Ok, trying something new, let’s see how it goes. It’s a very basic idea: each fortnight we’ll choose five panels, or sequence of panels (sequences must encompass no more than one traditional comic page, splash pages included) and put them into a post- just another excuse to show off more lovely comic art, really. Selection criteria is pretty broad- anything old, new, funny, beautiful, poignant or just something we really, really like for no discernible reason (may even extend to themes sometimes). Opening this up to everyone, if you want to send in your suggestions via the ‘contact the author’ link at the bottom of the post, please do so, otherwise I’m afraid you’re at the mercy of my taste, and a whole load of Batman.
Self contained strips this week guys: old and new, as I simply haven’t had the time to pick out favourite panels and write them up. Hope you enjoy these.
By Bill Watterson. Love the sheer exuberance in this: also, it’s Thursday- you should dance.
By Geneva Hodgson, whose work you should most definitely be checking out.
Kerry Callen returns to Super Antics and a pitch perfect oblivious dick Superman, after a long hiatus.
Lauren Z perfectly captures my alternating daily crisis.
And closing up with Love is Strange by Barry Windsor-Smith, demonstrating the ability of a few panels to convey to great effect a powerful message.
