Barron Storey is one of the most influential people that I have had the pleasure to talk to. He has been teaching for many years, and counts some of the top creators in comix as former pupils. Those that have had the fortune of being students of Barron, include, Kent Williams, George Pratt, Peter Kuper, Seth Tobocman, Daniel Clowes and many more. His new book, Life After Black, is a reproduction of one of his incredible personal journals. It is an incredible testament to his talent, and well worth checking out.
