Above: Sketches in progress by MCAD student George Folz, from a class in
experimental comics with the inspiring Zak Sally (yes, from La Mano 21).

George explains his progress: “This strip is essentially an examination of my interest
in subtlety and bombast and how they relate when juxtaposed. When I set out to do
this, I  was looking to create a comic that delved somewhat into horror, not unlike
what Warren was doing with their Creepy and Eerie books way back in the 70′s.

While the Warren books were important as an inspiration artistically and thematically,
the catalyst for this strip was King Crimson’s The Power to Believe Pt. 1: A Cappella,
a strange little musical number in which Adrian Belew sings through some sort of
modulator which clips and distorts his voice. I don’t want to say too much more in
fear that I might ruin someone’s appreciation of this but if you’d like me to go into
further detail, I’ll be happy to do so… just ask!”

Gracias, Jorge!
