I hope it’s working for him, whoever he is.
If a comics adaptation of a Civil War diary appeals to you, then gaze upon my friend Marek Bennett‘s Kickstarter for The Civil War Diary Of Freeman Colby, Volume 2 (you can get Volume 1 bundled in at some levels). It ends this week.

I have a theme song! :D It has a very Eighties sound.
♫ “Gimme chocolate!!” by Babymetal
Squeaky idol-pop mixed with heavy metal? Thanks, Japan!
♫ “Let’s Get Funky” by Hound Dog Taylor & The House Rockers
