Jeff Smith turns out to be quite the blogger. He not only posts a look at his cover for the second volume of Fantagraphics’ OUR GANG reprints, he also talks about Joe Kubert’s Tarzan comics
Joe Kubert’s lines are coarse and chunky like greasy charcoal, laid down in loose, easy gestures. The shapes and spaces they define are open, graceful and solid. If you are a Herriman fan, you will recognize the deliberate scratchiness that invites the eye to play – – and to fill in the missing information.
