So… What can one say about “Our Love Is Real” that isn’t expressed in the above page?
I read the book… and I get the book… but I have to say, I don’t get the book.
Let me explain that by saying that I simply think that the message and the point of this book gets lost in the absolute weirdness. But then again, maybe that’s the point, to take things to a level of strangeness that is so far out there it makes you question things.
I love it when comics have a message. I think that comics are one of the most expressive forms of entertainment out there and can do things and go places that no other medium can. But there is a point where the message itself gets lost amongst all the other stuff, and I fear that “Our Love Is Real” does just that.
At any rate though, it’s certainly getting people talking and that’s never a bad thing!
Today’s page comes to us by mainstay helluva guy Richard Clark:
Born in a crossfire hurricane (actually Cleveland, OH), Richard P. Clark’s illustration career began in 1993 while still an undergraduate at The Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then, he’s worked for a wildly varied list of clients in several industries-among them HBO, Playboy, The Wall Street Journal and Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s been finding work again in the Comic Industry, including a recent job for Dark Horse providing finishes over Darick Robertson’s breakdowns for The Guild-Vork comic. He’s hoping this recent turn into the comic lane sticks as there are literally scores of stories he’d like to unleash on the world. Mr. Clark currently resides in Upstate NY after a 10-year tour of duty in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and a goofy dog named Barnaby.
See you here Friday and I love you all. No matter sex, race or species.
