The Marked Man

This is my character, The Marked Man, who is marked both literally with tattoos and figuratively as a "Witness on the Run." As a Weegee (Arthur Fellig)-type news photographer, he stubbles onto the scandalous murder of a crime-connected politician. After he is beaten to a pulp by guards, he escapes, camoflages his battered face with tattoos, and goes underground, working as a carny hand. Meanwhile, he is being manhunted by both the government and also crime figures. He knows and has seen too much. I only did one seven -page story, I but had a whole world, and future plots worked out for him. Maybe someday.....the Marked Man will return.
