Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Tim Vigil, and the issue is Faust: Love of the Damned #12, which was published by Rebel Studios and is cover dated October 2001. Enjoy! (Once again, I have to break out the Not Safe For Work Warning. Seriously, people, it’s as bad or worse as two days ago. Don’t get fired!)

Year of the Artist, Day 272: Tim Vigil, Part 1 – Faust: Love of the Damned #1

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Tim Vigil, and the issue is Faust: Love of the Damned #1, which was published by Northstar and is cover dated 1989 (although my copy is the reprint from Rebel Studios, which came out in 1991, and Wikipedia has a cover date of this issue as November 1987, so take that as you like). Enjoy! (And seriously, if you’ve never heard of Faust, I can’t stress enough that there’s some Not Safe For Work stuff in this post. I’m really serious, here! I mean, it’s probably Not Even Safe For Home, depending on who might be looking over your shoulder. Okay? Okay.)

What I bought – 9 January 2013

She said, “In every age, there must be truths people can’t fight – whether or not they want to, whether or not they will go on being truths in the future. We live in the truth of what Freud discovered. Whether or not we like it. However we’ve modified it. We aren’t really free to suppose – to imagine – he could possibly have been wrong about human nature. In particulars, surely – but not in the large plan –” (A. S. Byatt, from Possession)

Pills solve everything! Batman sez: Why won't DC leave the damned Joker out of my comics for a few furshlugginer years?!?!? Avert your eyes!!! Frazer Irving is a crazy dude, man Dude should take better care of his cape Heart transplants don't work that way Drama! This won't end well It's BACK! Probably only 90 per cent pure awesome, but still pretty good Nice of this to finally show up! More cheap comics from Valiant! Another one bites the dust More American history than you can shake a stick at! Yeah, it's a book about fishing - wanna make something out of it? Does anything in this book exist anymore?  What's the point? Yeah, I'll give this a look ...

What I bought – 31 October 2012

His father smiled thinly. “Perhaps not for a while. But in the end, someone always has to have his or her neck popped, as you so quaintly put it. The people demand it. Sooner or later, if there isn’t a turncoat, the people make one.” (Stephen King, from The Gunslinger)

Really, Marvel? So that's what happened to Elvis! Oh, it's here all right! So spooooooky! Well, isn't that unpleasant I don't know why they're under water, honestly It will make you feel better! 'Did someone put a Kick Me sign on my back?' Um, what? Orson ANGRY! Big fake star! Yet another one to dazzle me! Crossover!

Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines, Day 305: Faust: Love of the Damned #10 (totally and completely not safe for work – I’m really not kidding here, people!)

Every day this year, I will be examining the first pages of random comics. This month I will be showing pages that are either scary or are part of “scary” issues (as scary as a comic can be, of course), because it’s October! Today’s page is from Faust #10, which was published by Rebel Studios and is cover dated 1993. Enjoy! (And if you’re seeing this with the cut still intact, I want to warn you once again – this is really, really, REALLY not safe for work. Don’t say you weren’t warned!) (By way, this is SO not safe for work I’m not even showing it right after the cut in case some people can’t read all these warnings – I’ve put up some buffers before you get to the page in the form of puppy and kitten .gifs, stolen from here and here)
