Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
British cartoonist Jamie Smart launched a new webcomic yesterday, Corporate Skull, which he describes as “My new webcomic about learning the skills of violence, profanity, and alcoholism in the workplace.” With just a cover image and a handful of pages up, the comic is already off to a strong start, chronicling the existential despair of a low-level corporate grunt, spurred on by furry porn and a YouTube video of a trapped cat. While Corporate Skull is definitely an adult comic, Smart has considerable range. He currently draws Desperate Dan for the British kids’ comic Dandy, and also is the creator of Space Raoul, Count von Poo, and a host of other wacky kid-friendly creations as well as some more adult comics.
