“I can’t recommend it enough” - Kevin Bramer
“One one level it’s an experiment in wedding Smith’s thin-lined, loose altcomix style to the doe-eyed, slackjawed strangeness of Umezu’s character designs, and to the spectacle of his horrific “punchline” panels and pages. The wedding’s a happy one, milked mainly for the blackly comedic effect of the contrast. “ - Sean T. Collins
Two Eyes of the Beautiful is now available to order. Ships on Monday. $5.
In case you didn’t “get” the message of SFVPN from its weird wordplay and big space battles, I spelled it out real clear on the cover!!!
A favorite panel from SFVPN.
I haven’t done enough weird double-space compositions like this one from SFVPN lately. I did a good sequence with them in SF#2. I mean it’s a regular thing to do but I was inspired by the Speed Racer film by the W siblings who created a funky language out of overlapping closeups with wide shots and layering them back and forth.
