PLEASE OPEN & VIEW: Kim Perez Comic Story (PDF File)
I’ve spent the better part of a decade dealing with the death of my sister, Kim. She’s been the focus of several previous entries (Unexpected Wisdom #1: Sister and Kim’s Cassette Tape), and I sometimes fear of becoming too morbid, or unseemly, with exposing this internal struggle for public consumption.
Years ago, I attempted to create a graphic (“comic book”) story that dealt head-on with my struggle to move on. Though it was a noble effort, at the time, it definitely wasn’t a pleasant experience. It was quite painful, to be honest. I only was able to work on nine pages, before I decided to cut bait. I guess that was the real purpose of the story: I needed to cut bait. I needed a way to move on. Working on the story was a major step in that direction.
Cut to the present day: I felt comfortable enough to complete the nine pages to a reasonably presentable state. I think it’s ready to share.
