So there’s this guy who passed through some of the same art archives as I did, way back in the nineties. Christopher Snowdon, aka Radd. Since 2004, he’s been doing this comic called “Attack of the Flying Spud” – it’s a loving parody of basically every Japanese space battle cartoon of the eighties. It’s also really beautiful to look at, with really nice muted Photoshop colors over pencils, which make the explosions all the more intense.
It’s also, finally, finished. The last page went up yesterday. Go read it. It’s 128 pages long and a fairly quick read, although it can be a lot slower if you stop to ogle some of the densely-drawn machines.
