Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
At the risk of going overboard on posts about DC Comics’ Wednesday Comics miniseries, I’m compelled to link to these two latest samples — revealed this morning — because they’re just stunning: Metamorpho, by Neil Gaiman and Michael Allred, and Kamandi, by Dave Gibbons and Ryan Sook.
While I’m a fan of all four creators, I give special attention to that Kamandi page which, with its art, coloring and lettering, evokes Hal Foster’s classic Prince Valiant. That’s especially appropriate for a title designed to mimic the Sunday comics page.
The Jack Kirby credit at the bottom of the page is a nice touch, too.
