Beland's Sketchbook Reunion: True Story!
Almost a year ago, a guy came into Flying Colors wanting to sell me an old sketchbook featuring the early (and I do mean early) cartooning of Tom Beland, creator of TRUE STORY SWEAR TO GOD and a number of one-shots and special stories published by Marvel over the last few years.
You can read my post on buying that sketchbook HERE!
Tom, who lives in Puerto Rico with his lovely wife Lily, has been visiting family in the Napa area so he took the time to drop by Flying Colors today. The photos here are from their visit today.
(In the photo on the top from left are Marty, Lily, Tom and FlyCoJoe)
And now, Tom has his old sketchbook back... and Lily has some reading to do!
All's well that ends well!
(and a plug: Read Tom's TRUE STORY SWEAR TO GOD, the funny, poignant and sweet look back on the beginnings of Tom and Lily's relationship. Now is stock at Flying Colors, natch!)
