The completed image, titled “You’ll Be Safe Here,” reflects what heroic fiction can provide to troubled readers. Most of the comic is in muted two colors, but for this image Trippe bursts out in full, bright coloring, as the last seconds of the video shows.
The video was created by Scott Fogg, writer of a comic-in-progress called Phileas Reid Knows We Are Not Alone. The artist is Marc Thomas. Trippe is slated to do the coloring and Vito Delsante the lettering. There’s a Kickstarter campaign for the book going on now.
