that just about all of those comics have happened to me.

  9. Brilliant.

  10. These are funny. Reminds me so what of the Dennis the Menace, and Calvin and Hobbes stuff.
