    Working Cartoonists' Sideline Paydays o' the Day:

    Bill Sienkiewicz

    Katsuya Terada

    Arthur Adams

    Benjamin Marra

    Simon Gane

    Robert Goodin

    Sophie Campbell

    Jorge Coelho

    Geof Darrow

    Becky Cloonan

    Ronald Wimberly

    Takashi Okazaki

    Chris Wisnia


    I suppose the non-comics folks can play, too...

    Angela Rizza

    Monarobot

    and, of course, Yuko Shimizu

    Why discriminate?

    Such an interesting cross-section from the industry. It's not like Criterion hasn't handed the reins over to proper cartoonists before, Seth and Dan Clowes far from least among them, but this is a rather dedicated dip into a varied but specific pool. I have to wonder who among my favorites didn't make the cut, as there must be hundreds of rejected Goji drawings littering the company's virtual vaults now.


    EDIT: Added an artist, moved an apostrophe, removed an i and added an s.

    Wow - I think that MechaG is great! And the Destroy All Monsters is super fun! I love how Gigan and Mothra are rendered, but don't care for their treatment of Goji. And lastly, Ghidorah is stylistically too different from the others...and looks to be pleasuring Goji rather than being engaged in battle.

    Amazing find, Joe. Those are some great discoveries. I have to agree with you, sometimes the stuff you pull out from charity shops/garage sales ends up being so influential and memorable in the grand scheme of things. Funny how that works. I have never read these, but I love that combination in production that really lends them that incredible style of the time. I love me some classic sci-fi/pulp BD, and these have all the earmarkings. Definitely something I will have to keep an eye out for now that I know they exist. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi there, you guys read cool books.

    Favorite two books I read were Jesse Jacobs's Crawl Space and Leaving Richard's Valley, by Delforge.

    Ah, STRAIN. That's a good one, written by the man responsible for Fist of the North Star and drawn by one of the best Manga artists ever IMO. I think i prefered SANCTUARY in some ways but its still solid stuff. If you want to read even more fucked up and weird Ikegami then you can't get better than WOUNDED MAN or OFFERED. I picked up OFFERED when i was in Amsterdam in a discount bookshop, i was very glad they can read english over there. WOUNDED MAN took me years to find as a complete set. I very much doubt they will ever be republished, there is stuff in both of them that would never be acceptable nowadays!

    I liked these shorts. Albeit I’m not overly familiar with Jim Woodring’s work, this has definitely piqued my interest. I think out of the animation teams I liked Tamapro & drop and Eri Yoshimura best.

    I know this unapologetically edgy but I can't get this damn wrap around cover out of my head:

    Nice. Reminds me of the awesome book, Bloody Ukiyo-e (The New Atrocities In Blood) by Kazuichi Hanawa and Suehiro Maruo.

    Classic book and Maruo is one of my faves. Got a print of his hanging in the toy room. Funny story: I was wearing a Dada (from Ultraman) shirt the other day and the wife pulled out the label and told me the design was by Suehiro Maruo. Mind.fucking.blown.

    ^ Your post has my PTSD flaring up something awful! Time to mutter for a few hours while absently flipping through some pages of Yummy Fur.

    @toothaction David David David, everybody prefers looking at Yummy Furs :razz:
    However, around that time, Chester was not yet that Canada megastar he his now and McFarlane was robbing your fellow countrymen of their glory !
    That was sumptin'. . . That being said younger me was not that much into American comics, be reassured. Sure Spidey and that Canuck Wolvie was on my early pull list but my main readings were elsewhere. Philémon, Adèle Blanc-Sec, Raymond Calbuth, Théodore Poussin and the NEVERTOBETOPEVER Génie des alpages.

    My favorite thing in the above is that Spidey balaclava. Something about the added prominent mouth hole makes it terrifying!

    Are you sure you didn't mean Les petits hommes verts?

    Can a name get more French than Michel Fiffe?

    By the way, was this Canadian on your pull list?

    I know, right?

    (and he's Cuban BTW)
    But of course! I guess I should have invoked the purple font or typed out a winky face, haha.

    Reading House of X/Powers of X. Don't know Hickman's work at all and have not read X-men books since Morrison but it's pretty entertaining.

    @bryce_r I was really into Hickman's whole FF / Future Foundation run. It was a product of it's time.
    I did not follow what he did after. HoX/PoX looks great, I might look into them down the road.

    Spidey's FF costume was one of his worst though
