Escapo from black and white to color. From Horse Press to Z2 Comics. Coloring an originally black and white work is divisive, but a lot of what’s happening with the atmosphere with mood and color is working here. I’m excited to see Escapo back in print, but I’m more excited to see how color works in the more dynamic and personal sequences of Escapo’s act.
"Crash is peculiarly resistant to attempts to summarise it with a single image. Its synthetic literary method depends on the conjunction within a verbal image of phenomena that are usually discrete. Ballard insistently establishes geometrical relationships between the body parts and postures of his characters and the technology that surrounds them: ‘By entering her vagina among the metal cabinets and white cables of the X-ray department I would somehow conjure back her husband from the dead, from the conjunction of her left armpit and the chromium camera stand, from the marriage of our genitalia and the elegantly tooled lens shroud.’ In the late 1980s, collage and montage became increasingly prevalent means of expressing thematic complexity on book covers. If ever a novel called out for a mode of evocation based on fragments and juxtaposition, it was Crash, but it was 1994 before an American design team explored this possibility."
Dr. Strange—BIGGER than the Beatles? Marvel must’ve thought so way back when, as the mystical one received his very first cover spotlight (on Strange Tales #130, March 1964, originally drawn by Jack Kirby and Chic Stone), whilst two members of the Fantastic Four met the Fab Four, obviously an episode of secondary status. Or so they thought…(Actually, while the Beatles HAVE stood the test of time, it WASN’T a particularly memorable meeting between the two FFs…)
