Stephen DeStefano of ‘Mazing Man and Venture Bros. fame is working with writer George Chieffet on a graphic novel for Fantagraphics called Lucky in Love.
“LUCKY is actually a book that’s been years in the making, though,” he says on his blog. “And LUCKY wasn’t always LUCKY. Originally he was named ‘Cholly Potatoes’. A year or two after that, he was named ‘Lefty’.
I thought it’d be fun to share some sketches and strips I’d done over the years developing the character—I’ve tons of this stuff, but here’s a little of it to start with.”
