BROOKLYN - A local comic book author and illustrator is working on a new story, and his inspiration is coming right from Brooklyn.

Dean Haspiel is working on "The Red Hook," with a main character based on the waterfront neighborhood.

The artist gave News 12 a peak at the book, and explained that “The Red Hook” isn't your typical comic hero. Instead he's someone who starts out selfish, but learns that he wants to help people.

"The Red Hook" is expected to go on sale early next year. Haspiel hopes to eventually turn it into a series.
