I promised to post an extra treat before the MoCCA Festival kicks off.  Here are pages 5-8 of True Swamp Vol. 1 No. 1, originally published in 1994.  (Pages 1 through 4 are here.) Page 8 Panel 3 might be my favorite True Swamp panel I’ve ever drawn.



  1. Can you tell us what it is about pg 8 panel 3 that makes it your favorite?

    • It’s just kind of the apex of a certain small-brush inking style I had at the time (see, I completed Vol. 1 nos. 1-4 before ever publishing any of them, then when I got the grant to publish the series in 1994 I decided to totally redraw #1. So Vol. 1 no. 1 is me after inking, inking, inking every single day for over a year and some of the resulting panels are magic to me, but especially this one.)

      I’m in a very different place with regard to mark-making now which has its own strengths (I hope!)

  2. Page 7 remains one of my favorite comics pages ever.
