Hickee Appreciation

Monday June 12, 2006

I don't read a lot of comics these days, mainly because I'm not willing to carve time out of my "find new metal bands that no one has heard of" schedule in order to suppliment my "find new comic books that will validate my self-image as an intelligent consumer of sequential art" schedule. That said, there are a few artists whose work I check on fairly regularly. It helps that these guys are, for the most part, not very prolific. My favorite artist today, hands down, is Graham Annable, whom I've mentioned on this this blog before. I snoop his site Grickle.com at least once a week, but it has somehow escaped my attention, until today, that he posts a lot more at the Hickee blog. Hickee is an anthology comic that provides an outlet for the doodlings of Annable and his other animator buddies (who are generally too busy slaving over, I don't know, Stormtrooper animations for some X-Box game to dedicate much time to cartooning), and at least theoretically, any of them could post on the Hickee blog, but most of the posts are Annable's, and pretty much all of them are funny. Check it out, and if you find yourself in a comic store, pick up a copy of the new Hickee!

I'll second that! It should be said that Annable manages to be consistently hilarious, even when he's being maudlin...which is only occasionally.
It should also be said, in defense of the Johnsen's lack of comicky pursuit, that he's got SO much catching up still to do in comics that are already out there, it's easily forgiveable that he doesn't spend more time looking for new...plus there's that whole metal thing...

Allo there,
I am assuming a fellow Cynic fan? Any chance you would be willing to part with your copy of Master's _On the Seventh Day God Created Master_ CD? Have you heard Monstrosity's album with Jason Gobel?
