A little Serge Clerc to get me amped about work this morning.
Bongo’s Dream House
by Matt Groening
Golgo 13: The Impossible Hit by Takao Saito (1989)
This is a great comic that generates all its drama out of one solitary stray cat. It’s like watching a slasher movie whose entire plot hinges on that one early fake out scare from the first 10 minutes.
Somewhere out there, a selfish lunatic is raising a child to love Duke Togo from the cradle, and that kid is going to grow up wacked to the gills. Hail to the king.
P. 41 = a simple lesson on how to make two people talking look dynamic, even without backgrounds
(Brave Dan, Osamu Tezuka c. 1962)
