GEEK: ONE INSPIRATIONAL GEEK — DEAN TRIPPE

I’ve been listening today to a new Fatman on Batman podcast from Kevin Smith where he chats with the inspirational Dean Trippe. I had heard the name in the past, but now I know: Trippe has written and drawn a comic depicting his struggle with a childhood trauma, his love of Batman, and the way Batman eventually saved his life from this trauma.

Smith and Trippe dig into his strip called Something Terrible and his history with the Bat. Its been a great listen and an even greater joy finding his artwork online. The work is a mash-up, but beautiful melange, of Bruce Timm, Batman ’66 and Bold and Brave Batman. The artwork is vibrant, earnest, childlike, passionate, and mature all at the same time. A good reflection of Trippe as a person.

Check his stuff out for yourself!
