If you missed getting the Comics Festival comic for Free Comic Book Day, here is my 6 page Superhero Girl short. You can also get this comic as a part of the True Patriot anthology (an anthology of mostly original Canadian superhero comics by different Canadian creators) which will be for sale at TCAF next weekend. Colours for this short were done by my friend Noreen Rana.Tim gave me the idea for a “Death of Kevin” short. Aahhh I wish I had time to do more Superhero Girl comics, they’re so fun.
Maurine and Noreene never asked to be famous. The two identical twins lived their lives in sleepy Denison, Texas, sharing a strong affection for each other and for snazzy matching outfits. But thanks to the Internet and a remarkable series of snapshots, the pair has become a global phenomenon. Roach Smith blogged about them on the Sister Project: “What entranced me was the pride with which the twins showed off their matching outfits.” After reading about the pair in a story on Retro Renovation, Kevin Howard located them in an online yearbook from Denison. He discovered that Maurine Elizabeth Everett and her sister Noreene Dodd died within four months of each other around 2004, at ages 88 and 89, respectively
“We’re all staying up all night. Everyone’s in the other bathroom. We wrote BUS NOTES! Everyone’s going home. It sucks. We were gonna do Ouija board and ask Kurt Cobain if Courtney Love killed him, but considering Noreen went to bed already I don’t think it’s gonna happen.”
