Jamie Vayda & Alan King’s “Left Empty #1″

“Left Empty #1″ is the first issue in a story written by Alan King and drawn by Jamie Vayda. For those familiar with their work in the LOUD COMIX series, this is a 180° turn in terms of tone.

“For nearly ten years, I was married to the best friend I’ve ever had. Then, one morning she woke up feeling ill. Within a matter of days she was gone. Left Empty is the story of the years that followed. It’s a story that’s not always easy to tell, but one that needs telling. I hope you’ll join Jamie and me as we do just that – tell the story.”   – Alan King

Loud Comix #3 is a digest size, 36-page B&W comic illustrated by Jamie Vayda with stories from Alan King, Erika Lane, Eric Perfect, Joel Rivers, Christian Maes, and front cover by Aaron Rayborn. Published by Birdcage Bottom Books. 

This issue opens with Alan King's The Time I Shit My Pants at a Motorhead Show, a moving tale of teenage adventure packed with so much passion and recklessness that it leads one young starry eyed man to an unexpected stinky situation. Eric Perfect continues the downward spiral of reckless behavior with his drug induced paranoid contribution Cocaine Fueled that also coincidentally involves pooping. Joel Rivers Satan’s Fantastic Knockers shows us just how far a high school boy will go to see real boobies, and Christian Maes' Captain Catastrophy finishes off this issue of Loud Comix with a short cliffhanger featuring the Capt'n, his manager, and a bunch of pissed off bikers! Erika Lane’s short Roxie & Molly pieces pop up between the pages of the longer stories and feature a couple of working girls dealing with work-place violence, feminine odor, and Black History Month!

All of the stories in this issue, as in the first two issues, are original, entertaining, and well worth the price of admission. The hand lettering of the text, titles, and sound effects keep this comix true to its underground influences. Plugging Jamie Vayda’s old-school style art into each story charges Loud Comix #3 with the punk rock energy the stories deserve and any comix fan is sure to appreciate!

LOUD COMIX #4

By Jamie Vayda

Published by Birdcage Bottom Books

This fourth installment of autobiographical & fictional stories penned by various (mostly Southern) punk rock musicians, stand-up comedians, tattoo artists & other assorted riff-raff features tales by Jack Grisham (T.S.O.L.), Sonny Joe Harlan (Murder Junkies), Joel Rivers (Before I Hang), Alan King (Hellstomper), Gary Wrong (Wizzard Sleeve), Frankie Nowhere (Eastside Suicides), Erika Lane (The Stovebolts) and Jeff Clayton (ANTiSEEN)!

These tales of debauchery are then transformed into comics by the sure hand of Jamie Vayda (The Stovebolts). Comparisons have been made to William Faulkner on a bender, Flannery O-Connor, Tennessee Williams on meth, Carson McCullers and underground cartoonists like Johnny Ryan & Peter Bagge.
