In addition to being a letterer for books like Casanova, Dustin Harbin is a fantastic cartoonist as well. He is the creator of the autobiographical comic Dharbin!. He also maintains a blog about making comics that is equally informative and hilarious.
Jason met Dustin at SPX and purchased some of his minicomics. A year later at TCAF, Jason asked Dustin to contribute this page to the FF9 project.
This page was originally going to be commissioned from Dave Sim, however Mr. Sim was less than accommodating. Though he agreed to draw the page, he refused to sell it, and told Jason that he would have to bid on the page in an auction. However, since Jason had given him the idea, he was willing to make a copy to give to Jason. Jason declined the offer. And we’re all the better for it, as Dustin’s take is fantastic.
