We all have to start somewhere

My buddy, Keith Miller, the writer of Triboro tales have a long sordid history. We met at the High School of Art and Design, we would later be roomates and now he's the Godfather to my daughter, Catherine.
now here's the thing you need to understand. When we were in High school, just like every other wanna be cartoonist we formed full blown "companies" within the school. I did tons of tons of comics back then but there are very few existing pecies of art from those days. i present one of the few.
The actual art was providedd by the inker Roger Pickering, another old friend.
Can you tell I was a Kirby fan back them? and John Byrne was my God at 14 years old?
bot as they say from little acorns mighty oaks grow.
