The Origin of Ralph Snart



Just finished pencils and lettering for RSA #11 -- the first part of a trilogy about the origin of The Snart. I also wrote an article on some of the influences that helped create RSA way back when.

This starts the beginning of the new format -- horizontal so an entire page can be seen on a desktop monitor. Part two is about halfway written.

If you want a missive about how Snart changed your life to appear in the next Rubber Room Gossip, now's the time to email them to me. I never grow tired of reading about how you found your first issue of RSA on a rack in a 7-Eleven and how your teachers beat you when they discovered you reading it in class and how your mom later threw all your Ralph Snarts in the garbage after you went to college and how your dad still won't speak to you because once you said Gangway, Fathead! to him. Ah, memories.

I should be uploading a new inking video on youturd relatively soon.

RSA tees available here (scroll to the bottom). Only two sizes left and limited quantities of each. Sorry, no more contests to win a free one (you cheap bastards).
