It's a maaaaaad world
I am playing around with a large scale strip that I hope to serialize in the Hive anthology. It is called "The Book of Violence" and if it comes out the way I see it, it will be pretty crazy. I have been thinking a lot lately (mostly since I had a kid, and now with another on the way) about the culture of violence we live in. Not only do we deal with crime, war and such but we revel in violent video games, movies, comics, etc. I have been thinking about the phrase, "blessed are the peace makers" and wondering about my roll in that as well. So, the strip is all about violence in it's many forms. I hope to make it so over the top as to make it seem as ridiculous as it is (especially for those who use it for their own ends). It is hard to be a peace maker because we are born into this culture. I hope it will be fun. Fun? Maybe it could be put in a book some time.
