Not what I would’ve expected Dave Sim’s new comic to be. Or, as one of the promo posters puts it:
But it also makes sense–all the photorealist stuff in Latter Days, and the stuff he’s been writing recently about his fascination with Alex Raymond, Stan Drake, et al., suggests that this is exactly the kind of comic he’s going to enjoy drawing. (Why he uses “photorealism” instead of “photorealist” as an adjective I have no idea, but I’m sure he’s thought it out. Actually, of all the potential Dave Sim manifestos I could read, Why Photorealism Is The Best Kind of Cartooning is easily #1.) And those pages behind him in the author-promo photos look fantastic. I’m totally there.
