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…
Have your mind expanded and blown by Alan Moore, writer, magician, illuminated showman and creator of watchmen, V for Vendetta and the league of extraordinary gentlemen…
The Mindscape of Alan Moore is a 2003 feature documentary which chronicles the life and work of Alan Moore.
Alan Moore presents the story of his development as an artist, starting with his childhood and working through to his comics career and impact on that medium, and his emerging interest in magic.
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
Said this many times. Banal and horrifying. Glad Alan Moore agrees. At least we’ve got a wizard on our side.
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.
A blast from the past. Here’s one of my favorites from “A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible” Be sure to look through their archives at their other strips.
I like this particular strip because it captures the essence of psychotherapy, paranoia, fear of intimacy and being in a relationship, and dream logic combined with wish fulfillment. Theres a lot to absorb all at once
