Why “Merritt Road Comics”?
I grew up in a gray house on Merritt Road in Ypsilanti, Michigan (Pittsfield Township to be exact). I lived there from the time I was born until I was 15 years old, pretty much the entirety of my childhood.
There was something special about that house. I can’t think about my childhood home without thinking about the many adventures that I had growing up. That house was the epicenter of imagination. It was the Wild West. It was Sherwood Forest. It was a galaxy far, far away.
The name Merritt Road Comics reminds me of all those adventures that sparked my imagination as a child.
