Might as well wear Cochlea & Eustachia while you’re reading about them in Folly: The Consequences of Indiscretion! His work might make you feel uncomfortable, but at least your clothes won’t be…
This is Folly: The Consequences of Indescretion by Hans Rickheit, published by fantagraphics. I followed many of these strips online, as they were being produced. I even commissioned one of the strips myself (it happens to be the one used on the cover).
Get to know the surreal, disturbing, yet addicting world of Hans Rickheit. You won’t be sorry. If you want a huge sampling of his work, go to http://chromefetus.com/page1.html
I think it’s safe to say that Paul Pope’s Masked Karimba is one of the most under appreciated characters in his pantheon of creations. That, and his very psychedelic elephants. Gotta love that guy.
Spider-Man & The Human Torch by Paul Pope
Spider-Man versus The Terrible Tinker by Paul Pope
I love Paul Pope’s Spiderman. It is probably my second favorite Spiderman, after McFarlane’s. Pope has an amazing understanding of what makes Japanese Manga, Jack Kirby, and Pablo Picasso awesome (at their best, that is.).
Here is a rarely seen gem. Apparently Paul Pope drew a pinup of Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen. So cool.
UPDATE: I just found out that this was a cover image for the new Watchman series. I wouldn’t know because I’m not buying/reading any of it. But this is very cool nonetheless.
From Michael Kupperman’s Tales Designed To Thrizzle.
This particular strip gets even crazier shortly after this. You should buy it to see the rest. (HOT TIP, click the pic to see the rest… then go to Amazon to buy the collected Tales Designed to Thrizzle Vol 1.)
