Congrats, Strange Detective Tales!
Congratulations to Patrick, Jesse, and James over at Oddgod Comics. Their marvelous funnybook, Strange Detective Tales, just got reviewed in Entertainment Weekly Magazine! I really love this little book, and have been frustrated that it wasn't making a bigger splash on the comics scene. Here's hoping this high profile review will change that. Jesse Bausch writes funny and crazy and scary. He shows a Joss Whedon influence, but isn't derivative. James Callahan (a former student of mine, so I get to take all the credit for everything he does, forever) is a rising master of Unexpected Pop-Culture Gross-Out Explosion Art. EW may consider his work "undernourished," but Mike Mignola loves it. Which one are you going to listen to?
The image above is a pin-up I contributed to the second issue.
Can you spot the Ayn Rand reference?
