As anyone flipping through this collection can tell, I’m a big fan of science fiction. It offers the opportunity to tell allegorical stories about the human condition without sacrificing the whiz-bang-awesome factor. My goal here was to make BART an extremely relatable character, despite the fact that he never says a word. Of course, a big part of that is due to his co-creator, Jesse Hamm, whose beautiful art perfectly conveys BART’s humanity, and his childlike sense of wonder and amazement.
