love in a time of alternate history

A glimpse inside my latest project, a minicomic flip book that both reprints my very first story and a later, extended canon version, and acts as sort of a meditation on the relationship between the two stories and Kekionga today, and on the minicomic itself.

Flip books are technically difficult to make and you always end up with a couple of stray pages where the two pieces don’t quite match up.  Spare pages mean pinups, and this book includes this romantic interlude between Jack and Iowa, and my favorite corny comic-bool line from the second story.  In the universe of the story itself Jack says it, and in this universe it’s Iowa, but it doesn’t really matter.  (Josef is the same in any universe– always right there when the action is happening, even if he is not paying attention.)

The font is P22 Kane, a distressed newspaper Roman that really seems to work in combination with hand lettered pages.
