Confessions of a Failed Comic Book Artist, Part 6 (a.k.a. Split Personality)

split personalityAbout a month ago I was going through a box of junk that had been sitting in the bottom of a closet, when I made an amazing discovery. In the box was a file folder full of stories and art that I created between the years of 1979 and 1982. Most people would be embarrassed by stuff like this, but I was merely amused, as it gave me a glimpse into my imagination when I was just a kid. One of the things I found amongst all this old work was a comic project I called Split Personality. I have no memory of this project at all. Clearly, it was inspired by the Marvel character Deathlok the Demolisher, but seriously, I do not remember this at all.

Looking at the work, it appears to be consistent with the stuff I was doing around 1981 and 82, when I had discovered Heavy Metal magazine, and started to do stuff that was more gritty. I have no idea if I ever created anything more than this character bio and one page “epilogue,” which was actually a prologue. So, here, for the first time, is Split Personality.
