In my entire career as a comic book artist I haven't done many complete comics stories by myself. Issue #12 of the first volume of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" may be the only comic book wherein I was reponsible for everything (except the lettering). Issue #15 comes close, but Jim Lawson inked that one. And I think I did all but the lettering on the first issue of "Stupid Heroes"... or did Ryan Brown ink that? It's been so long, I don't remember.
So anyway, this following piece -- a ten-page comic story titled "Pursuit" that I wrote, penciled, inked (and, sadly, lettered) -- is kind of unusual. Not for any particular inherent qualities of its contents, but just because completing a piece like this by myself was a rarity. I'm not sure why that was. Some have suggested that -- at least as far as comic book work goes -- I work better in collaboration with others. I think there is a certain about of truth in that. At the very least, I am more productive in collaboration with others.
This short story concerns a violent incident in the "life" of P-13, a police pursuit android. It's interesting to read this and consider some similarities between it and "Fugitoid", which Kevin Eastman and I worked on together. I am pretty sure "Pursuit" came before "Fugitoid".
As you may notice on reading "Pursuit", it has an open-ended conclusion which makes it seem like I may have been considering further adventures of P-13. In fact, I even put in an "End of Chpter One" caption on the last page. Whatever my intentions were at the time, I do know that I never did anything else with this character.
I don't think this has ever been published anywhere. -- PL
