So, the title of the book Powell is reading, “Late Winter Days,” is what this comic was called before I changed it to “Carbon.” It was taken from some Wilco lyrics and I still really like it. I had this idea for a comic called “Late Winter Days” for a long time and it had a few starts and stops throughout the years. I took some ideas I had for that story (mainly Powell’s & Daniel’s stories) and mashed them together with others and “Carbon” came out. Once I have mashed enough ideas together that it becomes a big convoluted mess in my head, then I know I’ve got something good.
