PECK Resumes. Again.

Okay, I’m using momentum from recent revisit to PECK Issue #1 to get back to where the story left off. I'm commencing with Issue #2. Again, again. ;)

Above is the opening page to Issue #2. If you're new to Peck, go ahead and recap issue #1 here. Remember from the previous installment: Dent was found by Cornelius Bacon in the Sactown dump, broken and plagued with amnesia. Short of a full restoration of memory, Bacon and Billy (his teddy bear) are able to nurse Dent back to relative health. But they know there's more beneath the surface of this soft-spoken one-armed transient. In this issue, Bacon continues to unfold the mysteries that explain Dent's past. He also reveals the tipping point at which Dent—a mild-mannered waste management engineer by day—becomes a wraith-like crime fighter by night …

bacon and "the way of the can"

Here's an update on a previous rough sketch I did. In fact, it was real rough before. See below. (Ink + watercolor wash on 98 lb Canson XL Series paper).

dent found

Wow, I totally thought this image was lost to the ages. I recently resurrected my old Powerbook and while rummaging through the drive, I found a small folder of Peck images. This drawing just really catches the atmosphere of fictitious Sactown and the coolness of Dent.

"In the immortal words of Pat Morita: Balance, Billy-san. Balance …" 
~Cornelius Bacon

the way of the can

Cornelius is the Master of Gar Bag Do (in kanji it is traditionally called "Cando" or Way of the Can). This martial art involves becoming one with the discarded, using it to one's advantage when required to defend oneself in battle. It also gives Bacon the uncanny ability to speak and/or emerge from any can or receptacle in the city. This comes in handy when he needs to communicate with Dent/Peck.

meet cornelius bacon

Cornelius Bacon is the unlikely mentor of the Dent (aka Peck). A highly educated man, Bacon attended Oxford and Harvard, securing doctorates in Eastern Studies, Philosophy, Literature, Linguistics, Physics, Chemistry, and PE. He traveled the world extensively for two decades, but spent the majority of the time in a Tibetan monastery. Eventually he found his way back to America, securing employment at an obscure state college known as Sactown University. He retired from SU when his obsessive pursuit of Gar Bag Do (the Way of the Can) began to overtake his academic career. He currently works and resides in the Sactown Landfill with his teddy bear confidant, Billy Trudare.
