The comics are hand drawn in pencil and embellished with water coloring ~self-written the old fashioned way. It is a long and exacting process taking approximately a month to finish 1-2 pages. The comic books have created quite a following catapulting fans back to the classic comic book era of the 1970's.

The Mitchell's (a.k.a. Captain Walters and Nurse O'Brien) will be selling and signing comic books at Annie's Book Stop located at 1330 Union Avenue in Laconia on Saturday July 25 starting at 9 am.
