Graphic Report: Menemsha Bike Ferry

Here is a Graphic Report from the front lines of the Menemsha Ferry on Martha's Vineyard that carries bicycle riders on a three minute trip across a channel in three minutes, saving them 45 minutes of danger and exertion. The print version ran in the Friday, June 5 edition of The Vineyard Gazette.

Love it! Great drawing and great comic about real people in a real place. This is what comics are for!! (Though if you drew an epic graphic novel I'd probably read it, Paul.)

Hi Paul: I've just discovered that I never responded to a question you
asked me two years ago on my own blog, about copies of the NY Graphic. I'm sorry about

Hope things are going well with the Bushmiller book and all else.

Hi Paul -- I just saw your 12-panel cartoon posted on Slate -- It's titled A true story -- is it based on someone you knew? I produce a magazine on parenting children with disabilities and was interested to know more about it. Thanks! Louise
