In the Fall of 2020, The East Troublesome Wildfire wreaked havoc on the mountain communities of Granby, Grand Lake, and Estes Park, causing millions of dollars in damage, destroying over 300 homes, and displacing hundreds of people. Among those temporarily evacuated from the fire's path was cartoonist Mister V, who documented events as they transpired in a comic book journal.
Slow Burn: A Wildfire Journal chronicles the cartoonist's experiences with the second-largest forest fire in Colorado history. Employing graphic storytelling, this autobiographical journey records the tragic toll of the natural disaster, the overwhelming resilience displayed by a community rallying to help those affected, and the uncertain future of Colorado's ailing pine tree forests.
