Some People...

"Some People" is a comic about perspective, misunderstanding, and people. The artist writes a lot of interesting comics.

That's really cool, thanks Taft.

These are great. Is it wrong to hope he gets picked up by a (viable) newspaper chain and gets rich and successful from his art?

Well, other than newspapers as a dying, inherently-nonviable-medium-in-the-digital-age... ;)

Yeah, pretty cool work. I don't know how well the format would work for traditional print, though. Perhaps if you broke that into 3- and 4-panel chunks, it would work as a whole month's story arc. Something like that.

Hmm, but then a good number of them would pretty much suck, because it only really "works" as a larger whole.

Dunno, but yeah, I'd like to see more from him.

Woah, that first one was actually pretty awesome. It feels a bit like Chris Ware, in terms of art style, but less "artsy to the point of confusing nonsense" and more actual cleverness. I'm gonna read all his stuff now.

A lot of his other stuff is much more confusing.

Although this one is just hilarious

Um, I think the comic doesn't work. Character is one generation younger at the end then at the beginning.

I don't think it matters, but I counted it and it seemed to work out fine.

this one I thought was kind of poignant.

Pretty cool. I don't like that many comics/graphic novels but thought this actually used the format really well as a method of communication for my taste.

I love this. The balance of art and text is just perfect.

I loved this comic until the end, and then I thought, "well, what was the point of that?" That what we do affects other people a little? That we're all "some people" to someone? Those are rather mundane messages for all that story....it just felt like a fable with no moral or something, a terrific storytelling technique, very well executed, that wasn't telling much of a story other than, hey look how random people crossed paths and sort of thought the same thing at different points in time.

And that's not enough?

Enough of what? Enough for my personal satisfaction with the piece? Clearly not, hence my comment.
