Daniel McCloskey’s FAILING TO QUIT: Part 4 of 6

The next chapter on our journey to Cloud Town has arrived!
A Beat Comics Original: Failing to Quit by Daniel McCloskey! Welcome back to part four of Failing to Quit! In this six-part webcomic, readers learn how a dyslexic kid on the verge of failing English went to college for writing and eventually got a book deal.
Cloud Town, McCloskey’s debut graphic novel, comes out in April from Abrams’ Amulet line. He created this short series of autobio comics to tell the story of how Cloud Town came to be, and we’re proud to publish them for the first time here on The Beat.
McCloskey is the founder of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers project, and an employee at Mission Comics in San Francisco. He’s also a second generation cartoonist: his father is Toon Books author Kevin McCloskey.
Without further ado, here is the fourth part of Failing to Quit!
