While our intrepid air travelers continue on their way towards Isla Esmerelda, I’ve been busy at the drawing table completing the latest (and long overdue) Watusi digest comic!
Issue #27 features a full-issue tale, with character cameos by Shadowspark, Phantos, Suprawoman, W-Tusi, and Professor Harvey & Mitchell; artwork cameo by Robert Upton; and it’s all topped off by a jam comic featuring the art of Tom Cherry and Rusty Mathis! I think it’s a pretty good issue and, together with this webcomic, is moving me more into full-length stories developing Watusi and cast a bit more than I’ve been able to do in the past. You can find copies at Astrokitty Comics & More in Lawrence, at my table at the Comic Book I-Con on November 7th, or by getting in touch with me directly.
In addition to finishing my own comic, I recently had the chance to finish a book I discovered at my public library, one of the most fun comics I’ve read in some time: The Secret Science Alliance and the Copycat Crook by Eleanor Davis (Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books). She tells a great kid-friendly (and adult-entertaining) adventure, packing her pages with a nearly Chris Ware density of details … only with drawings that are lively and characters that are fun to be around. I highly recommend it!
So, any good reading you’d recommend? …
