How Larime Taylor Creates A Comic Book – In Pictures

Larime Taylor is the writer/artist of Image comic book A Voice In The Dark, currently being published.

It's been 72 days since Zoey killed someone. With her recent move to college, Zoey is eager to start a fresh chapter of her life — one where she can control her dark urges the way she has before. But when she becomes the host of a late-night campus radio show, Zoey must consider if she has given a voice to something far more troubled than her anonymous callers
