Tim Fuller Rewrites The First Graphic Novel For Source Point Press

It's Source Point Press time. It Rhymes With Lust is the first original American graphic novel in every definition that counts.  Written by the man who would go on to create Doom Patrol, Deadman and Guardians Of The Galaxy, Arnold Drake as well as Leslie Waller using the combined pseudonym Drake Waller, with black-and-white art by Matt Baker and Ray Osrin, it was a film-noir story of pulp, crime, politics and debauchery. Published by St. John Publications, it was incredibly ahead of its time.  And now it seems that it is the latest target of Tim Fuller. Who intends to take the comic and totally rewrite it for… more modern sensibilities?

Tim Fuller has previously done similar to other Golden Age Comics, defined as being in the public domain. Copyright got a bit freaky in the USA, where that art wasn't correctly copyrighted before the seventies, and was considered public domain, such as Night Of The Living Dead. And it seems that It Rhymes With Lust may have fallen into that as well. It also seems to be It Rhymes With Lust's year, as Matt Baker is commemorated in the current Marvel Comics continuity as the earliest gay African American man working as a comic book creator, while collectors pore over his early work.

Will any of this be reflected in It Rhymes With Funt? Maybe… it's part of Source Point Press' solciits and solicitations for February 2023.
