Over the weekend, we learned about the death of legendary cartoonist Bernie Wrightson. There’s nothing I can add to the beautiful remembrances shared online by his many friends and collaborators. I encourage you to spend some time with his work this week. It’s as lush and intricate as any cartoon art ever made. As a nod to his work, I scrapped the art for the first panel and – as our hero is in a tavern – I added three of Mr. Wrightson’s famous characters raising a pint.
This coming weekend, I’ll be a guest of the South Carolina Comicon. If you’re in the Greenville, South Carolina area this weekend, come by and say, “Hail, and Well Met.”
Is the color in the strip becoming too saturated? What do you think?
This is episode 29 of The Middle Age. You can read the story from the beginning here.
