About Bad Gateway
Perpetually intoxicated, lovable degenerates Megg and Mogg have drifted through a consequence-free life full of raucous antics. But their heavy drug use, once a gateway to adventure, has begun to take a grim psychological toll. As her unstable lifestyle finally catches up to her, Megg turns to her past to uncover the roots of the self-destructive habits that have led her down this dark path. Bad Gateway is the magnum opus that Simon Hanselmann's previous work has been building towards, careening into new psychological depths.

He currently lives in Seattle with his wife and a rotating cast of small animals.

The characters are imbued with far more pathos and depth than seems plausible given the stock comic premise -- drugged-out, slacker roommates. One More Year continues to give substance to the characters and personalities of its protagonists in ways that never fail to surprise, delight, and horrify.
Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with Werewolf Jones.
Megg the witch, Mogg the cat, their friend Owl, and Werewolf Jones struggle unsuccessfully with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other. It (TM)s a laff riot Megg and Mogg decide to take a trip to Amsterdam for some quality couple time, although the trip gets off to a rocky start when they forget their antidepressants.
