Marvelman by Ed Piskor – a homage to Just-Ice, Back to the Old School album cover:

Before X-Men: Grand Design I hooked up with Marvel to do some Hip Hop variant covers. I did 3 but my best one never surfaced until now. If I ever worked in a collaboration Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman would be at the top of my list. Plus, Just-Ice rules!’

Kyle Baker… oh, Kyle Baker, one of my all-time favourite writer/artists, and up there amongst the comedy greats of comics.

The Cowboy Wally Show, Why I Hate Saturn, I Die At Midnight, The Bakers, King David, Plastic Man… so many wonderful things. But here, just to end things with this week, two amazing sequences of comedic comics from one of his less well-known works, You Are Here.

The big problem with Baker’s work is how beautifully, brilliantly, cleverly he puts together a comedic work, with the gags built up over the entire work, the groundwork leading to a payoff pages and pages later.

But here, just a little of what makes him so damn good.

And then, later on in You Are Here… and Noel’s car has run out of gas…
