Yes 7th grade was my start in comics too. I did a slasher comic with figures from the stuff we learned at school, mixing historical figures with Zombies and Vampires….. hey I wish I had a copyright on the idea, looking at recent films
Cat-in-a-Box took a hiatus due to a project contract gone south. I ended up taking a full-time job, but after a year of that I was feeling it wasn’t for me. So technically I’m back on Cat-in-a-Box now, but really I’m on take-a-few-months-to-unwind-and-reflect.
