1. Got these Ted Jouflas books from that Fantagraphics sale. Interesting stuff for how it feels like connective tissue between separate traditions: It reminds me a lot of contemporary minicomics styles, working on the horror vacui tip while keeping narratives goofy, although the cover collages make me think about post-Sienkiewicz stylists like Dave McKean and the like. It’s the sort of thing where, reading it, you start to understand Al Columbia’s career path. the ways in which where we arrived where we are now from a point in the past. It’s messy, primitive, the sort of thing that I don’t think was really appreciated in its era and is somewhat forgotten now, even as it feels prescient.
