The first time I saw this cover while looking through back issues, I thought it was going to be some kind of confusing flash-forward with the kids as teenagers. The kid in yellow? He's supposed to be about 8.

The average comic book artist has the same ability to draw a child as a medieval monk, apparently.

It was a serious issue but I think people take it too seriously, for good and bad. It wasn't some long drawn-out stroyline, just a one and done. Like it's clearly the creators working through their grief (grieving through their work?) and trying to express how beyond the pale the act was.

Also, while the subject matter is morbid, the art was amazing. People remember Doom crying but the issue had some incredible JRjr panels and pages.

It was also around the same time JRjr sketched for almost two days straight to raise money for the victims.

I really don't get what's so hard for you to understand. No one who thinks those panels are stupid think JRjr was wrong to feel grief or that whatever he did to help the victims is invalid. It's just a really goofy comic and awkward art that comes from a wounded place which has aged horribly, and that makes it funny. Publishing that issue was a misguided attempt to process grief that resulted in a very bad comic. 9/11 was a horrible tragedy but not every single piece of media made about it deserves reverence simply because it's about something serious or the artists were sincere, and it's really baffling to me that you don't seem to get that and that you think me correctly pointing out one of the most universally mocked panels in comic history is very funny is some kind of indictment of my character.

There are thousands upon thousands of awkward 9/11 tributes made by webcomic artists and deviantart users over the years and I wonder if you'd show the same over the top outrage at people snickering at those.

This is a completely legitimate take, the crying Dr. Doom page is widely mocked as being dumb and corny. Nobody thinks less of 9/11's loss of life but it's a dumb drawing with dumb words on it.

That last stretch of Power Pack as it spiraled into madness is worth checking out just to see total creative floundering. There's that sequence where in rapid succession Alex goes bald and then turns into a horseman that's accidentally some of the most visceral horror comics I've ever read.

To the best of my knowledge that kind of weirdness was so extremely common because wealthy benefactors would actually pay the artists to paint them as some saint's baby. That's how we got so many extremely adult-looking babies hanging around in medieval paintings.

Yeah thats totally...uh...shway.

You guys and dudes suggest good stuff in this forum, and also a headsup as to what is trash.

I really dislike Garth Ennis writing and most the the art thats used in his books. Got a copy of Punisher:Max for christmas and I'm gonna throw it in the trash in advance. The 2004 movie was just about all I needed of that character and as a person I don't wanna dip into any of his "gore and doodoo and cuss words" writing.

Edit; Oh cool it was recycleable.

Between babytalk jokes and people throwing away Christmas presents in late April I'm really not sure if this last page has been an elaborate referential joke I'm not getting.

In case anyone else is confused by the Roachman comic, I will provide clarification.

I do not believe that this clarification was in just bob's initial unattributed phonepost but perhaps I did not interpret his posting correctly.

It is from a very good book The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye by Sonny Liew. The book has won many awards.

I believed the book to be well-known. I also believed Jillian Tamaki to be well-known.

Several people in the BSS Chat Thread were not familiar with Jillian Tamaki. I want to acknowledge others were familiar with Tamaki. Perhaps everyone in this thread is well aware of Sonny Liew.

You can see several of the Roachman pages at the above link. There are other examples of Liew's art at this link. The link contains a summary of the book's concept.

It all belongs in the Good Comic Book Art thread.

I hope this post is concise and readable.

That sure is a run on sentence. No idea what it means, other than the comic is obviously not from the 50s.

There is a link in the sentence. There is also the name of the book and the artist but at the risk of making an effort post:

quote:

Sonny Liew is a Eisner-winning comics artist, painter, and illustrator whose work includes the New York Times best seller The Shadow Hero (with Gene Yang), Doctor Fate (with Paul Levitz), Malinky Robot and titles and covers for Marvel Comics, DC Vertigo, Disney Press, Image Comics, IDW, Boom Studios and First Second Books. He also spearheaded Liquid City, a multivolume comics anthology featuring creators from Southeast Asia. He lives and works in Singapore.

quote:

“The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye” tells the story of Singapore’s greatest cartoonist, who grew up after the war when the colonies of British Malaya and Singapore were agitating for independence. Charlie Chan documents that era of riots and protests in a series of vignettes, each one paying homage to some of the world’s comic book artists — and along the way challenging myths and rescuing from anonymity people written out of the official version.

What slowly becomes apparent is that Charlie Chan is fictional, maybe not even that famous, and the person “presenting” his work, Sonny Liew, is the real artist. But what isn’t fictional is the history that Mr. Liew presents — and the sensation that his book has caused. Since being published two years ago, Mr. Liew’s book has gone through multiple print runs and become central to a slow-burning national discussion over this country’s history, culture and values.
Maybe this was made clear in the original post of the art. I don't know.

The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is really good, and probably, shamefully, one of the very few books from and about Singapore that I've read aside from poetry and the handful of novels everybody reads and, like, Alfan Sa'at and Amanda Lee Koh. If this thread if your first exposure to the book, check it out, Sonny Liew is brilliant.
