After nearly a year long siege, the British evacuated Boston on March 17th, 1776. When this happened, the soldiers who had been camped outside of the city made a hasty return to the town. More than Boston, the Warrens were interested in what they would find over at Breed’s Hill which was once again free of Redcoat occupation.
A man claimed he knew where Dr. Joseph Warren had been buried, and led Paul Revere and some of Warren’s brothers to the spot. When they dug up the body, Revere recognized false teeth he had put in not long before the battle, wired in with a special contraption he had invented just for Dr. Warren. There was no mistake, this was him.
Lest you think the only research I do is historical, I made sure that at the time Warren was exhumed the soft tissue would have been all gone. You know that if you’re an organ and tissue donor, someone has to, uh, collect that stuff before it can be of use. Yeah, my neighbor does that. So I figured who better to ask about corpses? He did his neighborly duty and after some investigating and confirmation, got back to me with an answer: New England, in the dirt, for a year? Nothing but the bone.
Whew. Because I would not have wanted to draw it otherwise.

This Saturday I’ll be at Packrat Comics in Hilliard, Ohio for Free Comic Book Day.
I’ll have graphic novels, A Providential Hello mini-comics and I’ll be doing commissions. I have very limited space so if you’d like a particular piece of Dreamer merchandise that you’ve seen me sell at shows, just let me know and I’ll be sure to bring it for you. I’ll be there all day from 10 – 5. Ernie Hudson from Ghostbusters will be there!
