In which Patt Kelley is obsessed with the world ending. You can read his comic, The Abridged History of the Moon, in its entirety over at his blog. It was Kelley's entry for the Comics Workbook Composition competition, and another rumination on how only something as huge as the world ending would finally lead people to recognise the value in themselves and each other (NB: the dude on the floor in the grocery store is the approach I would take). It's a little melancholy, but realistic and strangely affirming. I love the way he's used colours here; this comic marks Kelley's first foray into digital (apart from the initial pencilling, it was all done in Photoshop) and I think it's a great success.
And let's make this Patt Kelley day: here's a review of his excellent book (originally published over at the Forbidden Planet blog), What am I going to do without you? which was released digitally by Top Shelf last year, and given a print release earlier in 2013. The collage model cover of this is still one of my favourites; love that stone-y, plasticine dinosaur lying in the dappled sunlight.
