Read any good comics/graphic novels lately?
I've heard a lot of positive review for Saga. Maybe I'll finally pick it up and give it a try
these pages are gorgeous!! can't wait for this to come out.
(also loved your work for a while! glad i found a fellow Pedrosa admirer :D)
Tom King's current run of Mister Miracle is my favorite thing I've read all year https://nerdist.com/tom-king-mister-miracle-interview/
The Seeds by Ann Nocenti and David Aja. Beautifully compelling 2-color illustrations and a compelling story. The first issue just came out and I've already preordred the next two issues.
It's definitely a good read! Some interesting pace stuff, but it's blending the cute aspect of their art with some large scale adventure elements, and a really big world. That with the way they paint makes it incredibly fun!
I really dig Saga. I read through Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 since I usually like to do the big collections.
From the same writer, Y: The Last Man was pretty great too.
Love Three Shadows! His next project looks really great too - http://www.lagedor-airelibre.com/en/
Yeah this was great! Not sure about other stuff yet, I'm just sort of scratching the surface of these small press indie comics, this one was my fav so far.
There's a shop near my studio that sells loads of weird and wonderful indie comics and zines, but most have been fairly style over substance.
Interesting stuff though makes me want to do my own!
It's pretty huge (~1300 pages), but I'd definitely say it's a fast read. I started it Monday night and am probably going to finish today.
how long is Bone?
right on. the cover of this reminds me of something animations by golden wolf. any other classics you enjoy?
i never read tonko house's comic, but they're really making big strides. thx.
woah this looks wild. anything else like this? any other favorites?
Currently re-reading Bone. <3 Other favorites: Nausicaä (Miyazaki) and the Showa series (Mizuki). And I plan to pick up Come Again (Nate Powell) and March (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/29844341-march) soon.
Wow, thats saying something. What are some of your other favorites?
I just checked out crawl space. It looks pretty awesome. Im not sure where ive seen their stuff before but it looks familiar. What do you call that style? It sort of reminds me of j moynihan
Zegas by Michel Fiffe is a really good one off book. It's very dynamic sequential design married to poetic and very real story telling. Its one of the most interesting executions of graphic novel artistry I've seen from the industry.
Harrow County -
Beautiful, dark illustration with an eerie, woodsy narrative setting full of fantastic creatures that walk the line between good and evil.
It's not exactly comics but I just picked this beautiful illustrated Mythology book. It's really beautiful. https://www.amazon.com/Mythology-Timeless-Heroes-Anniversary-Illustrated/dp/0316438529
The two series I have been keeping up with and haven't regretted doing so are "Lazarus" created by Greg Rucka and Adam Lark, and "Southern Bastards" by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour. I cannot recommend either of those enough.
I read Tales from the Hyperverse by William Cardini recently. It was weird and mad and I felt like I was missing something but really enjoyed it!
Three Shadows by Cyril Pedrosa! ultimate fave :')
Mooncop! I missed this one when it came out. Very simple, but so well done. https://www.drawnandquarterly.com/mooncop
The Dam keeper by Tonko House is SO fun, and very pretty. GwenPool is funny, and Gurihiru's art is super fun! I'll third Headlopper. The second Trade issue kinda slows down, and gets a little lost, but the first is a blast, super romp. apocalyptigirl: an Aria for the end of times is also Andrew MacLean and a really fun read. I have only read the first two issues and hear it gets weird and messy, but Lastman has some cool art, and fights, but also some weird fascination with people getting with people's moms (partly the show, partly the comic)
Genndy Tartakovsky did a one off of Cage, and it's super fun.
Head Lopper is pretty great. I'll have to check out Seven to Eternity
I read the whole thing about a year ago. It's crazy how much further down it goes. I loved it.
I've been reading the Akira manga. Trying to collect the entire series.
My favorite comic artist at the moment is Jesse Jacobs. Crawl Space and By This You Shall Know Him have really stuck with me both in terms of visuals and story telling.
I've been picking up issues of Head Lopper and Seven to Eternity, mostly for the awesome art by Andrew MacLean and Jerome Opena.
