Thrilled to tell everyone that I have a comic featured in Cleveland Scene Magazine‘s 9th annual comics issue, edited by Sequoia Bostick and Amalia DeGirolamo of Vagabond Comics; I cannot thank them enough for this opportunity. (Amalia created the tremendous artwork for the cover, seen in the image below.)
The theme for the issue is “Alternate Realities” — which seems sadly apt in light of recent events. My piece is, I think, the longest and most challenging comic I’ve ever done — and certainly the most personal and emotional.
There’s a lot I could say about the last twelve months, but for the moment, I’ll let my comic tell the story.
I’ll just briefly add that I was aided in the making of this comic by ArchieCat, who loves to check out whatever I’m drawing, in this case — if you look closely — a cartoon Archie reacting angrily to a coronavirus invasion.
You can read the entire issue at the link above, and also via Issuu.
Physical copies of Scene are also available for free at a variety of places around northeast Ohio.
I hope you enjoy it.
