“Must be an inside joke.”

Monday, April 21st, 2008

Found myself with some time to kill yesterday before my afternoon plans and Midtown Comics nearby, so I headed in to browse around. In my perusals, I spotted “All We Ever Do is Talk About Wood” by Tom Horacek, which I first heard about over at Drawn!.

A tiny little tome in length and physical size, its quite large in quality of artwork and the laughs inside. This guy has a deliciously demented sense of humor and an adorable artistic style — a children’s book style with bleak and bitter punchlines. He’s working quite a lot of magic into each single panel comic.

Final word: a must buy if you like this kind of stuff. I certainly got my $10 worth out of this one.

Pimping for Myself and Others

Once again, BrooklynVegan has a slate of free CMJ shows he’s put together for the 2007 edition, (including a non-free one on Tuesday night at Bowery Ballroom).  And once again, I’m the monkey responsible for the flyer art.

So what do you all think?  Really, I swear this isn’t a simple attempt to fish for compliments to feed my ego — honest!   ^_^
