Spudd 64 #2 by Matt Kish
This reference will only make sense to about two people, but this series reminds me a lot of the one I tried to do a number of years ago, but couldnâ€™t pull off because of my lack of drawing ability. Oh, and the story didnâ€™t resemble this one at all. Trust me, thereâ€™s a similarity there, somewhereâ€¦ Anyway, this comic. Itâ€™s huge, about 40 pages, with the first half being the ongoing story and the second half being something of an origin story. I compared this to Beanworld in the last review, and thatâ€™s still the closest real thing to compare this to, but heâ€™s quickly building his own unique niche in the comics world. Most of the drawings in here are completely unique, obviously coming from his own brain and not just a rehashing of another comic. A number of people do that, consciously or unconsciously, especially when theyâ€™re first starting out, but Matt seems to have skipped that step altogether. This series is fantastic in the most literal sense of the word, and I can see from the level of detail in each image just why thereâ€™s a long gap between issues. Great stuff and and I couldnâ€™t recommend it more highly if you like truly bizarre stuff.
