GIBBLE, GOBBLE: My long-running collaborator/alter ego Wilson Barbers has posted a new story on the Dimensions Magazine website. It's a text version of a story that originally was designed to be a web comic serial; unfortunately, the artist had other commitments, which kept the script from being illustrated. The piece references two of my favorite things: the Tod Browning classic Freaks and Klaus Nordling's underknown Golden Age comic, The Barker. (So you can probably guess that the story has a traveling circus setting.) So if you share my fascination with old-fashioned sideshow (and circus fat ladies, in particular), you might enjoy "One of Us."
