Towards the end I think I was feelin' it OK, but half the illos I did just didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped.

NOW It Can Be Told....

Before the brutal overlords tossed us from the caves to fend for ourselves, our group cranked out 28 pages of almost ad-free dreck. My first project in the naked light and sweet aire of freedom was to draw up a cover for the set. OK, that was done pretty quick---it only took me 8 months to ink and color it.


NOW It Can Be Shown!!!
