Wide Empire of Sports!
Okay, now, to finally get down to one of the reasons I started this blog in the first place. I spent most of last year working on a series of comics for McGraw-Hill's new series of textbooks with "graphic novel" supplements. No one over the age of seventeen is likely to ever see these books, and I thought a blog would be a appropriate showcase for them. I've held off posting them for this long, however, so that McGraw-Hill would have a chance to get them into print before I put them out in some other form. It's been over a year since I did the first series of them, so I think protocol has been duly satisfied.
One of the reasons I'm eager to show these stories is that I'm extremely curious what some of the other cartoonists did for this project (there were about twenty-five of us), and I'm hoping they'll follow my example. You hear me, Rob? James? Ellen? Get them scanners humming!
