Across This Antheap

11" x 17", ink (and digital) on paper (mounted), 2007/14

This piece was originally presented as an eight-page "story" in a comic book I made in 2007. Although I only ever finished one issue, I had material (sketches, story ideas, etc.) for three more. In that issue this was called "The Boys Wanna Fight" (after a song by Garbage) but after rearranging the pages to become panels, I borrowed a title from an XTC song instead. Since I was making the same overall point with my World War One painting project, I felt it appropriate to include it in this rearranged fashion, focusing on the WWI page.

The cover of the one and only completed issue.
