I think one of the hardest things about being a child whose a father who was in and out of prison was the judgment of other adults. Not only did people go on and on with simplistic messages about how people end up in prison, they also told us to our faces that our family problems, our troubles in school and more were all the result of “a culture of failure” and (most of) our parents being unmarried. It was hard enough being taught to build a relationship with my father over prison visits and letters, but the way we were taught to view our families and ourselves because of generational incarceration was dangerous.

Work in progress.  A new short story, with art by Angela Allen.  She’s killing it in these pages.  Love the Captain lurching out of that final panel.

The Hobgoblin by Ron Frenz

I am not a Ron Frenz fan.  But there are some things the man does that just look great and take me back to my childhood.  This would be one of those things.
