My favorite Dylan Williams comicPosted: September 15, 2011 Filed under: News 8 Comments
Dylan drew this comic for WINDY CORNER #2, which I edited. I loved Dylan’s cartooning and, as Dylan did with Sparkplug, used WINDY CORNER as a place to get artists I loved to make work that they otherwise might not.
This is a special comic from Dylan, about his relationship with Alex Toth. I have a lot to say about it, but I’ll let the comic do the talking today. Especially hard to read is when Dylan mentions finding out he has leukemia in this comic—this is a 5 year old comic, which gives you some indication how long and hard Dylan was fighting all this.
Thanks for posting this, it’s really good to see it again.
Why is there an Intel commercial about dancing penguins at the end of it, though?
Thank you for sharing that. I remember reading those old old Adventure digests. There were a few of them that had Toth stories. The only reason I ever saw them was because they were sold in the hospital gift shop when my grandfather was ill.
[…] weekend. I really liked Dylan and the work that he published and promoted with Sparkplug comics. He did a really great strip about Alex Toth for Austin English’s Windy Corner. I highly suggest reading that. It feel especially poignant right […]
Thank you for posting this, and for publishing it in the first place.
What they said. Thank you … this was a real pleasure and comfort to read.
That is also *my* favorite Dylan Williams comic. Thanks for posting it!
Re-reading this in 2020. Thanks for making it available here.
