Darron Jackson is a veteran DC Police officer and a weapons instructor.

But he has another love. He has been coming to Alliance Comics in Silver Spring since he was 12 years old.

Wednesday afternoon he was signing covers for a comic book, The Magic Order, which the store commissioned him to design.

"It’s my passion,” he says. “I've been doing it for years as you know, but now I'm just getting paid to do it and have fun."

Jackson says he's also done design work for the police from time to time, but this is a special moment in his other career, and in this environment, he wants to do more.
