EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- Every year, comic book stores celebrate Free Comic Book Day, an event designed to introduce readers to new comics, on the first Saturday of May.

However, many comic book stores are closed nationally so Evansville cartoonist Kyle Starks stepped in with a new comic that can be shared online. Starks, best known for his work on the popular show Rick and Morty, wrote and drew a 36-page story titled KARATE PROM in nine days.

KARATE PROM tells the story of a pair of teens who met at a martial arts competiton before attending prom together, when they are targeted by a vengeful ex-boyfriend and his cronies.
