A few years ago, Kevin Church and myself did a webcomic together called Lydia, which was a spin-off of his regular webcomic with artist Benjamin Birdie, The Rack. It was always meant to act as a “limited series,” in print comic terms, with the title character Lydia eventually going back to her original comic. We had a blast, and when it came time to collect the strips, we even went back and did a new 22 page story for the collection.
One of the characters from Lydia quickly became a standout favorite for both the creators and the fans, Ashley. Kevin and I wanted to eventually work together again, but we couldn’t quite get the right concept together until it dawned on us both that we should go back to Ashley’s story. I had also wanted to work with a good friend of mine who has a long résumé as a colorist for Dark Horse and Image, Rick Hiltbrunner.
So here it is, Signs & Meanings. Enjoy!
