Reporter: Little Black is a special short story collection from comics artist Dylan Williams! Some of the material has appeared before in Top Shelf, Modern Industry and Typewriter. Much of it is brand new, long out of print or never printed work.
Dylan Williams was a cartoonist, a comics historian, and the founder of Sparkplug Comic Books, a small press publisher and distributor. Born in Berkeley in 1970, he spend his childhood years in both northern California and India. In a 2008 interview with Joe Biel, Williams described being a fan of both metal and punk music, and creating his initial comics with skater friends. Williams received little to no formal training as an artist.
In 1998, Williams moved to Portland, where he began Sparkplug a few years later with the initial goal of publishing lesser known work and getting it seen by a wider audience. Sparkplug Comic Books became a successful, well-known small press publisher and distributor in comics. Williams passed away from complications due to cancer on September 10, 2011.
