Diebold #1 was published in 1994. It was written by me with artwork by Brian Clifton (who did the picture in the logo for this blog.) The front cover was by Sam Kieth and the back cover was by Mike Zeck. On the second printing (yes, we did a second printing of the comic) we flipped the covers and Mike's cover became the front one and Sam went to the back. We self published the comic under the name Silent Partners. We did two issues of the comic and than kind of imploded. We received some good reviews and had decent sales for a black and white comic book at the end of the boom. I'll talk more about this comic in other posts. We financed the comic in a fairly unusual way. More in other posts.
