Sparkplug Highlight: Tales to Demolish #2 by Eric Haven

While driving around Oakland, ruminating on the history of underground comics in the Bay Area, the main character fatally hits Dan Clowes. After convincing his partner to help him hide the body, he immediately goes on to accidentally kill another indie comics darling. The two spirits meet in the afterlife and, because God likes their comics, are able to return to Earth to exact revenge. “I Killed Dan Clowes” is Haven’s hilarious, self-reflexive (and superbly rendered) jab at himself and the independent comics scene.
