September 11, 2001, Jeff and Vijaya had just arrived in Norway for a comics festival in Bergen. Illustrating the experience of what it was like to be far from home that day, these original art pieces were donated to the “9-11: Emergency Relief” graphic novel which was a fundraiser for the American Red Cross.
CXC will happen on a variety of platforms. Some of our events (like the Talk & Teach workshops) will be on Zoom Webinars and require registration. But almost everything will be streamed on our Facebook, YouTube, & Twitch. Details: http://cartooncrossroadscolumbus.org/schedule

Jeff’s inspiration for RASL? Science fiction and noir. RASL came out of my love for these genres. Some of my favorite authors are Arthur C. Clarke, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. I also watch a lot of noir film classics like The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep.
Thank you to The Kansas City Public Library for this nice review of the BONE saga!
