The Doorman

Summer, 2022 / No. 49

Taddle Creek does not exactly have a large stash of unpublished work sitting around. This proposed cover for Taddle Creek No. 31, by the cartoonist Cole Closser, is a notable exception. The magazine is pleased to be able to present it here for the first time. 

Cole Closser is the author of the graphic novels Little Tommy Lost and Black Rat. A native of the Ozarks, Cole is an associate professor of art and design at Missouri State University whose work has appeared in a variety of publications, including The Best American Comics and Black Warrior Review.
