Tim Eagan Takes the Graphic Novel Plunge

Long-time editorial cartoonist Tim Eagan is taking the plunge into graphic novels — literally. Eagan has just launched a Kickstarter to publish “Headfirst,” the story of his near-fatal 3-story fall and the existential thoughts it inspired. Eagan’s local paper also had an interview with the cartoonist on the book.

Crowdsourcing for “Headfirst” begins today, March 30.
