Ben Steeves and I first worked together during the 2006 Comics Jam War, and during the 12 hours we were creating our guerilla comic, it became very clear that we communicated our ideas very well and worked together with a certain synergy that is hard to find between two artists. There was no question in my mind that I wanted to work with him again on something more real, and I proposed that he illustrate Our Time in Eden. Within a week of our first discussion, Ben was sending me sketches and ideas, and while I can't say I wasn't nervous handing my most precious child to someone else, I knew with the first finished page that I had made the right call.
It is my truest belief that what we've crafted together is an amazing comic, a deeply touching, beautifully rendered story, and I have not enjoyed a collaboration more than this one. I hope everyone enjoys this piece as much as I have enjoyed making it, and in the end I hope it has moved you as much as it has moved me.
Kiss the children goodnight,
