I’m just kidding, there’s nothing special in here. Just some links and stuff.
On the site today:
Tucker Stone reviews Winterworld:
But lets be honest: coloring inside the lines of the post-apocalyptic genre isn’t a field anybody needs help finding average-to-great examples of; you could fake an epileptic seizure in a decently stocked Barnes & Noble and end up with a decent chunk of the stuff just by picking up whatever your flailing hands knocked to the floor.
Can I mention again how outrageous and sad it is that Bill Blackbeard didn’t make it into the Hall of Fame? Thank you. Seriously. I know, I know, it’s just an honorific, but… c’mon.
Thanks to Rob Stolzer, we have a little more information about Slim Jim cartoonist Raymond Crawford Ewer, whose spectacular work was featured in Art Out of Time. These postcards to a friend from the 20 year-old artist are pretty wonderful.
Young Sammy Harkham sent over this link to work by someone I’d never heard of, Tiger Tateishi. Exceptionally surreal manga and paintings.
I’m not sure how I missed this before: A link (NSFW) to the Wrightson-Bode porn classics from Swank magazine. I remember seeing this work in a Wrightson compilation when I was a kid and being deeply confused. The combination of those two art styles becomes this gnarly bubble thing… and I like it. Dig those colors, too. Minor but impressive porn comics itching for a reprint. Now there’s a business idea for parent company: “Eros Classics”, in which the highest standards are applied to archiving the horniest porn. Wally Wood’s complete Gang Bang on sumptuous acid free heavyweight paper. That one’s free, boss! A money-loser from me to you.
