I donated the original drawing from my Oily Comics print to CAKE Frame, a live auction to raise money for the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo. They’re auctioning off a whole bunch of stuff, and I believe the bidding starts at just 30 dollars. It’s this Sunday, and all the information is right here.
Me Nut Nut Nut #2
By Jason Murphy
Space Face Books
Jason Murphy’s silent and hapless Booger can’t catch a break in his cluttered life. His anonymous female partner, however, more than makes up for his shortcomings by always being there with much needed TLC. Murphy’s comic strikes at the heart of what we truly want out of this fleeting existence: just to have someone hold us, dry our eyes, and, at times, apply a much needed band-aid.
MNNN's sweet storytelling is only complimented more so by its drawings. Visually echoing Guston's later paintings and Svankmajer's crowded Darkness/Light/Darkness, Murphy successfully gives the reader an optimistic way to contemplate and handle life’s endless annoyances. Booger may not have the best of luck, but he always seems to take his lumps in stride. Awesome.
