McNeil Island Book Update

Fundraiser final report

Just an update for anyone following the fundraiser- after books and commissions, the final tally was $190, just $10 shy of the $200 goal to cover plane tickets, but so close I'm not complaining.

Attending the closing ceremonies and driving around my abandoned hometown was a very weird experience, but the comic is coming along well. Took the first 28 pages to critique group yesterday, and I'm feeling pretty good about the whole thing.


Thanks to everyone for your help!


  1. Colleen,
    I'm researching McNeil Island to find out info re a relative who was incarcerated there for "draft dodging" in 1944. Do you have any ideas where there might be info from that time?

  2. Well in 1944 McNeil was still a Federal Prison, so you'd want the National Archives to start-
