Splendor And Misery, Clipping.

Just finished reading “Origin“, Dan Brown’s latest book. The twist at the end was surprising, and the whole novel was very well researched, informative… but it wasn’t as exciting as the ones that preceeded it. Still, it did keep me guessing who the perp was until the end, so 3 out of 5 stars.

anonymous asked:

What comics do you read? And by the way, great art! :) I really like the atmosphere that pervades in it!

I guess just a buncha alternative/indie comics, and I definitely need to read more outside that range 

But here’re some suggestions/favorites if YOU’RE INTO IT:

Blankets by Craig Thompson (yeah)

The Nao of Brown by Glyn Dillon

Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki

Duncan the Wonder Dog by Adam Hine

Notes for a War Story by Gipi

Solanin by Inio Asano

Stitches by David Small

The Arrival by Shaun Tan (does this count as a comic? It’s heartstompingly beautiful anyways)

The entire Scott Pilgrim series + Lost at Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley

Maus I and II by Art Spiegelman

Black Hole by Charles Burns

American Born-Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

Lo Fu Gee (Old Master Q) comics by Alfonso Wong

And just lots of stuff from the likes of Daniel Clowes, Adrian Tomine, Sam Alden, Hellen Jo, Michael DeForge, Anders Nilsen

And there’re just so

many comix to read man! Man.

Also thank you for the kind words, seriously.

steveneverypony  asked:

Hi! I was wondering if you would be willing to give me some recommendations for any good British/European comics that most wouldn't see in the states. I'm asking because I'm looking to expand my horizons in terms of the stuff that is out there as well as build my collection heh.

Heh. This has been sitting in my box for a while, and I’m going to take a quick shot. This will be off the top of my head, so apologies. And I’m going to limit to comics that were published primarily and originally in the UK. So - say - we’d get a British creator’s work for 2000AD but not their work for a US publisher. 

(It’s one of the jokes that go around is that RUE BRITANNIA, arguably the most British comic published in the last ten years couldn’t get nominated for the British comic awards. But still - that’s the way I’ll be framing these)

Also worth noting my European Comics knowledge isn’t the best in the entire world. I’ll be talking about stuff I just dig.

2000AD STUFF
The archetypal modern Brit-comic anthology. Around since the late 70s, and has all manner of great stuff by people you probably get in US comics. Random faves off the top of my head…

Any NEMESIS THE WARLOCK (Inc TORQUEMADA THE GOD) - any time anyone asks me what artist I want on a project, I always say “Kevin O’Neill. From the early 80s.” This is why. NEMESIS is what I gave to Fraction, by way to explain why Brit creators tend to be wired the way they are. This is what kids comics were in the UK.
ABC WARRIORS: THE BLACK HOLE - approximately 60% of how I write team books is entirely lifted from this.
HEWLIGAN’S HAIRCUT
ZOMBO
BAD COMPANY - And the other 40% from this.
ZENITH
CRADLEGRAVE
THE BALLAD OF HALO JONES
BUTTON MAN
MAZEWORLD
LEVIATHAN
SHAKO - which I tributed lovingly in the first issue of ORIGIN II
SLAINE: THE HORNED GOD

And a lot more, obv. I haven’t even mentioned any DREDD, y’know?

Assorted other anthology-based stories I dig…

CHARLEY’S WAR  - if you like Ennis, this is basically the Rosetta Stone. It’s the single biggest influence on my UBER as well.
HOOKJAW: Basically Shako, but even less ethical. Astounding.
JOHNNY NEMO

Let’s move off that, as it’s easy to get hung up on the Brit anthology stuff, as it’s the pulp pop end, and that’s arguably similar to the US end of things. The sort of pick-up of 2000AD by the current wave of critics seems to remind me of the 90s love of Hong Kong action cinema, if you see what I mean.

I mean, if you’re looking for another tradition - the actual mainstream cultural thing - go look at WHEN THE WIND BLOWS and GEMMA BOVERY.

If you want to look at the British 80s indie underground, start with Eddie Campbell’s ALEC books, which have been collected in the enormous and essential ALEC: THE YEARS HAVE PANTS. Go onto stuff like ABE: WRONG FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS.

Oh - HUGO TATE, which is also just been put in a nice collection.

Paul Grist? You know Paul Grist? He’s published via IMAGE recently, but his background is here. KANE is fantastic, but JACK STAFF is wonderful too. Also his collaboration with Grant Morrison SAINT SWITHEN’S DAY is one of my favourite single issue things ever.

(And is probably going to be pastiched in THE WICKED + THE DIVINE at some point.)

Oh - LUTHER ARKWRIGHT is another founding text of what you’ll think of the 80s British invasion. I’ve ripped off the first volume several times.

And TANK GIRL, obv.

Modern stuff?

THE NAO OF BROWN - Ludicrously good looking.
THE PHOENIX - one of the best kids comics in the world, sez I.
SELF-MADE HERO are publishing really interesting work, and is worth browsing their entire catalogue. I’m always interested to see the adaption work they publish, and their THE MAN WHO LAUGHS by Hine/Stafford is a real tour de force.
NO BROW are also doing great and beautiful stuff. You can start anywhere, but the Luke Pearson stuff would be my suggestion.

Worth noting that while they’re both British publishers, not all their work is British.

Quick fire stuff!

SOLIPSISTIC POP
SOPPY
CHOLE NOONAN
BLOOD BLOKES
Anything by LIZZ LUNNEY 
AFTERLIFE INC
THE LENGTHS

Oh - and they’re bringing back STRANGEHAVEN which makes it a great time to catch up with its slow-slow-slow Prisoner in the North of England vibe. First comic I ever bought at a British Comic con, for the record.

Late addition! If you want a single volume overview of a lot of British talent from a lot of generations, NELSON is a great project. Basically an exquisite corpse story, passing between creators, telling the story of one woman’s life.

Okay - that’s longer than I wanted it to be, and not as long as I’d like. Sorry for all my faves I’ve missed, but this will get you going.

And as it’s so long, I’m going to boil all of Europe down to THE METABARONS and go and have more tea.

(Not that the Metabarons is actually created by French people, of course. TANKING-U PENDANTS.)

É… 1 ano… É com toda satisfação eu pude conhecer essa banda ilustre como o Charlie Brown Jr, um ano se passou e tive que aprender que a vida é desse jeito e a mudança faz parte, e que na vida ou na morte eu nao vou estar sozinha porque eu tenho familia Charlie Brown e com eles eu realmente me sinto especial, e com esse 1 ano que passou eu pude perceber que o falso e verdadeiro se confundem sim! 1 ano que fez com certeza todos nós da familia Charlie Brown refletir muito e tambem mostrar que mesmo voce nao estando mais conosco é que o Charlie Brown Jr sempre vai estar vivo e fazer o seu sonho, o seu verdadeiro sonho que era ver a garota sorrir, a galera pular  e a multidao te chamar, ele se fundiu e nao vamos deixar ele acabar e onde voce esteja voce pode encontrar a sua paz porque o legado da sua banda com certeza está em boas maos… Humildade palavra chave.
