Here is a four page autobiographical story that I wrote & drew about the death of my father a couple years ago.
It was published in issue #4 of DREAM LOGIC. Published by Marvel Comics. Icon imprint that we created for our creator-owned books.
Also included here are the initial layouts for the story I did about my father. And learning of his death.
I had the story written out more or less. And I was percolating on how to tell the story visually and lay it out. I was with my friend Larry grocery shopping at the Publix in Atlanta walking the aisles with a cart thinking of the sequence. Some ideas started to come so I walked to the coffee shop close by, had a coffee and sat down and drew these pages out in scribbles like ths. Then returned to the Publix just as Larry had finished the grocery shopping.
Sometimes, in the trenches of making comics, I forget why I do this. So, here’s a collection of individual issues I got when I was a kid, chosen from random joyful memory, that TOTALLY INSPIRED my love for this stuff.
