All you had to do was tell me it reminds you of The Pit and I was sold, haha.
I keep forgetting to whom I'm talking!
I adore Sam Keith, but I have never been a strong follower of comics. It's not that I don't like them, I just don't have enough time in the day to seek them out, what with my rabid obsession of film, music, and literature. But I caught the MTV show and decided to take a look at The Maxx
comics. I was so intrigued by the philosophical elements of his story that I kept reading even as the series became quite sloppy and contrived. A friend of mine passed along a copy of Zero Girl
and I was hooked. I later discovered the wonders of Sandman
, since he helped kick that off. Now I mostly read Vertigo series that get republished as trade papers. Things like Transmetropolitan
. My ex keeps up to date with Keith's work, and she was the one that turned me on to the Magic Trout stuff.
The story arches for the other Magic Trout minis seem really intriguing. I wish he was better with deadlines. Haha. I'm keeping my eyes open for the film release of Ojo
, which seems like it will be a nightmare to locate. I'll let you know if I get a hold of it.
