The Columbia Tribune recently interviewed New Adventures of Jesus author Frank Stack, though the conversation leaned more towards his paintings and biography than the comic stuff:
While studying as an undergraduate in Texas, Stack met his wife, Robbie. She would become his closest ally and most trusted critic. When she died in 1998 from heart failure, Stack nearly stopped painting and drawing. He realized that for all those years, he was making art for Robbie. When she was gone, he was lost.
“It was real bad for me for a while,” Stack said. “We were real close. I missed her so much. I realized that when things in the world perturbed me, we could ignore them together.”
