I just found this on the Flickr of the brilliant comics artist Philip Bond.  I love it.

CASANOVA, one of my very favourite comics, reaches the end of its third volume on June 20.  After the cut, please enjoy a preview of CASANOVA: AVARITIA #4 by Matt Fraction and Gabriel Ba.  And then go and buy all the books if you haven’t already and then squat by your comics store or iPad like a stoned gibbon with a sore bum until this wonderful comic is released.  Begin.

Farel Dalrymple is producing some wonderful work in this first chapter of what you might describe as a "stream of unconsciousness" comic, IT WILL ALL HURT at Study Group.  It seems to be an exercise in capturing the shifting settings and embodiments of dream reality, and it works (for me) almost eerily well.  Even though he has a shelf of awards by now, Dalrymple still seems to me to be under-read and low-profile in the medium.  He’s one of those creators that people should be talking about every day.  I know he’s working on a book for First Second right now, and he recently changed gears to produce a fine illustration job for an issue of PROPHET.

IT WILL ALL HURT will be adding new sections every Friday, I believe.

From his Flickr.  His new graphic novel is SHARKNIFE DOUBLE Z.  There’s a preview of it here.  I dimly recall writing a quote for its back cover.
