Jeffrey Brown draws everything on TV ever: Well, not everything, but Fraggles and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse character and some of those crazy Yo Gabba Gabba creatures and some Kroft characters and so on. Top Shelf’s Brett Warnock shares the illustration on his blog.
Check out The Leaf: I wouldn’t expect a superhero named The Leaf whose costume is based on The Canadian flag to look half as bad-ass as this one turned out, but what do I know about Canadian bad-assery? Phil Latter talks to Leaf creator John Helmer on his blog. (Via Sequential)
I’d say Bully is insane, but his head is full of stuffing: Bully, the little stuffed comics blogger, is following up his year-long 365 Days With Ben Grimm and 365 Days With Hank McCoy features with perhaps the most ambitious and daring comics blog feature yet—365 Days With The Guy Freaking Out On The Cover of Action Comics #1. Man, that calf is golden.
“We tend not to have any nudity in comics, but violence can get pretty out of hand at times and violence is an essential part of what comic books are”: That’s David Finch, talking about one of the weird ironies of mainstream superhero comics, in this nice little feature from his local paper about his just-released Batman: The Dark Knight. The premise of the article, alluded to in the sort of vague headline—”Batman series creator tones down the violence”—is that while Finch has drawn all sorts of super-decadence in his career, Dark Knight apparently won’t have anything like The Blob eating The Wasp’s entrails (NSFW, that second link) in it. (The story also features a photo of Finch, which makes me feel a little bad about the many ungenerous things I’ve said about his artwork over the years—I didn’t realize that Finch was bald, and thus he and I are brothers.)
