Curtis Tinsley, a local illustrator and the pen behind our regular Crit Pick Comics feature -- walks us through some of his latest work (hey there, runaway sperms) and the genesis of his own business, Silverhand Comics.

He also touches on the recent Star Clipper closure, which was a real disappointment for comic appreciators around St. Louis. However, there is an underground indie comic scene building in St. Louis, and Tinlsey and company are on the frontlines.

Video and editing by Steph Zimmerman.
