A Beat Comics Original: Failing to Quit by Daniel McCloskey! Welcome back to part five of Failing to Quit! In this six-part webcomic, readers learn how a dyslexic kid on the verge of failing English went to college for writing and eventually got a book deal.
Cloud Town, McCloskey’s debut graphic novel, arrives in April from Abrams’ Amulet line. He created Failing to Quit, a six-part autobio comic to tell the story of how Cloud Town came to be, and we’re proud to publish it for the first time here on The Beat!
McCloskey is the founder of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers project, and an employee at Mission Comics in San Francisco. He’s also a second generation cartoonist: his father is Toon Books author Kevin McCloskey.
Without further ado, here is the penultimate chapter of Failing to Quit!
