Comic of the Week #4 : Prison Pit #3 by Johnny Ryan
Just got this through the mail from Amazon today and it HAD to be the comic of the week. The Prison Pit books are some of the most bad fucking ass comics I’ve ever read. Basically these books are about the disgusting gory adventures of Cannibal Fuckface and his “friends” on the hellish Prison Pit planet. There is plenty of violence, cussing, blood, black magic, fun and tons of laughs. Johnny Ryan is one of the best comic artists working today do yourself a favor and read his stuff.

Comic of the Week #3
This weeks comic is G.I. Joe #85 April 1989
This comic book is awesome because it is nothing but hot ninja action. Also the are no word balloons or dialogue only sound effects throughout the the entire story. As a kid I remember being pretty psyched when I got my hands on this comic. It is pretty clever the way that the writers handle the story using only sound effects and visual means to move the story along. The story involves Zartan and his Red Ninjas attempting to assassinate Storm Shadow and steal his famous sword. This issue is action packed from the beginning to the end and is one of the best comics in my collection.

Comic of the Week #2 : Sof’ Boy and Friends #2 by Archer Prewitt
I got this comic at a head shop in Austin Texas probably 98 or 99. I had been to this shop several times before and gotten some other underground comics like R. Crumb and Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. This comic was the first time I ever heard of Drawn and Quarterly and Archer Prewitt the writer and artist of Sof’ Boy.
Sof’ Boy is an amazing comic. the colors and the drawing style are on point and the story is both humorous and deep. The story is about So’f Boy as he happily and obliviously wanders around the worst parts of Chicago. He ends up being abused by a variety of characters. Good Stuff
This long out-of-print classic is one of the comics that inspired me to delve deeper into the world of Comics and Graphic Novels.
Comic of the Week #1
I’ve decided to go through my archives of comic books and review them one at a time.
The first Comic of the Week is Savage Dragon #11 July 1994 Written and Drawn by Erik Larsen.
Erik Larsen was one of my favorite comic artists from when I was younger. I loved his work with The Amazing Spiderman and followed him to Image comics with his Savage Dragon series. I’ve always liked the look of his clean drawing style.
This issue has the Savage Dragon fighting a demonic beast called the Fiend, and there’s also a bit of romance between the Dragon and his girlfriend Rapture.
Monster Week - my new horror comic based loosely on my real life job.
