Illustration alumnus John Malta (CCAD 2010) received a grant from the Xeric Foundation to self-publish his comic book, The Professor and the Paperboy.

“I am working on part two of  The Professor and the Paperboy, so I can publish both as a two-part box set,” Malta said.

The book follows the adventures of a distinguished professor of theoretical physics named Reginald Cornelius Oozeman and his paperboy, Grover.

The Xeric Foundation is a private, nonprofit corporation established by Peter A. Laird, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Planet Racers. The foundation offers financial assistance to committed, self-publishing comic book creators and qualified charitable and nonprofit organizations.
