Mike Geiger’s making them, Hobo Divine’s making them, Mick Harrison and Kyle Marshall too. Heck, even Scott MacDonald is making them.
Put ’em all together and what do you get? A talent sandwich. You also get daily comix on thesupervillain.com. They officially launched yersterday, but there’s already a bunch of pages to scan through. Go point your eyes at ’em here.
You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter:
Here’s an example of some of the fun you can expect:
These guys are all talented shmoes and it’s cool to see how they each approach the task. For instance, Hobo’s second page reveals that he seems to be taking a very “cover-to-cover” approach to comicking, producing his take on the kind of ad us fogies grew up with inside our comic books. Mike’s doing a series of single-page strips, something we’ve seen him test out before on his own blog. They’re all setting out to post a page each per week, giving readers a daily dose of hilarity.
All these guys work in animation, and are part of a growing trend towards comix from animators. There’s a bunch of reasons why this happens, usually involving creative frustration and the accessibility of comix over animation.
But we can talk more about that later.
