Bob Burden’s crazed yet wise comics and art are truly sui generis. The creator of The Flaming Carrot and The Mystery Men was way ahead of his time with the goofy superhero thing. And now he’s back to Kickstarter with THRILLING VISIONS 2 Sketchbook which covers Flaming Carrot’s early years, with a Dave Stevens cover. For the diehard 80s comics fans, one reward is a Teenage Mutant ninja Turtles/Cerebus/Flaming Carrot poster signed by Kevin Eastman, Dave Sim and Burden. It’s just like being there. And if you weren’t here are the 18 oddest, wildest, most disturbing drawings from the book.
