HEY! KIDS! COMICS! : Bryan Talbot’s The Naked Artist : August 14th, 20008


This is not a comic, but cartoonist Bryan Talbot has put his entire book The Naked Artist: Comic Book Legends online for free. I haven’t read it, but it sounds great from the description, and I’ve enjoyed everything else I have read by Talbot. Click the above image to go see it. Here’s the description from the site:

The book you’ve all been waiting for! COMIC BOOK LEGENDS is an outrageous collection of the unreported exploits of comic creators, the stories only usually told late at night between the hallowed walls of convention pro bars! EISNER AWARD WINNER Bryan Talbot brings you the anecdotes, funny, shocking and downright weird, told about your favorite comic writers and artists, from Simon Bisley to Neil Gaiman, from Grant Morrison to Jeff Smith!

“Heroes! Villains! Action! Suspense! Humor! Alcohol!” — Dave Gibbons

“This book will do nothing to alter the general public’s perception that many of those working in and around the comics medium have not merely been touched by the gods but have been comprehensively groped by them.” — David Lloyd

“Write whatever the hell you like and I’ll swear I’ve said it!” — Will Eisner
