Kyle Baker juvenilia


Wednesday, March 18, 2009

I found this Kyle Baker comic in the “Ten for a Dollar” box at my secret spot here in Pittsburgh. I had never seen it before. From October 1985. Published by Lodestone. Straight outta Brooklyn, NY. Sort of a War comic, it made me laugh cuz I thought about how Baker is doing Special Forces these days, some 20 years later.

Just wanted to share, I’ve got nothing really insightful to say about it. I’m just annoyed. Kyle prolly just drew it in straight pen, no pencils. It has that “first take” look about it. And it’s still so good. Aarrggghh. It’s not fair. How old was he then? 19? Geez.

Too bad he didn’t do the cover, tho. Yikes.

    Dear Frankie Sirk,

    Your posts about Kyle Baker, Marshall Rogers, Steve Rude, Quarter Bins and so forth illuminate uh, illuminate… I don’t know. Are they some hazy, missing link..? You’re more articulate.

    I just saw the new edition of Storeyville: congratulations!

    Your Pal,
