I’d forgotten that I drew a double-panel strip so early on. It’s strange as well, the background is from a photo: that’s the house I grew up in, and the body of Rick is my dad’s (I just put a different head on him). In fact, Bruno’s body might be from a photo of my friend Jess….  not sure.

But the sentiment had nothing to do with my dad, it was from a letter someone wrote in to the UMass Daily Collegian in response to Bruno (which was running at the time).
