I read THICKNESS #2

5 Oct

by Mike Hansen

I got the heads-up on a new erotic-comix anthology that debuted at APE last weekend, and it is GLORIOUS (Glory-hole-ous?).

Thickness #2 is a gorgeous package that lives up to its name. It contains two-color stories by some amazing cartoonists, most of which I was unfamiliar with, but I’m glad I am now, because this comic is wall-to-wall Awesome. Seeing several different stories, in radically different styles, was like mainlining Real Comix after several weeks of mostly reading tame superhero fare.

Co-publisher Michael DeForge does a sweet front cover and a lovely, twisted story about gender called “College Girl by Night.” It reminds me of the more unusual and adult manga I’d occasionally see in Afternoon magazine, back when I was a manga editor. DeForge has a clean, minimalist style that blends well with his pacing and writing. I’m looking forward to seeing more from him.

DC New 52: …and Another Take on the Catwoman Controversy

26 Sep

Eric Canete offers his take on what happened after the icky, Bat-rapey last page of Catwoman #1 (click to enlarge):

Catwoman/Batman: The Morning After

Very Chaykin-esque to me.

Canete is a fantastic artist – check out his blog here.

Once again shamelessly stealing this idea from Bleeding Cool

Based on the stories on this site so far, you’d think I was a hardcore DC fan: Not true! I AM a hardcore comics fan, but I’d say less than half of the comics I’ve held onto are from Marvel or DC. I’m just a fan of good comics, of good storytelling in our perfect medium of Words ‘n’ Pictures, and DC has been doing a lot that’s worth talking about lately: The New 52 is bringing a much-needed sales boost into many stores, which means that comics buyers are spending more and/or that lapsed DC readers are returning to comics to see if the New 52 will hold their excitement. Probably both. We’ll see if DC’s current approach (which so far hasn’t done much for me as a reader) works in the long term…

Anyway, I’ll get to Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, IDW, Boom, and all of the other fantastic (and not-so-fantastic) publishers soon – promise!

For my homies at the Marvel Masterworks Fan Site

Here’s my bookcase with most of my Marvel graphic novels, as it looks right now.

It’ll probably look different in a day or two, once I put some more away…

(Maybe I should get a few more Billy bookcases before the redesign comes out…)

Look at these Marvel books. Just look at them.
