Self published in Franfurt, Germany by Von Phantasi Studios in 2000. Created by Meri Deth Koffin and J.K.Woodward
It started with a surrealist oil painting series I had done for gallery viewing under the nom de plume, VonPhantasi(yeah, I know, stupid name). Then M(Meri Deth Koffin) wrote some first person prose interpreting those paintings. then we got together over an antipasto and pitcher of beer to discuss the "real stories" that could run parallel and still relate to both the prose and painted images which would now serve as hallucinations generated by the person speaking the prose. The idea being that when tied together it would give the reader insight into the schizophrenic mind.
All people instinctively seek patterns in random events and reason in chaos. The insane are just more artful at it. Note the tone of his hallucinations as the train rolls in releasing the crowds on page 6,(above) compared to the tone on page 7,(below) it's all tied together in this fashion throughout the book.
In the end though, this was a 22 page story about a murder. It's more like an exercise in sequential storytelling than it was a comic book or graphic novel.
I think these pages are a good and full use of the comic medium and I stand by it, but it needs more.
I'm reworking it to include a full story beyond just the murder(peripheral characters, and investigation, etc), so expect to see more of this in the future.
