The Gutters Omnibus Vol. 3!

gutter vol3

I got a big box in the mail the other day, containing The Absolute Ultimate Gutters Omnibus Volume 3 in all its hardcover and glossy, oversized page glory. So-so cover art . . . but otherwise a handsome book.

If you are not familiar with The Gutters, and you are a fan of comic books at all, shame on you. It is a series of single page comics that parody, criticize, and sometimes utterly savage, the comic book industry, its culture and subject matter. It’s sometimes funny, sometimes vicious, but always on target. Written by Ryan Sohmer, the art is done by guest artists making the styles vary wildly and entertainingly. You can read them on The Gutters website, and order prints of the ones you want to hang up on the wall. You can also order this volume and/or the previous two. You can even order the cover artwork as a print!

I was quite flattered when Ryan called me this summer and asked me if I’d do the cover art for Volume 3. It was a really fun project. The cover wraps around and is embossed in areas for a really cool look.

Despite the mediocre cover, I heartily recommend both the book and the comic.
