Categorized in:

I’m pleased to announce my next comic:?Labor and Love.

labor & love cover

Labor and Love is a collection of 4 comics adapting classic folk ballads. I wrote all 4 stories and Neal Von Flue, a man who likes a good comic and a good folk song, drew them.

The comic contains adaptations of the songs:

  • The Wind and The Rain
  • The Wreck of the Old 97
  • The Mermaid
  • Henry Lee.

Sharp-eyed readers will realize that Neal and I did the adaptation of The Wind and The Rain here at Split Lip a few years back. This version is different, though: it’s in full color. In fact, all 4 stories are in full color. And while The Wind and The Rain and Henry Lee have horror elements, the other comics aren’t horror.

Labor and Love will debut at SPX, Sept. 10-11, in Bethesda, MD. After SPX, you’ll be able to buy it via mail order and maybe a distributor or two (we’ll see about that one).

The details:

  • 44 pages
  • full color
  • cardstock cover
  • price: $7.

For more info, check out (under construction now, but it’ll be up and running soon).
