More on “DanTay’s Inferno”

The proofs are here! The project I’ve been working on the past few months with local writer Dan Melligan – “DanTay’s Inferno” – has been sent to press and is almost done! Dan started this project as a gift to his grown kids, and the plan now is to print a few more and offer it to the public in the next few weeks. This is an adaptation of the classic “Dante’s Inferno” updated to modern times and with humor added. Some sample pages are included below. If you’d like a copy, leave a comment, email me at, or tweet @DAbstonCartoons. We’ll send details when we figure them out!

“DanTay’s Inferno”

Been working on this project with a friend for the past few months – a funny version of the classic “Dante’s Inferno” featuring my friend’s grown kids.  It’s about to go to the printers – here’s a sneak peek at some of the drawings… #DAbstonCartoons
