After what's basically been the most awful and gloomy week for comics that I can remember it's nice to have a reminder of what I really like about them.

That Mignola work is superb.

I appreciated the ones on Dave Gibbons and Steve Bissette. Alan Moore is not only a genius storyteller, he's been blessed by some amazing collaborators over the years too.

Huh, I'm laying out a book right now and have spent an ungodly amount of time worried about sticking to the grid and pacing and too many close ups....very interesting.

Damn, I just read every single one of those. Lovely stuff.

Especially that orgasmically colorful and kinetic Victor Mosco page. ♥♥♥! I'm constantly concerned with filmic, animated ways to show motion in my own work - my current project is full of an ex-animator's love for the Smear - and this page is super inspiring.
