Also in Eisner news, Mimi and I very warmly congratulate our good pals Charlie Adlard for his nom for Best Penciller on Walking Dead,
and Kieron Dwyer for the Best Cover Artist nod on Remains.
Odd that the two more genial, friendly guys I know get nominated for their zombie work. Go figure.
You've seen Charlie's interiors on Walking Dead,
but those checking in here know him best for his work on
while Kieron's best known around these parts for his work on
and the phone call interstitials in Proof of Concept of our good friend Ken Levin:
Congrats to both the guys!
The cat, she's out of the bag:
Perhaps only Andrew (Scurvy Dogs)
Boyd, alone amongst God's primates, really knows of and shares my insane love for Stevie Washington, star of MTV's late 80s bumpers. Minimalist and crazy, lotek and vibrant, I'd watch endless hours of Cult and Cindi Lauper videos just to hear: "Stevie Washington; the angry youth. Born to die. New Yorx, New York. ALL CRIME!"
So imagine my glee when Saint Andrew discreetly passes me a link to five entertaining minutes of Stevie and Zoya
in glorious BootlegVision™ and I hear again: "Hostage. Victim. Trap! Stevie is drowning in the sand of a giant hourglass; Zoya, tied to a chair, works on their escape. The Minutewomen take the secret weapon to the Warlock Watusi danceclub and turn people into disco zombies." To heck with decompressed storytelling; I'm all about the fill-in-the-blank nature of compressed
storytelling. Click the title card for glory:
