USM alum and graphic novelist featured in Downeast Magazine

Downeast Magazine featured USM Alumnus Ryan Wing -- and his comic book creation, "The October Ghost" -- in its November issue.

Wing's visual work is a throwback to the images of 1930s comics and the wacky stories of the 1960s, writer Joel Crabtree wrote in the magazine.

Wing took years to create the comic, which is being issued in a new, 96-page graphic novel, "The October Ghost vs. the League of Horror."

"Even after Wing, now 40, got a fine arts degree at the University of Southern Maine and took a job in IT, superhero geekdom and a creative impulse commingled in the back of his mind," Crabtree wrote.
