Got an email saying that we’re allowed to talk about DISTRICT COMICS which is coming in September (or so I’ve heard) from Fulcrum Publishing.
Matt Dembicki, he of the Eisner nominated TRICKSTER anthology, has put together another fantastic lineup of creators for a book detailing some of Washington DC’s more awesome (and more obscure) history. (I don’t have a list of everyone in the book, but the names that I have heard are incredible.)
My tale, written with Art Haupt and colored by Wendi Strang-Frost, is about the 1950 assassination attempt on Harry Truman. I enjoyed working on this story quite a lot, and some of it is the best stuff I’ve ever drawn (it nearly killed me, to be honest) but the thing that is best about this short story is that I had no idea that there was an attempt on Truman’s life. I can only assume that a bunch of you are in the same boat, so it is extremely satisfying to be able to bring a small part of forgotten history to life.
Anyway, I’m going to start posting some process pieces.
Above are the thumbnails for pages 1 and 2 of TRUMAN from the upcoming DISTRICT COMICS anthology. A rather goofy start, but there you go.
