Heartache Saloon, Chapter One

(Click to make legible)

This is a scan of a copy of the first installment of Heartache Saloon, a comic I started (and ended) in 1990 when I was living in France. A couple of midwestern alt weeklies and music papers ran it for free (in some cases without even notifying me, having gotten it handed to them samzdat style by a third party). I cringe looking at some elements--particularly the lettering--but mostly it makes me wish I'd kept it up and learned to draw better. Dig the crayzeee perspective in that last panel!

The portrait of Poe is pretty good, though.
