Zip’s Last Day

(R; Crime/Horror) A corrupt FBI agent arrives in Boston to solve what looks like a murder mystery. As he tracks down clues, the case evolves into something much more bizarre. Read the story overview for more behind-the-scenes details.

Splitting the two scenes on a single page is more convincing here than on page three. The solid blacks are my old-school attempt at page design/unification. It certainly makes my dense work a lot easier to read!

John Romita practically drew the bottom scene without knowing it. He brought subtlety to the art of using weather, both as a character and time-tracking element. I first noticed this in his 1977 Spider-Man newspaper strip.
