The Tyranny of Pants is a weekly webcomic Charlie Capp has been making since 2012. Updating (usually) on Wednesday, it’s loosely autobiographical, mostly humorous, and sometimes philosophical. Spiders seem to be a common subject.

About Charlie

Charlie Capp is an artist currently based in Seattle, WA. These days he works mostly in the worlds of comics and illustration, but perhaps you know of him as a photographer too! Born in Montana, he spent the first thirty years of his life living near the mountains, but after he and his wife Lorie got married, they decided to hit the road and explore the wider world for a spell. Examples of his other work can be seen at

Charlie got a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell Biology & Neuroscience back in 2005, and while he can still remember the difference between meiosis and mitosis, almost none of that calculus he had to learn has stuck with him.

Charlie can be contacted through a variety of means. E-mail seems to be the most common method, but you could also go through social media like Facebook and Twitter too. Oh, since it comes up from time to time: Charlie is not a seventy-year old Christian preacher (at least not until after 2050); that’s a different guy.
