Your Wednesday Sequence 40
In the latest installment on my Robot 6 column, I took on a highly atypical page by Eddie Campbell, which also happens to be one of the craziest pieces of abstract comics art in existence. As far as "scenes of people getting their guts slashed out" in sequential art go, this one's pretty high on the list. So hi-fi and lo-fi at the same time: flat, expressionless black and white printing has rarely looked so great. It's also interesting as a page that appears in an Alan Moore comic, because it's about as un-literary as the form can get. This is art-comix, kids. I've got a lot more to say about it, and I do it all right here. Go read!
