Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira (1988)

I can find something to love in every scene of Akira (the falling glass, a bouncing helmet full of blood, lights appearing out of the silent darkness), but this is…this made a big impression on me as a kid. It’s still one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, especially when combined with the previous moment, where Kaneda leaps off the back of someone else’s bike, hits the ground running, and then ruins this guy’s life. It’s so thugged out. This might’ve been The Moment of the movie for me.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Kaneda is my favorite action hero.

“The Maxx meant a lot to me when I was growing up,” said cartoonist Jess Fink. “Sam Kieth was the first real exposure I had to feminism. Julie’s character played with the sad tired notions of women being exploited in comics and she was a real person with real flaws. The Maxx was someone who wanted to be important but didn’t know how. Sarah was a depressed, tormented kid with no friends having a terrible time in high school and I could relate. … I felt like I could write better characters because of Sam Kieth.”

I’ve always loved the Maxx because of its mix of hyper surrealist art and incredibly deep exploration into flawed characters. Despite the fact that these characters live in this depressing world and have these shitty hands dealt to them, they persevere which is where their true strengths show up as opposed to most superhero comics. It’s an incredible and underrated series that I recommend to anyone, comic fan or not. The comics and television adaptation were great. Check it out.

Buffalo Spiders — by Circus Devils

From their first album — Ringworm Interiors — 2001

Circus Devils are my favorite Pollard side project band. The name “Circus Devils”, kind of says it all. They are like a dark hellish horror nightmare carnival. 

She Saw The Shadow — by Robert Pollard and his Soft Rock Renegades

From the album — Choreographed Man Of War — 2001

Total Exposure — by Airport 5

From their first album — Tower In The Fountain Of Sparks — 2001

Pollard reunited with Tobin Sprout, of the “classic” GBV Lineup, for this side project. 

Chasing Heather Crazy — by Guided By Voices

From their twelfth album — Isolation Drills — 2001

This has got to be one of the most catchy songs in the GBV catalogue.

The actual original artist for this is good ol’ Ben Bates. I wrote this issue. (I actually drew the background for this image, but whatever.)
But, yeah, this is super cool to me. I showed it to Ben and I think it made his day.  duke-and-acceptance:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #39

Cover by Ulises Farinas

HEY! Check it out. 

This is the first time I’ve seen another artist draw Ben Bates’ version of Rocksteady and Bebop.

Ulises Farinas has got good taste in bebop and Rocksteady designs.
