Artist: Jeff Stokely $14.99
What’s to Love: Calling all process junkies! If you’re as much a fan of the behind-the-scenes process of illustration as you are of the finished product, you will love this in-depth look at the making of the critically acclaimed Six-Gun Gorilla.
What It Is: This next installment of the Pen & Ink series collects Six-Gun Gorilla issues #1-2 in an oversized, 11″ x 17″ format that features Jeff Stokely’s inks alongside new commentary and creative insights from Stokely and writer Simon Spurrier.
My personal favorite on this list. Twisted, dark, funny. Anything and everything you want it to be! And read the foreword, it was eye-opening!
What’s to Love: John Allison’s daily webcomics Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round are hilarious, the kind of strips where every panel makes you laugh out loud. As a result, John has earned a large, loyal following of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years. Giant Days is an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends away at university, and is a series fans of things like Scott Pilgrim and Friends with Boys will not want to miss!
What It Is: Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Collects issues #1-4.
