Beat L.A. Preview 1

If you’ve at all kept up with the FourStory comic “Bicycle Cop Dave” by my friend, the mystery writer Gary Phillips and the awesome artist Manoel Magalhães, you’d know that Dave exists in a particularly seedy, especially gritty version of Los Angeles.

But I’m going to be expanding on this universe a bit myself, in the upcoming comic “Beat L.A.” which will come out in September. This week, I’d like to show you a little preview of things to come.

Behold, a week of sketches by Manoel Magalhães’s while we were putting this together! You obviously recognize Dave.

As far as I’m concerned, Gary’s set some seriously strong ground work.

It’s my turn, now, to show you just how corrupt this city can get.
