過去Ｘ未來多題無用 漫畫 小誌 之 Pam Pam Zine #01
Freakie Pam-Pam Liu.
A story from Garo No. 165, 1977.
elbowhumble asked: whos tuffer, you or patrick? is mickey tuff? (i know how to spell tuff, i'm just having a laff)
this is something i’ve thought a lot about.
mickey is hands down the toughest. not even a contest.it’s a bit more difficult for me to determine who is toughest between me and patrick. if it’s just a matter of physical strength, patrick would beat me - he has muscular drummer arms, moves around a risograph and paper cutter all day, etc. *however*, i am much more nimble/agile. patrick gets short of breath faster. i also think my struggles with depression give me an unpredictable and dangerous “i don’t give a fuck” abandon to my fighting style - even if he pummeled my face into a mound of roast beef, i would still be able to flail at him like a wild animal. i’d maybe do something crazy like rip his nose out with my teethanyway, it’s a difficult call, but i think what’s important is that these sorts of conversations are happening within the comics community
jesus christ look at all them comics!!! i <3 trading (also, buying stuff)

Anonymous asked: what are your favorite comics/ what do you suggest reading?
This is a hard question! Feels like i’m being tested!! How about i just share with you the list of comics i just lent my (non-cartoonist) friend this morning:
Lapsos I and II by Ines Estrada
Very Casual by Michael DeForge
AREA CC by A.D.
Farmer’s Dilemma and Hawaii 1997 by Sam Alden
Rosalie Lightning 1 and 2 by Tom Hart
Big Busty Celeb Votes Satan by Benjamin Urkowitz
I should have thrown in The Greys by Olivier Schrauwen
Olivier Schrauwen’s ‘The man who grew his beard’ was one of the best books I read this year (I read a finnish translation). I had the luck of meeting Michael DeForge and ‘Very casual’ is still waiting for me to properly read it, just browsing and getting sneaky spoilery views, but everything’s he’s done is good. Sam Alden is one of my biggest inspirations these days, his storytelling so powerful, I don’t know how much I’ll be influenced by him once I manage to digest stories like ‘Household’. A.D. is making some amazing work that I follow on tumblr. And Simon Hanselmann has become one of my favourite online cartoonists (I must get the book).
Everyone is good, so much innovative cartooning happening these days.
Anonymous asked: I think I have a great idea for an ongoing sci-fi comic. I would very much like to draw it myself but I'm not very good (guys like you, yer misses, Rios and Stokoe produce some very intimidating work). So, that gives me three options: I could draw the thing myself and produce a subpar strip (which would benefit no one), I could get another (better) artist to draw it and give up some control (which I imagine would drive me crazy), or I could just let this thing wither on the vine. What do I do?
Just draw it yourself. Some of my favorite comics aren’t that well drawn. I think it’s about getting the ideas out. And the more you tell stories the more you learn. I feel like deciding that you’re not good enough at something or just handing it off to someone else is the easy way out.
Personally for me some of the fun of comics is both how fun they are and how many challenges they offer.
Forgotten masterpiece: Complete original art by Victor Moscoso for “Loop De Loop” from Zap Comix #6, published by Apex Novelties, January 1973.
