You know, I value all comment on my work, positive and negative, but sometimes there’s that little extra that makes a morsel of praise stand out. This one from Mark Badger came in the mail today, in response to When the last story is told:
Thanks, Mark! You may know Mark’s work for Marvel and DC Comics, personally I first encountered his art on Martian Manhunter in the late ’80s (I guess? The books ran ads for single issues of Watchmen, if memory serves me), and his approach to drawing blew my mind, it was so far from what I expected in a superhero comic book.
Years later, I found Mark to be a contributor in what has become my desert island book, Fantagraphics’ Abstract comics anthology — funny how things loop back on you in irregular patterns! Nowadays Mark is drawing Abstract Kirby and Julius Caesar, which you will find at his website.
So that was Mark’s
four star six-arm review of my book, above. Why don’t you get it for yourself?
