So, there's not much on this blog, is there? Problem is, a cartoonists' work is actually pretty dull... sit down in the morning, draw, go home, drink a beer, watch TV, whatever. Repeat for a few months. Plop! a comic books pops out. Take the afternoon off. Ok, back to the drawing board now.
So, in order to have something to write about, I've decided to mention things that are not of my own doing, things I love but suspect might need even more love. For starters:
Ragemoor is the return of the fabulous team of Richard Corben and Jan Strnad, and it's just one of those things, I don't care how much love it gets - I actually suspect it's a good deal. But hell, this could never get enough. When I was a tiny little artist in the old days, nothing would make my day as discovering a hitherto unknown Corben book, and no Corben comic could make my day like one scripted by Strnad. This is just the best thing ever.
Ragemoor has it all. It has baboons and nasty things in the basement and the best parody of Poe you'll find in any funnybook anywhere. Everybody is suitably doomed and comes to a sticky end. It even has a character that looks like he came straight out of a early 20th century performance of an Italian opera.
Out from Dark Horse. Go give it some love.
I mean, isn't it lovely? Copyright Richard Corben and Jan Strnad, natcherly.
