SHALOM: Love in the Time of Homeland Security

If you are my age and you grew up reading comics, then Lance​ was one of the folks who​ helped raise you. If you are my age and you read, read about, write, or draw comics, the​n​ Lance is one of your Godfathers. And he is there in the world of books and comics. Woven gently into the details. Lance is an artist. He is a writer. He is an observer and a maker of excellent story. His work, simply, is truth. Each image he creates is its own art piece. The body of Lance’s work as a whole is one of the finest demonstrations of the subtle complexity and nuance of what it takes to even attempt to tell a complete story about who human beings really are​...what we go through. And his focus is breathtaking. Lance’s art for telling a story is a gift to us all. A wise man once said the next level is not somewhere to get to, it is a place to be from. Lance Tooks is from that next next level.
