Bryan Lee O’Malley art for Puerto Rico and a Twin Peaks confession.
I just introduced my goddaughter to an old favorite of mine Return to Oz which scared the shit out of me as a kid in a way none of the iconic horror films of the decade did. No better time to re-present a lengthy interview I conducted with cartoonist Eric Shanower who has Oz stripes.
Some really good stuff in this old chat I had with Sturges. For fans of Vertgio, DC comics, storytelling, and/or speculative fiction in general.
Poolside with baby Cable reliving ’90s X-Men.
Pandemic streaming is here.
lalalalalala… you the first time the Smurfs revealed themselves and Smurfette’s first original hair color exposed!
Peyo’s early cartooning and design is pretty terrific. 1959 Gargamel looks like the broken down Wizard we all know.
And what does George Romero have to do with it if anything?
A Smurf sighting. The very first hint of the existence of characters that would create a multimedia licensing empire for Peyo.
The world is alright. I’m hanging out in the backyard all poolside with new Tillie Walden comics.
