Yep, it's Friday again and time for another tru-ish tale of Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#36)! This week: Cheesman Park! ... or DINING WITH THE DEAD MEN!
Cheesman Park is another one of those odd ball (though quite lovely) places that you find around Denver. This was particularly easy for me, since it's only about two blocks from my place. You see, Cheesman is a remnant of Denver's pioneer cowboy past. Once on the far outskirts where few would venture, the 'city' grew up around it. It became infamous over a 100 years ago while being developed as a park because... well, it's a surprise, isn't it? Just read the comic.
Originally from Philadelphia and Boston (where he picked up the annoying habit of using "wicked" as an adjective), Karl Christian is the writer/artist of such comics as 'Angst Boy Comics', 'Sturm und Drang', 'Schadenfreude', as well as 'Byron' for SLG Publishing and other comical tragedies and drunken accounts for Modern Drunkard Magazine. Karl now lives in Denver, CO with a large collection of tiki mugs and a pair of cats that stalk him for food. He also hates writing about himself in the third person. It's creepy.
