He crafted an original short story based on the character Cartaphilus from the creator-owned Starkweather comic book series by David A. Rodriguez. This short story was then adapted into a comic book script and painted by fantasy artist Patrick McEvoy and published by Archaia Studios, making Starkweather: Immortal issue 0, Piers Anthony's first true comic book work.
