Artist Biography:
Dale Martin is a Memphis-based artist, writer, & publisher; best known for his Watusi the Talking Dog comics (both in print and online), he's been handcrafting comics featuring his original creations for over 35 years! In addition to his self-published work, Dale has had comics published in anthologies across the country. Find him on the web at www.smearysoapboxpress.com (blog), www.watusithetalkingdog.com (weekly strip), and on Twitter & Instagram @SmearySoapbox.

Artist Statement:
Cartoonist Jack Kirby, co-creator of Captain America, the X-Men & so many other comic book heroes, fought fascism in his work and in his life. Through his comic book stories, he exposed readers to the dangers of totalitarianism represented in villains like the Red Skull and the life-destroying Annihilus, characters I think would happily wear hairpieces to show solidarity with a certain like-minded politician. Drafted during WW II, Kirby landed on Omaha Beach shortly after D-Day; once his lieutenant learned of his art skills, Kirby was assigned the dangerous work of a scout, advancing into Nazi-controlled areas to draw recon maps for the duration of his time in the Army.
