disappearing-town

coloring a comic from earlier this year and bringing to bear some new methodology means it’s in part, a complete redraw. it will be up for sale digitally sometime this summer (sooner, than later)

Disappearing Town production is also happening, but much slower because it’s all mine and I want it to not be terrible in very specific ways.

The #mypubliclandsroadtrip Takes a Historic Look at Headwaters Forest Reserve in California - aka Falk “Ghost Town” 

Deep in the redwoods of northern California hides the ghost town of Falk. Once a busy mill town of four-hundred lumber workers and their families, Falk now haunts in the Headwaters Forest Reserve, a part of the BLM’s National Conservation Lands. 

The 7,400 acre reserve is located 6 miles southeast of Eureka, California. It was set aside protect and preserve the ecological and wildlife values in the area. Only remnants remain from the historic mill town of Falk, but rangers lead interpretive hikes and story reenactments.

As women keep washing up dead, Ohio town fears a serial killer is on the loose
In a Rust Belt city corroded by drugs, women keep disappearing. And dying.

For years, Chillicothe, Ohio, was known as just another notch on the Rust Belt, afflicted by the same old problems of drugs, poverty and unemployment. If the town ever made national news, it was because a presidential candidate stopped by vowing to fix things, only for those promises to evaporate after Election Day.

But in the past couple of months, Chillicothe has crept back into headlines for something other than a stump speech. Something much darker. Something evil.

Chillicothe is no longer just another Rust Belt town. Now it’s the place where women go missing and wash up dead.

In little over a year, at least six women have disappeared from the town of only 21,000. Four of their bodies have been found, almost all of them dumped in creeks or streams flowing away from the town.

But in the past couple of months, Chillicothe has crept back into headlines for something other than a stump speech. Something much darker. Something evil.

Chillicothe is no longer just another Rust Belt town. Now it’s the place where women go missing and wash up dead.

In little over a year, at least six women have disappeared from the town of only 21,000. Four of their bodies have been found, almost all of them dumped in creeks or streams flowing away from the town.

The women have similar stories. Most of them were hooked on drugs, and many moonlighted as prostitutes to fund their addictions, police say. Some of them even knew one another.

The similarities between the victims and the crime scenes have Chillicothe terrified that a serial killer is on the loose. Local police, several county sheriffs’ offices and state investigators have banded together to solve the spiraling murder mystery.

Even FBI analysts are assisting with the investigation, busy compiling a profile of a possible serial killer.

“I don’t want to come out and say ‘yes, we have a serial killer,’ but it’s a small community that we live in … and the number of females who have come up missing, and then the bodies that we’ve found, that’s quite a bit for our community,” Staff Lt. Mike Preston of the Ross County Sheriff’s Department told The Washington Post.

Disappear from your home town
Go and find the people that you know
Show them all of your good parts
Leave town when the bad ones start to show
