Born Under A Dark Star: The Lynn Hansen Story is a true-to-life retelling of Lynn Hansen’s life and mysterious death, as recounted to me by his longtime friend (and cartoonist!) Steve Willis.
I met Steve while working on the art exhibition A Life Underground: Exploring WSU’s Alternative Comix Collection. During his time as a WSU librarian, Steve had helped to start a comics collection within the university’s archives. He also helped to establish a second collection made in Lynn’s memory, of Beatles memorabilia and books/comics that Lynn owned. (We pulled from both of these collections during our show.)
