    Well, this started as a post to share the beautiful, beautiful tribute piece to Reed Crandall’s Blackhawk by Errol McCarthy (in Slow Death #7, Last Gasp Eco-Funnies, 1976) that I fell in love with after seeing it at The Bristol Board. But...

    Street Circus Steven Ingram We looked at Ingram’s Left a few weeks back, but he also sent over a copy of this, his first comic, something rather different. Where Left was a friendship and family...

    My only real exposure to Johnson thus far has been his visually gorgeous Shark King from Toon Books. I described his artwork then as clean, colourful, wonderful, and his storytelling made the beautiful pictures really...

    Oh, I did so love Batman Adventures, especially the early years around 92-95. It very quickly became my favourite Batman comic, driven by simplicity, fun yet intelligent, designed to be appealing to children, yet never...

But a little Google around and I’m finding myself intrigued at McCarthy and his work. A vintage Underground writer and artist,...

Street Circus Steven Ingram We looked at Ingram’s Left a few weeks back, but he also sent over a copy of this, his first comic, something rather different. Where Left was a friendship and family tale with a dark thriller twist, Street Circus is a weird thing, playing on the clowns as scary trope. Everything...

My only real exposure to Johnson thus far has been his visually gorgeous Shark King from Toon Books. I described his artwork then as clean, colourful, wonderful, and his storytelling made the beautiful pictures really zing. His website has lots of just as lovely commercial illustration… (“Online Dating.” the Atlantic Monthly, 2013) (“Deflated.” Unpublished. The New Yorker, 2011)...

Oh, I did so love Batman Adventures, especially the early years around 92-95. It very quickly became my favourite Batman comic, driven by simplicity, fun yet intelligent, designed to be appealing to children, yet never talking down. Kelly Puckett particularly created some excellent stories, usually done in one that issue. And the artwork matched the...

August 20, 2013 | 0 Comments

Tales From Scene City Issue 3: Babezilla Part 1 Rob Cureton Covered issues 1 and 2 of Scene City here, alongside Cureton’s more personal comics. Frankly I preferred the personal comics. Issue 1 was way too raw, but issue 2 recovers, and some of the lightness in the line I enjoyed in Cureton’s ‘Orful Comics...
