‘Daymares’ comic page


 DAYMARES (summer 1976)


Artwork c. 2010 Rick Grimes

GRIMES: “First use of Weird Dick in any strip. Queue of other characters from notes of January ’76 Professor origin dream become the principals for this Victor Moscoso/Winsor McKay inspired effort.

“With ‘cast’ drawings wisely dark-penciled rather than inked, submitted as part of mailing to Joe Kubert, late summer. He calls me on the phone and accepts me as another of his new school’s first year students, mostly on the potential and imagination of the above.

“The Daymares page itself depicts two of the earlier characters getting on Charon’s raft and then going down our bathroom sink drain. [Exit a lesser idea]. Pull back, there are the Professor and Weird Dick. (More diminutive). They say nothing and walk away.

“‘Primitive’ logo put in years later.” — Rick Grimes (April 17th, 2009).
