In 1988 I launched King Hell Press out of an old Airstream travel trailer that I’d gutted and retrofitted as an art studio. It was a 1950’s era design and manufacture and the original owner had riveted his nickname, The Flying Dutchman, to it’s prow. It looked like it had circled the country more than a few times. I knocked out a LOT of comics from it’s cramped submarine-like quarters: BRAT PACK, MAXIMORTAL, 1963, a bunch of TURTLES stuff, SWAMP THING and who knows what else?
I did this pen and ink of the Dutchman parked under the maple and ash trees where it overlooked the pond. In the window you can see the small stained glass that hung right in front of my writing desk.
I ended up selling the thing to a guy who fixed up old Airstreams as respite spaces for folks who had allergic reactions the the toxic building materials in their homes.1 comment
