Proghead, Part One: “Dawn of Man Tape Deck”

In Part Two: When September rolls around, our four heroes become quick friends. But the hazy tranquility of post-hippie high school life in Wilsontown is shattered when they have to deal with an early-onset case of Trumpism. April decides she has to take matters into her own hands. This time it’s personal….

Part Two will appear in the full 24-page printed comic. Please note that anyone out there who has purchased my book “Rock Docs: A Fifty-Year Cinematic Journey” and would be willing to write a short Amazon review of it, will get sent a free copy. (Just let me know when it’s up). If you would like to purchase “Rock Docs” directly through me, I will throw in a copy of the comic as well. Just $18 for both and that includes shipping within the U.S. If interested, leave a comment or email me.

Thanks, Rick Ouellette


  1. Wow Rick, that’s really something. I remember you telling me you were a Massachusetts “Roadrunner” back in the day but I didn’t realise you spent your time listening to King Crimson on an 8-Track. (I am assuming this tale is semi-autobiographical.)

    Good luck with this new venture – The rest of us play at all this malarkey but you actually go out and get things published. Well done.

  2. Thanks, Alyson. Ironically, the only time I ever made money doing it was when a publisher cancelled my first documentary book (Before “Rock Docs”) but I kept the advance! Since then I’ve been self-publishing and have reliably in the red. :-). BTW, the memory of listening to King Crimson on a friend’s 8-track while driving around was the jumping-off point for the comic. The second half of it will hopefully be out in a month.
