PAGE EIGHTY TWO. Interior, Damien Kessler’s apartment. Cydonian Towers, Amazonis.
First off this week, a big happy birthday to everyone’s favorite Argentine artist- Nicolas R Giacondino! I told him that, in Mars years, he’s really not very old.
Second, Ape showed us their ad for next month’s PREVIEWS (Comic Shop Catalog) and it features our forthcoming FM OGN. It looks fantastic. We are really lucky to be working with a company that believes in our book. Thanks, guys.
I said, last week I’d have a quick webcomic recommendation. This week I’ve been reading ‘My Life At War’. By Luther Patenge with art by Matthew Materniak, MLaW is a gritty sci-fi military tale. It has a real David Drake/John Ringo feel, with a good sense of humor. It also deals with some ethical questions. This week’s page is a good example- addressing the topic of battlefield looting. Check it out if you get a chance (and like sci-fi military hardware).
This week’s music pairing has to be Garbage and their new single, ‘Blood for Poppies’. I am so naffing jazzed for this album. If this track is any indication, the album will sound like classic Garbage. 2012. Garbage, Blur, and The Stone Roses. It’s like a 90s time-portal opened up in my iPhone.
Finally, I just want to say that this page is (honestly) my favorite page to date. I think our heroines look amazing. I think Nic has perfected their “acting.” Nice one, birthday boy!
Until next week,
