The Floating Head of Humtulips is a spontaneous, four-way collaboration minicomic by Steve Willis, Jim Gill, Frank Young, and me -- Paul Tumey. This was created in about 20 minutes in 2012 in the hometown of Steve Willis, McLeary, Washington. We were in a tiny public building that had a comical sign on its wall: "Building Occupency Maximum 75 People." This amused us for two reasons -- one was the misspelling, and two: getting 75 people in that tiny building, you'd really have to jam them in. Frank Young incorporated the sign into his page for the mini.



Isn't Steve's last page/back cover perfect?

All four of us comic book artists appear in the new documentary, Bezango, WA, by Louise Amandes and Ron Austin. Find out what happened to the original art in this entry here.
