Recently Symbolia released their “True Crime” issue, featuring my comic, “What Is a Juggalo?” The story focuses on the Insane Clown Posse’s legal battle with the FBI over the official classification of ICP fans as gang members. It was a really fun project to work on, and I thought I’d show you guys a bit of my process. Here’s a GIF that shows each stage of a page’s creation, from thumbnails to finished, colored and lettered art:
I was pretty happy with how that page turned out. It features Mars prominently, I rapper with whom I had the pleasure of speaking as part of my research for this project. I was happy to see links to Symbolia’s new issue on a few Juggalo community sites last week, including Juggalo News a site owned by Mars’ entertainment company.
This issue also features stories about veterans facing the consequences of combat, a personal memoir about a checkered past, and a cold case that took decades to crack. If you haven’t already, you can download the newest issue of Symbolia using these links:
