The Infinite Corpse

The Infinite Corpse

The Trubble Club‘s new project is The Infinite Corpse which is a constantly expanding surreal comic stip starring Corpsey and drawn by cartoonists everywhere. It is expertly designed, the site functions well, it has already attracted the participation of a list of impressive talent, and is open for contributions from everyone. The one caveat is that it is edited by the Trubble Club to maintain quality control which is essential to make the whole effort worthwhile. The art quality of Trubble Club jam comics is what has always set them apart from your average jam comic, although both tend to feature plenty of mutant dongs.

A load of Meathaus contributors are in the mix. Checkitout.

EDIT: Being a bit loose in my language while writing this post, I wanted to clarify that although the Trubble Club’s own comics output is as filthy as it is funny, The Infinite Corpse is keeping content to a generally “PG-13″-equivalent rating so that it can be enjoyed by a wider audience than just cartoonists (i.e., degenerate perverts).

Ristaino is Dancing

Dancing for your cash, that is. I was backed up (work wise) and dropped the ball on posting about this when Andy Ristaino had emailed me about it… but anyways, looks like he’s doing pretty good. Check ‘er out. What am I talking about? Andy Ristaino is soliciting your funds to make a book collection of his comics over here. I don’t just post about any old kickstarter, but for an S.O.S. contributor? Well for sure.

EDIT: Are you seeing anything? Every other time this Vine embed is just showing blank space. Might relate to my blown-up-internet problems mentioned in the subsequent post above. I dunno. Maybe Vine’s embed technology just sucks.

EDIT: Andy sent over this image of the project, diggit:


Two Takes on Macbeth

Benjamin Marra's Macbeth

When I was talking to Benjamin Marra at the Locust Moon Comics Fest here in Philly a few months ago he mentioned this 10-page Macbeth adaptation he was doing for the Bavarian State Opera. Ben shared some images from his project on his blog, and a few are posted above. Our discussion brought back these intense memories of a comic book adaptation of Macbeth that I had read in 6th grade for school. In a coincidence, I reclaimed some old boxes from my parents basement and found the copy of that Macbeth comic recently. Below are a few scans from the comic book adaptation that I read in 6th grade, published in 1982 by Workman Publishing with illustrations by “Von” complete with generous air brushing and what appears to be marker and gouache. The color illustrations by Von below are primitive in some ways but share a good, brutal energy with Ben’s interpretation of Macbeth above, both fitting for the material.
