Encountering a Chickasaw father and son in the dense woods of Tennessee, the Maroon is turned away at his request for refuge. But when events take a turn for the worse and four riders come calling, will he earn the trust of the family that spurned him?
The Maroon is an ongoing comic book series created by Derek W. Lipscomb. The story details the events of a lone nameless Black Seminole, on the run from the law for an atrocity that was pinned on him! But as he searches for sanctuary, he not only encounters fiendish men and women, but mythical figures as well as the supernatural!
The Maroon is in the tradition of classic American Folklore, but with a modern mature spin.
It is American Folklore remixed!
Derek W. Lipscomb is a New England native and has been drawing since the age of four. Following in his brother’s footsteps, he began drawing his own comic books and creating characters ever since. Unlike them however, he refused to grow up, and is still doing it today.
While he does have his degree in graphic design, most of his artistic skills are self-taught. Drawing from a variety of childhood influences that include Godzilla movies, comic books, Star Wars, Saturday morning cartoons and various cinema, Derek enjoys paying homage to these ingredients in his various works. Many of his original art can be found on his personal website and his Deviant Art profile.
Residing in Southern California with his wife and daughter, Derek works as a Graphic Designer and writes and illustrates “The Maroon” under his Owl Eye Comics production.
