Stuart Immonen 1988: Playground #2
So this took me by surprise. More than it should have, I guess, because I was familiar with the pared-down styles Immonen uses when collaborating with Kathryn Immonen, née Kuder on their creator-owned work. But still…!
Playground was kind of a 3-issue “punk murder mystery,” the duo created in 1988 under their One-Horse Leadworks DIY publishing banner. It was their first foray into the comic book world alongside Headcheese, an anthology showcase of Toronto-area artists.
Seeing this reminds me of the perennial question newcomers like to ask the pros: “How do they get started in the world of big-time comics?”
This is how: You start by doing —your future is what you make it.
