Readers will find that this book is more than a collection of 156 fire service editorial cartoons. Paul Combs is a gifted artist who uses his talent as a tool to express his passion for making a difference in the fire service, the greatest job in the world.
Lieutenant Paul Combs is a 15-year veteran firefighter for the City of Bryan (Ohio) Fire Department, where he is a Firefighter II, NREMT-B, Fire Officer I, Hazardous Materials Technician, and Ohio Fire Instructor I for the City of Bryan Fire Training Academy. In addition to being a firefighter/EMT-B, Lt. Combs is a classically trained artist and award-winning illustrator. This unlikely combination has made Paul one of the most compelling and distinctive illustrators in America today. Paul burst onto the scene with a refreshing new style that married classical realism, manic energy, and a zany imagination for caricature. His lavishly detailed illustrations are published worldwide in magazines (print and online), newspapers, and books.
