"Fogtown" published - here's the splash page

CELEBRATING THE RELEASE OF THE GRAPHIC NOVEL "FOGTOWN" PUBLISHED BY VERTIGO/DC -- STORY BY ANDERSEN GABRYCH, ART BY YOURS TRULY!


This is the “splash” or opening page to the graphic novel, which takes place in 1953, mostly in the
North Beach area of San Francisco, known by its denizens as “Fogtown”, hence the title. It was the concept of the writer, Andersen Gabrych, that the city would be as much a character as any
of the people in it.

This was my second pass at the splash page. My editor, Bob Schreck, rejected my first attempt as too crude. I tasked my new assistant, Lee-Roy Stephen Lahey, with enlarging the image from the initial 6”x 9” to 9” x 14” and adding more detail, like such as the bay windows. So this page is very much a
collaboration between Bob, Lee-Roy and myself.

Images are from the graphic novel Fogtown copyright 2010 by Andersen Gabrych and Brad Rader. Fogtown is available from Amazon.
