Apparition



When I was back in high school, in 1990, I created a supernatural hero that I called "Apparition". Inspired largely by the still hot "Batman" film, I wanted my OWN dark crime fighter in a cape and came up with (what I THOUGHT was. lol) a super original origin twist. MY hero would become a crime fighter to avenge the death of... HIMSELF! I would later find out that a few characters have already done this, but it did not deter me. I drew 43 issues (badly) of this guy with my friend, Earl Holloway, back in high school.

After my year at the Kubert school, I decided to reboot my high school hero with a slightly revised backstory and more ghostly powers as a series of 6 fanzines I self published between 1994 and 1996.

So now that the Wellkeeper is nearly complete and i'm busy on Hashtag Comics' CARPE NOCTEM as the co-writer and artist, I've decided that I'm not busy enough and will be remastering those 6 issues to re-publish this coming year. I'll fix all the typos and hopefully the horrible scripting I did, but represent this hero of mine to a whole new generation of readers! Hope to see you then!
