A comic about Connie Hawkins

I just finished working on a comic for the next issue of Smoke Signal, and realized I never posted the comic from my last entry in that free all-comics newspaper. This is the story of Connie Hawkins, a basketball almost-was who I read about in Loose Balls, a great oral history of the short-lived American Basketball Association. There's also a chapter about him in The Undisputed Guide to Basketball History, the terrific book by the FreeDarko boys. If you have any interest in basketball, or any desire to understand what's exciting about basketball, those books are for you.
