Out today, and well worth picking up, is Dynamite’s The Spider #1 by David Liss and Colson Worley. I’d missed Liss’ Black Panther run, but based on this first issue, probably need to go and pick up the collections, because this is a pretty damn good pulp crime book with a fun twist at the end… What sticks in my head, though, is Worley’s art, which has double-page spreads like this:
Pretty JH Williams-esque, in terms of layout, right…? There’s more of that throughout the book, but it’s Worley’s colors that made me sit up and pay attention; he’s obviously doing it all online and his work reminded me of Frazer Irving and Fiona Staples in the way – The painterly approach using digital tools to create something that’s the best of both worlds, and entirely unique to their medium (and on time each month, too). Who’re the other artists working in this style that I’m not paying attention to? And where can I find them?
