i havent made a real journal entry in forever it feels like. mostly because i've been busy with work and life, so busy that honestly, i havent read comics in almost a year now.

BUT- recently i picked up Sean Murphy's :iconseangordonmurphy: Punk Rock Jesus… and was blown away and its pulled me back into reading, and not just creating comics (huge difference there). The last time i read a book where i felt the artist was in complete tune with the writing was Blade of The Immortal- Samura is probably my favorite writer/artist and BOTM is pretty much the perfect book in my eyes. And why wouldnt the art be in complete tune with the writing? its the same damn person. Books/people like these inspire- and are why i love comics and remain optimistic about the industry, it is the most complete and perfect way to tell a story, and it can all be done by one person ( well, one very talented and driven person and a small team of production geniuses that get the book marketed, published and on shelves).

anyway, from books like DKR and Blade of the Immortal, to Sweet Tooth and Punk Rock Jesus- here's to writing and drawing your own stuff. More of us that are capable and have the opportunity should be doing it. Not saying it'll be any good, but hey- you never know till you try.

PRJ is what every comic artist/writer should aspire for... it's one of the few books I check out. CREATE! books like PRJ are what stands a chance of breathing life into the comic industry...

I just picked it up as well. I'm really pumped about this project. I haven't read anything this great in a while. I'm a huge fan of Blade of the Immortal as well!

too good not to mention. With Habibi and 20th Century Boys, one of the most enjoyable reading these last few years...

the book is awesome man, and i felt the combination of the b&w art with the pulpy paper showcased your style even more.
