Brandon Graham And King City

A ball of cats and some protagonists from King City
King City from Brandon Graham

Currently reading through Brandon Graham’s King City. I managed to pick up his Multiple Warheads series on Image a few years ago, and found the King City graphic novel over at Mega City Comics recently.

King City the eponymous domain is rendered as a haven for Sasquatch super-spies, military-trained master burglars and suburban luchadors. Graham’s playful use of language wends an atypical reality with unique artefacts to deliver a superbly illustrated and readable story. If you get the chance, source this book :).

Artists Who Get Paid Don’t Truly Care About The Project

Strange thoughts courtesy of Jeremy Holt a while ago that started a conversation centred on whether paying comic artists upfront for a project would actually reduce their commitment to said project.

Seems slightly wrong-headed to me, and smacks of the mentality peddled by some in the games industry that devs should makes games for the love of the art, whilst those same pedlars were bathing in the lucre wrung from the hard work of the possibly naive but technically gifted developers…

Many cogent comments and thoughts can be found here.
