Human Interest Stuff

If you are the kind of person who can still enjoy a story about a man, a dog, and some of the ways that they rescue each other, then Bill Messner-Loebs of Brighton has created something that may be of interest to you. Since the 1980s Bill has written for DC, Image, and Comico. He has worked on Thor, Wonder Woman, and The Flash. He also wrote and illustrated Journey: The Adventures of Wolverine MacAlistaire, a graphic novel about 19th-century Michigan frontier life.

Human Interest Stuff is a collaboration with Rodney Schroeter, and an adaptation of a short story by Albert Payson Terhune. Rodney did the writing, and Bill did the artwork.  Terhune wrote stories, mostly about dogs, in the first half of the last century.

The engaging black and white illustrations are carefully executed and creatively laid out so as to amplify, illuminate and enliven the text. They also bring the characters to life, captivating the reader and drawing them along. In short, the book is diverting, entertaining, and a pleasure to read. It satisfies, like a second helping of rhubarb pie.

The 32-page magazine includes the original story as well as the comic adaptation.
