How the magic happens.

Just noticed Ron has posted a little video that rather gives away the fact that, yes, occasionally The Klams do overdubs.

Remind me to buy this, 'cus it's the sort of thing I'd forget to do.

Mmm, whiskey-flavoured women.

So, anyway...

...I did a little guesting on CBR/Robot 6's regular feature What Are You Reading? and took the opportunity to plug 2000AD, The Dandy and Doctor Who Magazine; three titles that often miss opportunities to blow their own trumpets on an international stage.

It's The Klams versus Ron Abernethy* of Sunnyside Comics infamy.

There's performance footage of all three tracks over at The Klams' official home.

Rage against the barcode.

I enjoyed Devilpig's rant almost as much as I enjoyed the picture.

Well, this is great, but damned if I'm able to afford it...

...ThreeA looks like it's getting ready to unleash the Mongrol.


*Updated with mo'info*: he should be hitting the Bambaland store next Monday, and then retailers after that.  It'll set you back an eyebrow-raising $250, and that includes worldwide shipping apparently. But damn - look at his little face.



Fegredo goes all Steranko for his missus.

Now THAT is an anniversary card.

Well, this is way better than IRON MAN 2.

Brendan McCarthy's variant cover for DC's XOMBI #1.

Basically, it's Brendan drawing Bruce Lee. innit?

Still in shock and awe from Cinnamon Girl? Cop a load of JET!

2 ˣ Devilpig. The Punisher one is the clear winner, though.

I don't feature much Wolverine art here, due to my entirely jaded relationship with the character, but I did like the delicacy of Jae Lee's linework in this 'un.  Lee is something of a one-note artist, but sometimes he plays that one note very well.

Simon Fraser channelling Hugo Pratt for Valentine's Day.

I was going to post this yesterday, but I was overtaken by tides of laziness instead.

Can't believe Phil Bond posted new TANK GIRL art on Flickr and I hadn't noticed.

Oversight corrected.

Smell the horse.

If you got horse problems, I feel bad for you son.  I got 99 problems, but a horse ain't one. Hit me.

Some comics-to-movie news that seems to have slipped under the radar.

Don't think I've seen this at any of the main movie or comics news outlets, but Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo's classic body horror FACE is being made into a film - the official site of the production is over here.  They have a Facebook presence over here.

It was a damned fine comic, and worth searching out - part of the 1995 Vertigo Voices series of one shots that also included KILL YOUR BOYFRIEND, but unlike it, has been unfathomably allowed to fall out of print.  I think it would be very easy for DC to rectify that situation - by putting together a tidy little package of it and the three issue series GIRL, and their short stories together from the WEIRD WESTERN and WEIRD WAR anthologies.

...the Designboom piece on that Moebius: Transe-Forme retrospective looks fantastic.

Jean Giraud camping it up, yesterday/tomorrow.

*Update* Looks good photographed on an iPhone, too.
