I was reading some reviews of my stuff this week.
One woman wrote about how the way I draw asses makes her back hurt. Makes me think I should tone it down. I'm on an old manara kick again an he's good at not doing it too dramatic, clessy italian that he is. There was a manara wine ad I would always walk by here in Seattle where the woaman looked just like the lady from click. made me think the wine tasted like fisting.
Also there was some talk about naming the type of comix me and Coreyyyy and say a Brian lee O'malley and our gang of dudes do-- Post manga or arcade logic or gonzo comics have all been thrown around.
I came up with the name Whirled comix.
it's a pun. I like those things.
Dan Buksa was asking for a list of all the crap
I've done in comics. I wanted to see how much I could remember. This is what I could do off the top of my dome .

So that's that narcissism. I'm sorry you guys had to see that.
I've been reading lots of old quarter bin comix.
I just read the first issue (of 2) of the Hanged man, chronicles of mazeworld from Alan Grant and Arthur Ranson (caliber comics). It's about a dude that is about to be hung and at the moment the trap door drops he falls to the ground in some crazy incan fantasy world. the whole place is a series of mazes and maps are like money. He's a huge bastard and everytime he tries to do anything shitty he back to being hung for a spit second. It's awesome.
I've also been watching lots of youtube on coreys wii. I call it the dr who machine. There's old Avengers episodes and Max headroom episodes --dr whooo.
Man I love the logic of older science fiction, like how in max headroom the future technology isn't even as fancy as what we've got now. I like pre internet sci fi. Once you get into all this jacking in and cyberspace what not I tottaly lose my boner.
ok I should draw. I'm 22 pages deep on king city 2 and I gotta finish my space man meets god color comic by the 11th.
wish me luck.
