The BDC

Three from The Bubblegum Dada Corporation: The Ballad of Benji Muldoon; The Donor; & Tutti-Frutti.

The Ballad of Benji Muldoon is a 4-page poem that tells the tale of a very thin and small man that lived freely in a crack in the wall, until the day the tax collector paid a call!

The Donor is a 24-page script about an aristocratic fellow that decides to do his duty for Queen and Country by contributing his high-bred seminal fluid to the rapidly declining genepool, but the donation process comes with some unforeseen stipulations!

Tutti-Frutti is an 8-pager consisting of six short tales about some very unusual people. Among the assortment are the Mustachioed Sister of the Lord, a man with edible farts, and the unfortunate Boatman!

Through A Basement Window: The Collected Comix of Clark A. Dissmeyer 1984–1986 by Marc Myers and Richard Krauss

Through A Basement Window

Through A Basement Window: The Collected Comix of Clark A. Dissmeyer 1984–1986 https://buff.ly/2AOliau is a 160-page, Black and White, perfect bound, comic published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.

So, for a couple years in the mid ‘80s Clark A. Dissmeyer cranked out some really original, dark, horror comics and this collection bundles them all together! Clark’s take on the horror genre is fresh and approaches the subject in so many unexpected ways that you just can’t stop reading! Each story is unique and many of them are no more than one or two pages. There’s really a lot of gloomy goodies packed into these 160 pages! Clark’s art also takes on a bold harshness that perfectly matches the mood of the stories and nicely balances the pacing and action of the written word with the graphics!

Review: Mörf by Billy McKay and various artists

MorfMorf art Morf art Morf art Morf art

Mörf https://buff.ly/2m2ybeT is a 28-page, full color, digest size, exquisite corpse style continuous story illustrated by 25 artists. Created, written, and edited by Billy McKay.

This creative comic is the brainchild of Billy McKay. Billy’s vision was to bring 25 artists together and share a single image of his character Mörf with them, one artist at a time. The first artist was to draw their version of the character, changing as the liked, based only on a single image provided to them by Billy. The second artist then received the first artist’s drawing and repeated the process, and the third artist received the second’s and so on, and so on until all 25 artists had drawn and changed Mörf. After all the drawings were done Billy collected them, colored them, and wrote a continuous poetic story that stretched across all versions of Mörf and tied each image into the next! What an impressive undertaking, and what a visually stunning and delightful book!

The talented artists featured in Mörf are: Billy McKay, Marc Palm, Max Clotfelter, Jeff Heidel, Dale Martin, Ryan Holgersen, Micah Liesenfeld, Chad Woody, Henry Knoth, Warren Elliott (that’s me!), Jimbo Easter, Nate McDonough, Andrew Goldfarb, Adam Yeater, Jesse Thomas, O’Ryan McGowan, Joseph Tenney, Pam Bliss, Suzanne Baumann, Carrie McNinch, Jason Young, Bruce Orr, Bob Corby, Tom Cherry, and Bob Vojtko!
