Guest Strip – KC Green
The second guest strip comes from aaaaargh KC GREEN!
There’s no way I need to explain who KC is. Y’all know the guy behind a hundred things like Horribleville, Gunshow, a big bunch of Custom Comics, Hate Song and mind boggling amount of other things. I just linked to them in case you aren’t reading them right now. Right now!!
Specifically, I’m going to place right here, right over here under this text here, a link to the very first Horribleville. Are you ready? Get ready. I’ll wait. Okay, here we go now GET YOUR CLICKERS GOING! (It’s okay, you can open it in another window).
If you had told me before Horribleville that someone would do a series about having trouble with making comics, and that it would be The Best Thing, I would have laughed and laughed and laughed.
But KC makes it work by starting out as a guy with a staggering talent and passion for comics and humour and then constantly pushing himself. On top of that, he’s honest about his problems and insecurities and that is a big reason why his comics hit the right spot. His comics cut right through the toughest bullshit like it was marshmallow.
KC is something quite special. He doesn’t need to try (though he does, he works so hard) to produce comics as good as he does because it comes from everything that he is naturally. I suppose I mean… that his life has led him in every way to having all the skills to be a natural at great cartooning – it’s who he is, and that’s a beautiful and none-too-common thing. But really, part of that is that he works and works and works.
I think it’s important people read his stuff because it kicks us right up the butt and tells us to be better. He sets all sorts of new bars for cartooning, whether you’re writing them or reading them. Also, he’s a great guy.
