While several members of the Blog@ staff — JK Parkin, Graeme McMillan, Carla Hewitt and Tom Bondurant — will be attending Comic-Con International next month, I’ll be dutifully holding down the fort at Blog@ Central. So, somebody better grab me a copy of 5, the limited-edition book by some of my favorite artists: Becky Cloonan, Gabriel Ba, Fabio Moon, Rafael Grampa and Vasilis Lolos. That lovely cover is by Grampa.
“We’ve only printed 2,000 of these so they’ll go pretty fast, especially considering they are split between three continents,” Cloonan writes on her blog. “It also has no words so there is no need for translation; comics for everyone! No matter where you live you will understand the underlying message of the book: That we love comics with everything we have. We eat and breathe comics. We dream of comics when we sleep and we make them while we’re awake.”
