S. Steven Struble on Li’l Depressed Boy’s comic world of rock and roll
Writer S. Steven Struble‘s comic Li’l Depressed Boy released a trade paperback collection of its first four issues for Image Comics last Wednesday. Called She Is Staggering, the trade spins the tale of Li’l Depressed Boy, a literal sad sack, as he meets a young lady, learns her name and has an array of musically related fun times. The comic is strewn with musical references, be they a concert from Kepi Ghoulie in the debut issue or LDB’s Devo shirt. We recently shot some e-mails back and forth with Mr. Struble about his creation and its history.
