24 Hour Comic Book Day 2015

Another 24 Hour Comic Book Day has come and gone. This year I made a Tom Stoppard – inspired comic about Star Trek TOS from the perspective of the Redshirts. I didn’t like that I didn’t create my own original world for this one, but I did like telling the Redshirts’ story.

“Ensigns Massey and O’Hara are Dead”

And, similarly to how Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead works so well precisely because everybody knows Hamlet and is familiar with all the tropes, I didn’t have to establish the Star Trek tropes because it is assumed that everybody already knows them.

I also liked drawing the Redshirts as super huge beefy guys, because they do work the security detail after all!
