Today will be the last Desert Fathers comic for a while. I have many more in various phases of completion, but they are pretty labor intensive, so this is the last one for now.
I’ve always thought that illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages and comics were distant cousins. Both combine typography and images to convey stories.
I love looking through books about illuminated manuscripts and found an in illustration recently in a book from the Museum of the Bible* that I used as inspiration for the demon.
Next week, I’ll be back to posting My Life in Records stories again for a few months.
See you bright and early tomorrow for new comic book day
*The museum has seen its share of controversies, such as forgeries of Dead Sea Scrolls and looted artifacts from Iraq, but the book seemed to be just a guidebook of European Illuminated Manuscripts.
