Paul Pope on Art

Paul Pope guest blogs on First Second:

There seems to be a real psychological need for art -- for all the arts. Art offers us a reflection of interior ourselves, through the eyes and hands and words of another. Through meaningful art, we consider ourselves and our very condition of being human, and in the process, gain more insight into our true natures as living, sensing creatures living on this planet of ours which we call Earth. Comics has stepped out of the wide shadows of film and illustration, and is now invited to stand on its own, an infant medium full of potential and power. We are being invited to share our stories on a world stage, however long or short our stories might be. We've got a lot of work to do, let's show them what we've got.

Bachalo Spidey Sneak Peek!

Inside Mignola's Studio


Newsarama posts the Mike Mignola excerpt of the upcoming "StudioSpace" from Image comics.

Mignola on his approach to drawing:
Here’s an example, say someone wants to draw Batman’s cape, they think of it as a piece of cloth hanging down a man’s back. To me it is an abstract shape, so if I’m drawing Batman moving then the cape has to make some kind of interesting shape. I don’t what that shape is, but either I’m going to get it down really quick as a gesture, perfect, or I’ll spend the next six hours drawing and erasing the shape until I get it right.

The Big Eight Oh for Ditko!

Happy Birthday, Steve!

Beyond beyond...

Blogs to be bookmarked-
"Beyond the Groovy Age of Horror" features an interview with Richard Sala as well as some great scans and synopses of pulp novels.

"Datajunkie" (discovered by Nick) does some analysis of the work of Steve Ditko, Gil Kane, Wally Wood and Jack Kirby. It takes a while to load but it's worth it.

been waiting on this one for months now!!!


I've wanted to see more of the elusive C.F. since getting a glimpse of his work in the past couple of Kramers Ergots.

But come nov. 1st the wait is over. here comes: 'POWR MASTRS' (1/6!)

"C.F. narrates the story of a tribe of mystical warriors whose power relations are constantly in flux. As power shifts, so do physical and psychological identities."
-picturebox

pre-order it on picture box and you'll get it signed (with possibly a drawing) or pre-order from amazon for 30% off.

buy his posters instead?

maybe his album? (download the free mp3!)

comic Jashar hasn't posted about:



i just happened upon this underground japanese comic artist via picturebox...

Yuichi Yokoyama

his visual language seems really unique. flip through these::: you'll thank me later. i'm pretty sure this one is from 'fight'. here's another possibly from his upcoming 'new engineering' which comes out Nov. 1st.
buy it!
