ANGEL AND THE APE #1 by Scott Faulkner
Scott Faulkner is a great fan of pinup illustration and the long tradition of "good girl" art in comics. As a member of Seattle's Bureau of Drawers comic collective, he does his best to uphold those traditions and would like to see more fun come back to super-hero comics. Angel and the Ape have already been through a couple of reboots - both in the 90s (where it was awkwardly crammed into DC continuity), and in the 00s (where it was dredged through Vertigo sensibilities) - but neither attempt matched the goofy appeal of the original, or the wonderful artwork of Bob Oksner.
More of Scott's artwork can be seen at Vinylsaurus.com.
Angel and the Ape were created by E.Nelson Bridwell and Bob Oksner. Read more...
