WHO IS BOB?
Bob Holbreck is not just a character in a comic book – he’s a STATEMENT. Why let the gatekeepers dictate who gets in?
It’s tough work being a working-class hero, trying to grind out an existence as a professional hairstylist - and even more so for a renegade psychic. For starters, most potential clients just aren’t interested in your services. The ones that are? Well, they don’t know if you have the talent you claim to have, and they don’t really want to take the time to give you a try. To them, it’s better to spend their money on someone who’s “proven” in the field.
It’s a lot like being an unknown aspiring writer, actually. You know you have a particular gift, an ability to connect. But there are so many people claiming they have that same ability – and could totally prove it, “if they had the time” - that few people take you seriously. At least, they don’t until you get the thumbs-up from one of the authorities. You know, a gatekeeper: a publishing house, maybe a writers’ guild, or an agent, at the very least.
Once an undiscovered writer himself, Lance Lucero felt the frustration of trying to prove he was what he believed himself to be, and the experience left him trying to find a metaphor for it that he could build a story around. The BOB: NON-UNION PSYCHIC series is the result of that search: a story about what it’s like to have the talent, but not the certification to get in.
So who’s Bob, the Non-Union Psychic? Ultimately, he’s everyone with a special talent that’s gone unrecognized, every potential hero still forced to work a day job.
Maybe Bob is even you.
