2002 in the year of our lord I was afflicted and diagnosed with asthma. Not asthma attacks or what you would see portrayed on television. Rather, my lung capacity was diminished to 25% of what it should have been. I was out of work for eight months during that time.
One of the main medications was prednisone, a steroid, that is widely known to cause the user to gain weight and or swell up. The good news is that I had time to read and draw comics.
I'm not sure but I think this was supposed to be published in the never finished, never published b-one comics volume one #4. No touch ups done on this image. The paper aged oddly.
