LA Ink Stains

In the third part of this epic interview, artist/writer Jim Mahfood, aka Food One, talks with Fanboy Comics about Los Angeles Ink Stains published by Image Comics. Releasing June 20th, Ink Stains is the first printed edition collection of Jim Mahfood's autobiographical webcomic. The graphic memoir gives readers an insider's POV to the underground/lowbrow art scene unique to LA, and tells the story of one artistic hustler's rise to the middle. As emergent writer/performer Herbert Russell aptly states in the book's 6-page intro, "Ink Stains is bottomless baskets of adrenaline nachos shot through a peristaltic wave of hedonism, neurosis, and gonzo documentary."

BLONDERWITCH MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

Thunderbolts is one of those titles that is always good when I read it, and I always drop off at some point for some unknown Bermuda Trianglesque reason.  Luckily, Thunderbolts has a history of re-inventing itself in fun and interesting ways, perhaps intentionally to bring back readers to the title.  They must be doing something right; numbered at #175 is unprecedented with rampant revisions and renumbering ruling the day. 

I should say here that I was a huge fan of the b@$tard child of Marvel's Civil War, Dark Avengers.  I was sorely disappointed when it was canceled after only 18 issues.  So, now it appears the latest Thunderbolts makeover comes in the form of a melding with the Dark Avengers concept. Color me intrigued.  I was initially drawn in by the beautiful cover by Mike Deidato, Jr. (That man can draw!) The cover did not prepare me for the surprise I was in for.
