It has been a busy summer and I’ve fallen behind in my blogging. I’ll be back soon with updates on RASL #3 and other projects. To ease myself back into the swing of blog posting, I’ll point you to some comics I like.
A few weeks ago Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O’Malley posted a piece they did together called Bear Creek Apartments. If you haven’t already seen it, check it out. It’s fun and spooky – - and very much a combination of their two kinds of story-telling.
I’m also a big fan of both artists’ work. Hope is known for her thoughtful and beautiful work in Flight, and (my favorite of her books) Salamander Dreams. Hope has also written Gray Horses and her new book is called Chiggers. Bryan’s Scott Pilgrim has taken the comics world by storm. In it, Bryan takes manga and video games and bends them into something original and awesome. O’Malley’s sure-footed pacing and engaging characters remind me why I like comics. A lot of people have been singing the praises of both Hope and Bryan (a couple in real life). If you would like more info on them, or some of their other projects, check out their websites…
