First in a new series of comic book characters I’ve dreamed up. For years, while on the way to work or school, I’ve composed an epic narrative in my head — basically, a grand, comic-book version version of my life that looks like a cross between a pulp noir film, a Greek myth, a spaghetti western, and an Alan Moore novel. I don’t have a name for this series yet, but I’m having way too much fun not to share.
