Fish-philes know I don't read many new comics; but lately, due to friends' recommendations and Comic Con, I have been reading a nice handful:
Godland (Casey/Scioli) which is fun but may veer more toward "Kirby knock-off" than "Kirby inspired."
Charlatan Ball (Casey/Suriano) is also fun and the art is amazing!
X-Men First Class (various) to catch up on work from my comics pal Colleen Coover.
Rex Mundi (Arvid Nelson et al) which has an intricate, well thought through plot...a little tough to follow here and there, but a good read.
The sketchbook image to the left are the two doctors from Rex Mundi. I like the image overall, but I really F'd up the Eiffel Tower. It looked ok in blue pencil, but when I inked it, the perspective went all wrong. Oh well.
I'll keep you posted...there's a lot on my to-read pile.
