Haven't posted in a while and that's due to MA, work, blah, blah, blah. I've been pretty much burning 3 wicks -I didn't even know I HAD 3 wicks- so I think a little light relief in the form of a comics art post is called for.
Josh Simmons is really hit and miss for me: yes- his horrible, terrible stuff works in that it makes people uncomfortable and forces them to think why, but I really love when he's more subtle too, like in House, which was just a great study in silent, atmospheric, tension building. This recent Superman/Batman piece, however, I do love.
