While at a friend's house on Oct 2, 2013 I saw that he had an old copy of "Gilgamesh #1", a 24-page B&W ashcan comic that I made back in 2009, three years before I got the story published as a 170-page graphic novel by Soft Skull Press (buy on amazon.com)

I found the original files and I'm posting them here as 100 dpi jpgs. I think it's interesting to compare/contrast it with the first chapter of the graphic novel as it was finally published. (One major difference is the addition of gray tone shading in this version, which the eventual publisher opted against... mostly for time constraints.) 

Enjoy!
