Foraging For Comics: The Image May Solicits

written & illustrated by JIM MAHFOOD cover by JIM MAHFOOD & JOSE GARIBALDI
Slug (from the group Atmosphere) and Murs (from Living Legends) are two of the hottest rappers in the underground hip hop scene today. FELT is a one-shot comic that acts as a visual interpretation of their new collaborative album under the same name. But you don't have to buy the new album to dig this book! Popular cartoonist JIM MAHFOOD (CLERKS, STUPID COMICS) turns tunes from the new record into funny and clever comic strips with topics ranging from bar fights, to break-ups, to making art, to dirty girls! This is a truly interesting and unique comics experience sure to please music and non-music fans alike.

Okay, that sounds pretty neat. Nothing like media-cross-pollination.

The time of the old-guard newspaper comic strip has come to an end. It's time for an all-new, all-different comic strip to bring the funny back to the funny pages. No cynicism, no lasagna and no jokes about fitting into bathing suits. PvP is here to kick the funny pages straight in the groin. This 16-page primer is ONLY 50¢ and a perfect opportunity to try PvP for the first time. PvP is ™ and © Scott R. Kurtz, 2005. All Rights Reserved.

Ha. Gotta love that Giant-Size X-Men homage cover.

McFARLANE'S MONSTERS 4: TWISTED FAIRY TALES McFarlane Toys Item: 41100 The fourth edition of the infamous McFarlane's Monsters series is a line of six figures based on classic fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters, each evolved in the McFarlane style. These fairy tales definitely aren't for children. The item ships 12 per case. May 2005 Gretel Hansel Peter Pumpkin Eater Little Miss Muffet Humpty Dumpty Red Riding Hood

You'll note that both Gretel and Red Riding Hood are dominatrices. Todd, is there something you'd like to share with us? Or maybe with Mrs. McFarlane?

That's all this month.
