Today is Brandon Graham’s birthday.
When I was just getting started on Other Sleep last year, and had posted the first chapter, maybe the second as well, I sent him an email, telling him what a fan I am, how much his work on King City means to me, and how I was working on my own first graphic novel and stuff.
When he emailed me back, he sent me these pages he was working on coloring at the time. Two pages from his solo issue of Prophet, and a handful of pages from Multiple Warheads.
I grinned hard when I got copies of these comics and saw the finished pages. It meant a lot to me, that he took the time to email me back and was kind enough to include these pages. It still does. He’s an incredible artist and the comics industry is all the better for his work. A major inspiration.
Happy birthday, Brandon, keep on making awesome work and inspiring us younger artists.
