An Atomic Moo Comic Shout Out
Hello El Moochadores! Since getting back from SDCC a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been wanting to post about some of the really incredible comics we picked up. Some are independent, some are more mainstream, but there’s a lot of really great stuff going on in comics these days. So, this isn’t so much a review as a shout out. A sort of, “this is fuck’n niffty, go check it out”- thing.
So in the spirit of “Wow(!)” one the best issues we picked up was Big Man Plans from Goon creator, Eric Powell and Tim Wiesch. Published through Image Comics; This is an incredibly dark, four issue, crime drama about an unnamed dwarf who, after a life of hardship, begins to fight back against the world. The art work is Powell’s unique style of grim/wonderful (just like in the Goon), and somehow makes a very ugly world very interesting. This comic’s is full of tragedy, dark humor, explosive action, and should probably be the plot for Peter Dinklage‘s next film!
We picked up the first issue from Powell’s booth at the con, but all four issues are available now at comic shops around the country or online. I’ve posted a few sample images from issue one below (mostly what I could pull from the web), but this isn’t good enough! Go get the comic!
