CulturePOP Photocomix on Dean Haspiel

In CulturePOP: Photocomix Profiles of Real-Life Characters, our own Seth Kushner has been profiling fascinating subjects in his own unique fumetti-fied way and this week he tackles a profile on Cartoonist, Emmy winner, ACT-I-VATE founder and subject of our new book, Dean Haspiel.

A version the photocomic,
The Angel was originally created for the book, Graphic NYC Presents Dean Haspiel: The Early Years, which is available in shops this week or at Amazon

An interesting note about Seth's profile on Dean is that it's actually written by Dean himself.  The text for The Angel was originally written for a two-page strip Dean created for Overflow Magazine.  He provided Seth with his very personal words from the strip to use in creating the photocomix profile, creating a unique collaboration.
