I did this comic in 1980, it was my first crude attempt at sequential narrative using word balloons. We took a trip to BC and then to California. Enjoy!

These are drawings I did of our trip to NYC back in the late 70s.  The upper left picture at the Marvel office with Tom Orzakowski an amazing comic book letterer and Dean Motter, an amazing artist who collaborated with Ken on many comic projects, he's in my first book. The next picture is at Times Square, the next is at a great restaurant. Next row. we went to a Marx Bros. play then stayed in a creepy hotel. Bottom left we're on the top of the World Trade Centre, then off to Blooming Dales and because we couldn't afford a cab in those days, we took the subway. New York was pretty run down back then but it was still a fascinating city to visit. 
  I 'm  putting these drawings in my graphic novel  to show  my  early  attempt at visual narrative. They were really more like illustrated snapshots of our trip,  in the format of SX70 photos. Ken always took a camera were ever we went but I wanted something different, so this is what I came up with. Pictures without words in my own simple style.
