Homeless man hopes comics will take him off the streets

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A homeless man in Indianapolis hopes a newly published comic strip in a local newspaper will give him a second chance.

Ray Miller lost everything when he quit his job to take care of his dying mother ten years ago.

He's using his current situation as the inspiration for his art.

The 51 year old is the author of the comic strip "Homeless Homies," which can be found in Nuvo Magazine.

He says if that's his ticket to success, he plans on giving back.

"I am going to reach down, and I have got to pull some people out that I know want out. I can not leave them behind," says Miller.

He says, if nothing else, he hopes his lighter side to homelessness will help people understand that not everyone fits the stereotype.
