Meet William Randolph Hearst, the newest addition to the cast of characters of “Aces,” a webcomic about a high school newspaper that I write and my sister Emma illustrates. One of our main characters, spunky high school girl hero Rosie, in Play-it-Again-Sam-homaging-spirit, has an imaginary friendship with journalism legend (and huge history-crush of mine) Edward R. Murrow. We thought it would be fun to give her arch nemesis William Randolph Chilton V (In the comic, just referred to as “Fifth”) an imaginary friendship with a newspaper legend of his own. And who better a friend for an arch-nemesis that “You furnish the pictures, I’ll furnish the war” Citizen-Kane-inspiring Hearst?
Hope you enjoy our take on Hearst as much as Emma and I enjoyed writing/illustrating him. And click through to get to the other 98 pages of our webcomic—- we’re a really fun way to spend time f***ing around on the internet, scout’s honor.
