Prometheus Comic

The Philadelphia City Paper is having a call for comic submissions and spurred on by my friend SM Vidaurri, I thought I would give it a shot. The format is odd, 9.875x4.875, so it makes for very long and short segments. Here's a very rough sketch for my idea- that Prometheus stole fire from the gods and, worse so than in the myth, the fire is misused and carelessly treated, and things don't go well for anyone really. It was a really natural evolution of the storyline and I was kinda surprised by the end myself. Maybe a little worried at where such a dark resolution came from. Must be in there somewhere. But certainly not from my living arrangements. I'm surrounded by kittens at the moment. And yes- it's adorable.
