It might not be your particular interest, but what's your take on horror comics? Do you think the genre and the medium work well together? If so, got any favourite creators/stories?
Yeah, I’ve written some ideas for horror comics but never drawn them, I feel like maybe my work is too based in comfort for that.
my favorite creators to do horror comics are Junji Ito and Emily Carroll.
here’s Ito drawing of Lovecraft: I grew up reading Lovecraft’s stuff. I guess he’s on the sci fi end of horror. with lots of old aliens and ancient creatures of the deep. I feel like he was the 1st artist whose work made me deal with the idea that I could sometimes like work when I found the person to have some lame ideas. Like how Lovecraft’s work seems powered by a fear of the other that also had him spouting some shitty racist ideas.
Today, we have friend of the site Moritat, who many of you may know from his work on DC’s “All-Star Western.” You also may know him from his work on DC’s “The Spirit,” Image’s “Elephantmen,” or from his numerous indie works over the years. Check out his deviantArt page, or pick up some of his original art from Cadence Comic Art! Be sure to look out for a new creator-owned Moritat book late this year/early 2015!
Darn.. I was enjoying watching Wes Anderson’s newest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, until half way through where upon the story had a cat thrown out a window to its death. Of course no real cat was injured here, but in accordance to my own, weird, convictions, I had to turn the movie off and it now joins a select group of films I’ve only seen part of due to cat deaths. Other entries include ‘The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo,’ ‘Boondock Saints,’ ‘Strawdogs,’ and ‘Splice.’
