New cartoonist alert: Shia LaBeouf

A new self-publisher showed up at C2E2: Campaign Comics and creator Shia LaBeouf. He’s keeping it low key in artist alley. “We’re just here to have fun,” he said while signing his OGN.

Everyone wants to be in comics.



  1. Chris Hero says

    I saw his books at Jim Hanley’s in Manhattan. It’s cool he’s self-publishing them.

  2. says

    Agree. It’s fantastic when he (or anyone for that matter) gets out there to make and promote their own comics. Support comic creators!

  3. horatio weisfeld says

    Anybody remember the brutal, hilarious GREASER COMICS #1 (circa 1970 or so)? My favorite (non-Crumb) underground comic ever – written and drawn by Leonardo DiCaprio’s dad (or so they say).

    just flipped through two of his books earlier this afternoon.
    havent made up my mind on them yet.

  5. RegularSyzedMike says

    Anyone have a link to dude’s book or art? Or at least a name of his book(s) so I can look for them? As much as he was in Crystal Skulls I’m still interested to see what he’s doing.

  6. Matthew Southworth says

    Every comment so far is supportive and positive, totally unlike the barrage of negative shit I expected!

    Faith in humanity hereby restored!

  7. says

    His two books (so far) are LETS FUCKING PARTY and CYNICAL.

    I think the print versions look much better than the online samples.


  8. says

    I hope he releases some of his stuff too. I want to know if he’s any good at it. Blink and you might pass him by. Maybe he will be at San Diego Comic-Con 2012.

  9. Rob J. says

    I can’t help but remember the otherwise useless, sounds-Aprocryphal-but-it’s-allegedly-not factoid that a pre-Transformers Megan Fox tried to break into comics, going so far as to show her samples to Top Cow at Comic-Con one year. She and that Shia guy should collaborate on something. Maybe a biography of Michael Bay? A Transformers comic for IDW? A Fathom miniseries?

    PS: I don’t know if I’m kidding or not.

    Shia’s comic is available at Star Clipper in St. Louis, MO, as well. I saw it and thought it looked much stranger than I imagined it could be, but I haven’t actually read it. I do think it’s pretty cool that he’s so DIY about the whole process, though.

    FYI – there was absolutely ZERO publicity about this on C2E2’s part. The word is that he signed up and the folks at Reed didn’t think it was actually him.

    1. Good for him. He did it without exploiting his name.
    2. I’m still amazed that no-one pounced on him and had him do a autograph session.
