As promised, here is the 2-page comic I did for Inbound #4: A Comic Book History of Boston, the anthology I've been promoting put out by the Boston Comics Roundtable. The book features 144 pages of true-to-history comics created by local independent comic artists and writers. Jump over to the site for more information.
For my comic I chose an event called New England's "Dark Day" of 1780 (here are a few sources for further reading 1, 2). Basically: sky turns pitch black at noon; townsfolk think it's the end of the world. Which means I get to draw tormented characters. But this wasn't a mere eclipse—supposedly the smoke from a massive forest fire may have combined with a low pressure system to make eerily dark clouds. It would sure freak us out if it happened again today.
I should add, this was the first comic I inked with a brush pen (after switching over from nibs).
You can purchase a copy of the anthology, here. And it's currently available all around Boston—even in bookstores!
