Today we’re excited to present another comic as part of our SOLRAD Presents imprint.
COVID-19 has been a weight that’s been pressing down on everyone, and cartoonists are no exception. Denver-based Karl C. Krumpholz has been chronicling his experience with a daily comic that we’ll be posting a week at a time here at SOLRAD, starting today and running every Wednesday.
We hope you enjoy the work, and check out Karl’s portfolio page here.
The Lighthouse in The City is a daily comic from Karl Christian Krumpholz (30 Miles of Crazy!, The City Was Never Going to Let Go, One Minute to Wonderland) that began at the start of 2020 to document his wife’s then-upcoming surgery and recovery. The comic continued as issues of social isolation in society became forefront in everyone’s minds. The title comes from the idea of feeling isolated in an incredibly crowded place.
You can view new pages daily on Karl’s Instagram and Twitter accounts and past installments at his website.
There are now three collections of The Lighthouse in The City available! The first book collects comics from January through March 2020, the second collects comics from April through June 2020, and the third collects comics from July through September 2020. All of the books are available from Birdcage Bottom Books, as well as Karl’s Etsy page.
