This is a daily diary written by a man who gave himself five years to RISE to fame. I found the diary in a discarded box of books. I read it several times and became infatuated with this man's life. I decided to turn it into a comic, so I took each daily entry and re-wrote it word for word and only changed names and locations. Each panel is what he wrote for the day. It was written in the early 80's and covers a five year time span. I'll be updating it Monday through friday, every week.
