C.F. Makes It Big!


Tuesday, December 23, 2008

Our man (er, one of them) in Providence, C.F., has finally made the big time. Here is his interview in Vice. I like this interview for how business-like it is. I never get to talk to him that way, so for me it’s revealing and good.

I also want to present my very own Top Five of 2008:

Top Five Hilariously Dumb-Awesome Comics Frank Pushed On Me This Year:

1) Slash Maraud “It’s a complete set! Paul GuLAAACY!”
2) Kick-Ass “C’mon man, it’s AWEsome!”
3) Random issue of The Shadow “It’s the MARSHALL ROGERS issue, dude!”
4) Robotech (Something unintelligible)
5) Marvel Fanfare #40 (“It’s all Mazzuchelli! It’s his loose, arty style!”)

Bonus number: The Bill Sienkiewicz New Mutants issues!

And that’s my list for the year.

    Thanks for the C.F. link! I love that dude. Or rather, I love his work.

    Finding Powr Masters late this year was, well, almost a relief, like oh, phew, there it is, i found it. It’s the first thing I wanted to re-read over and over, both for it’s visual rewards and the closed system of logic that he gives his world. You have to take a couple passes to get a feel for it, or at least I did.

    This comic reminds me what I like about comics and art. Give this dude a high five for me, and a lil’ kiss on the cheek.

    Oh, and can we go to the parallel world where the comic adaptation everyone is waiting for next year is Powr Masters?

    40 years from now Trevor Von Eden will be the subject of a multi-volume retrospective edited by Woody Devlin and published by D&Q. Just like his old pop's job for John Stanley.

    Slash Maraud is my one of my all-time favorite Gulacy comics, thereby making it one of my absolute favorite comics ever. There’s nothing “dumb” about it, it’s just “awesome.” I own, like, three copies of the entire series. It’s … amazing.

  9. Frank Santoro says:

    I would have never guessed you liked Gulacy, B.
    Just playin’!! hahaa

    Before I knew what “art” was, I had that Bill Sienkiewicz “New Mutants” type poster on my 7th grade wall, the painted one with all the Warlock diode-type circuitry glued on to it, and would look at it and think “art!” That was before I learned that “art” isn’t supposed to be reverential or celebratory. Now I hate “art.” I still like the poster though.
