MEGAHEX! 

MEGAHEX!
It&#8217;s here! i got it! I even cancelled my amazon order for it, not through a sense of righteousness, but because it was going to take way too long to get here and i needed my copy now! Thanks GOSH london for having had this in stock for at least a week.
anyway&#8230; the book is incredible. i laughed out loud way too many times, squirmed through the sheer audacious repugnance of some of the antics and thanked my lucky stars that i know no-one like Werewolf Jones! I couldn&#8217;t post up any pages cos i didn&#8217;t want to ruin it for you all, but suffice to say Simon Hanselmann is a fucking genius and I hope we get loads more books like this out of him. 
Comic of the year! 

p.s.- the vice Megg, Mogg and Owls are amazing too- a collection of those has to come along pretty soon right? I mean- he&#8217;s motoring through them a strip a week.

But Study Group really really came through with Sam Alden&#8217;s Haunter physical edition. I contributed to the kickstarter and got the book hot off the press, and it&#8217;s GORGEOUS! I can&#8217;t recommend it highly enough.

I am a huge fan of Space Face books, i love their quality editions and they have lots of trail-blazing artists on their roster. And similarly i love Sam Alden- he&#8217;s really going for it, pushing boundaries and shit. SO i should have loved Spaceface&#8217;s print edition of Sam Alden&#8217;s &#8216;The Man That Dances in the Meadow&#8217;.

but i didn&#8217;t. it feels cheap and actually reads better as an online comic. which you can read here

QCHQ By Jordan Speer, published by Spaceface Books, is the handsomest (sic) book i have picked up for a while. The guy is a maverick blender genius and i love to get lost in the crazy stuff he makes. Well worth a look.

Sometimes you see something and you just have to have it! I am a big fan of Nobrow press and their gorgeously printed books, the attention to detail and the roster of illustrators makes them one of the best publishers of new work out there. Browsing through the latest Nobrow compilation I realised that i spent all of my time thinking that Jon Mc Naught (of Dockwood/Pebble Island fame) had won, and that i wished Blexbolex had some stuff included…. then i saw this man’s work- Raymond Lemstra. What a talent! I love pretty much everything about them. I had to buy this book- its one of Nobrow’s limited edition ‘Big Mother’ books- an A3 printing on deliciously heavy stock featuring Lemstra’s disturbing and yet strangely satisfying work! And the cover has spot UV that makes it sing! 

this one gets pride of place on the shelf… if i can just find a shelf big enough!

Reading List: Flying Eye books have done a brilliant job restoring Dahlov Ipcar’s enchantingly stylised children’s introduction to dinosaurs ‘The Wonderful Egg’. Paleontologically dubious but delightful to look at!

Also from watdafac gallery in Madrid- Makuu Kuukan by Motohiro Hayakawa. These drawings remind me so much of the sort of thing my brother and i would cover reams and reams of paper with as kids- nebulous armies locked in mortal combat with gargantuan monsters and alien warriors… i could look at them for hours.

watdafac gallery did a mighty fine job on their Jon Boam book- which has just arrived here- love the ‘Boamiverse’ of Z-E-N-D-O-R and the almost hieroglyphic style and presentation in the book. Highly recommended.

Reading List: YEAAAAAAHHHH! for George Saunders- who won the folio prize today! I am a big fan and have devoured all of his wonderful words since stumbling upon Pastoralia a couple of years back. He makes the world seem normal by highlighting just how fucking insane it actually is. Tenth of December is his most recent collection of stories and it is truly excellent too. Well done George… more please!

Reading List: Ballad by Blexbolex. A tour de force semi-cyclical narrative that reads just as beautifully as it looks. When i read a Blexbolex book i get madly jealous at the guy’s skills, his colour choices, the huge amount of information he puts across with a limited palette and stylised idiolect. Ballad is also interesting because Blexbolex has decided to utilise halftones which makes the colour overlays delicious indeed. Also highly recommended are: Abecederia and No Man’s Land both published by Nobrow.
