The entire concept of the "Ocryx and Joe" comic was built over three years ago on a simple concept- where do crows go for help to overcome their well-known craving to hoard shiny objects?

We decided that such help can only come from peer-to-peer support- and the first panel was created in the form of a captioned photograph of a group of crows in a run-down looking urban setting, that for all the world was appearing to attend a twelve-step program.

Oglicrux and Ocryx got their names that day, and Joe came along only later - since being stuck with a human name, he had developed an attitude problem- and a chip on his shoulder, er, wing, to boot.

Oglicrux reminds us in the last panel that addictions can be difficult to, well, lick.

You know, down at work last year, we had a crow build it's nest on the ladder to a currently-out-of-service asphalt tank.

It ended up abandoning the nest after a certain nimrod I work with decided to "take care of the problem".

In the nest we ended up finding wire, nuts, bolts, fiberglass insulation and 3 pairs of oily gloves.

That's a crow for ya.

you can tell the crows apart in the comic by the variation of beakstache and crowlick.

"Beakstaches" and "crowlicks". I like that, good work.

It really is amazing what you can find in a crow's nest (besides crows).
