Check it out, Jason Murphy and Katie Ridley Murphy sent Meathaus a package with Me Nut Nut Nut #0, a sexy limited edition print, and a note that reads:
“hey meat! check out our new small press/shop STiLLLiFE! OK? ok. Stillife is run by me, Jason Murphy, and my wife Katie Ridley Murphy!
Well all right Jason and Katie, thanks much for these items! I love me some Me Nut Nut Nut even if the issue numbers are counting backwards. This must be the secret origin issue. Actually it is more really funny and inventive one panel situations. And now I am absolutely, positively certain that Jason Murphy is scared shitless of spiders. See previous posts about Jason, and get into STiLLLiFE (for real if you’re in Atlanta) and Jason’s tumblr and Katie’s website.
Hey yourself, guys making neat stuff. And thanks! Jason’s first two issues of Juvenitive focus on some kids horsing around outside on bikes, finding bugs, being in a fort, breaking some stuff, not being aware of the consequences of their actions, puking, running from snakes, crying, feeling guilty and so on. Check out more on Jason’s Tumblr and buys comics and art here, and see previous letters with his work here and here.
Gabriel Corbera’s weird, balding, action/business-man has to deal with a lot of vampire-zombie-mutants in a world of benches, empty rooms, and drab office buildings.
Adam Buttrick’s pleasurably cartooned characters psychotically maintain their one expression each while judging, processing and executing each other.
Read a lot of Jason Murphy’s work on his site as well as this book and you will enjoy picking up on themes of spiders, spider nightmares, spider eggs, and in this case, maybe spider bites and allergic pustules. Also then some character snorts this kid and his mom’s house into its nose and there are some Spanish speaking creatures there, so brush up on your español, amigos.
Finally, dig into these past packages from the SpaceFace here, here and here!
Jason Murphy sent Meathaus a copy of Me Nut Nut Nut #1 which is a wild collection of his drawings of situations and one-pager comics about these different contorted people who are often trying to read and do things but are sometimes scared and sometimes being menaced by giant spiders. Thanks Jason! See more of Jason’s drawings on his website.
