Patrick Farley, my long lost spiritual doppelganger, who I first discovered in 1996, and whose historical life resonates so much with mine, has created another extraordinary comic taking place exactly where I lived in 1975, Los Altos, California. My brother and I used to spend a LOT of time in those hills up behind Pore Clares. Farley has several times now captured the exact essence of my formative years across several comics. To this day I know of no one who has done this as eerily as he does. And he does it again here.
This comic is about Steve and Steve (Jobs and Wozniak), who lived just a few minutes from my house.
Comic: Steve and Steve
A few years later I remember driving with my dad by the small building that was then Apple HQ, with the pirate flag flying on the mast, hearing my dad uttering under his breath, “Damn hippies”.
See my related post about my time in Los Altos and Cuptertino in the late 1980s.
Probably the most extraordinary comic Farley has ever done is First Word – definitely check it out!
