Some of you already know the ridiculously talented Kat McNally as the artistic genius behind my Santa Noir holiday cards. But, know her or not, today you are in for a treat.
A little ways back, she e-mailed to ask if she could turn one of the stories in Old School into one of these graphic novel type dealios all the cool kids like so much, some kind of project at her fancy pants art school, MICA, from whence she now has graduated with a butt-ton of well-deserved honors. Cute, I thought. She wants to make a comic book. Today, she gave me a little present – all five panels framed up to hang in my office. And this comic thing? This ain’t Archie.
The story she picked is Exit Interview, a touching tale of paternal devotion I whipped up a while back for a Do Some Damage flash fiction thing. You can read that here, if you like. Although if you really want to do me a solid, you can buy the whole damn book. Following is Ms. Mac’s version, in all its gory. Er, eh, glory
Pretty hot shit, no? If you liked it, drop a comment, give Ms. Mac some love. Maybe she’ll do it again. ‘Course she’s out of school now, been hired on to be art director at some hot-shot outfit. No more homework. So I’ll probably have to pay her next time.
Shit. Somebody this good is going to be expensive.
