Photo reblogged from Illiterate Rainbow, S. Steven Struble with 143 notes

Ben and I have been comics readers since childhood, and although we  didn’t know each other then, our taste in comics seemed to follow a  similar trajectory. Our mutual love of comics began, as many do, with  Jim Lee’s run in Marvel’s X-Men. Following that, our paths led us to  Image Comics, Ben with Rob Liefeld’s Bloodstrike, and I with Jim Lee and  Brandon Choi’s WildC.A.T.s.  Arizona resident Todd McFarlane’s Spawn  was a revelation to me, and I managed to hold on to the first issue  until the winter of 1995, when I sold the issue to a classmate named  Sterling for 12 dollars. Through Spawn I discovered Neil Gaiman’s  Sandman and through Sandman I discovered DC’s Vertigo imprint, which  traded superheroes for paranormal thrillers like The Books of Magic,  Hellblazer, and Preacher (a favorite of Ben Gallaty’s). These books  along with Nate Powell’s Swallow Me Whole, and the works of Jim Mahfood  and Will Eisner ushered me into adulthood and reinforced in me the  belief that comic books are a diverse and beautiful art form. The comics of S. Steven Struble continue a rich tradition of  personal narrative that was pioneered for comics by the likes of Eisner,  Pekar, and many others. The beauty of these “everyday, slice-of-life”  comics is unique perspective offered by every writer . The emotions  shared in these comics are immeasurably human and instantly  recognizable, and no one does it better these days than S. Steven  Struble’s Little Depressed Boy. It is an honor that our music is a part  of this writer’s life, we are very excited to be included in this  beautiful piece of art.
