INSIDE BASEBALL – 2011

New Year 2012
Shall Earth Endure?

Happy New Year and all that. Looking forward to getting on with this Apocalypse Now thing, aren’t you? It’s like Y2K on steroids.

So, I was thinking of doing a best of 2011 list – but I should just call it a personal favorites list. Here goes – in no real order:

Ganges #4

Love and Rockets #4

PukeForce webcomic

Thickness 1 and 2

– new Gary Panter minicomic

– Dash’s animatic

– Gabrielle Bell minis

– Tom K new Transwhichever minicomic

– seeing all the Powr Mastrs originals at Dan’s house floored me

Forming the book by Jesse M 

In Situ by Sophie Y

– seeing Kramers 8 printed was a big thrill

Neonomicon was scary and amazing

Color Engineering shattered me into a million pieces

– seeing Rege’s originals for new Cartoon Utopia epic

– collected 1800MICE was great

Love From The Shadows was great

Paying For It was weird

Weird was good

Open Country 1 and 2 are my jam.

– my Blast Furnace Funnies comic made my parents cry

– new King Cat always makes me cry

– lots of deaths in the family this year made me cry

– Gary Panter made me laugh so hard that I cried (link to drawing with his head down at Kramers signing – scroll to bottom)

– I saw two different women on the subway crying. I offered both a new handkerchief. Only one accepted.
