Gordie Page, 28, vanished from his bedroom at a foster care home in Grand Rapids, Michigan on the night of May 27, 1991. Page left no clues as to where he was going or why he left the home. He was not carrying any identification or cash when he left. The case remains unsolved.
This is the true story of Gordon Page, Jr. It is a 10 page mini comic, all in black and white and measures about 7x5 inches. If you like non-fiction comics or comics based on history or real events, you may enjoy this comic.
Here's a snippet of a review from Justin Giampoali of thirteenminutes.blogspot.com:
I enjoyed the story; in the end, a sad one about someone probably just trying to get home to his parents when he disappeared. Details like the baseball cards are chilling in their precision, but also logical given savant tendencies on the autism spectrum. The most disturbing aspect of this for me was that Hendricks captures a time period in the health care system that saw the rise in overmedication coupled with misdiagnosis, a silent epidemic that never really had any regulatory or legal repercussions for health care workers supposedly acting in good faith. Fans of any true crime or “Unsolved Mysteries” style shows are a group I can easily recommend this to, especially at the low risk price of just $1. Grade B+.
