I make no secret of the fact I love Dustin Nguyen's work and Jeff Lemire has a good track record, and they are working together on a series which looks very promising, and has a preview up at Comics Alliance, where Nguyen's inkwash style is being pointed in a new direction; sci-Fi.

Our hero is Tim and his pet Bandit (named, I'm going to guess, after Jonny Quest's dog.)

You say favorite artist and I think of two people. If figured I'd just pick one for this post. It was hard, actually, because the first (and very obvious) George Perez has a very different style from the person I picked, Dustin Nguyen, but that just goes to show how great it is to have different artists!

I'm terrible at talking about art, but what I love about DN is his art always seems so full of movement--and fun movement. Like no matter what's going on there's a sense of "Whooosh!" which is one of the main appeals of being a superhero I imagine.

This should surprise no one who's familiar with my posts in this community, nor, really, anyone who pays attention to my username.

I. Love. The. Joker. Always have, probably always will.

Now, I'm fully aware of the "Batman/the police/some civilian should totally kill this asshole Villain Sue!" sentiment on many corners of the Internet, and I can understand them. Hell, in some ways, I emphasize with them. For the last ten or fifteen years, the man who once proudly called himself the Clown Prince of Crime has been headed down a pretty steep slide into mindless, humorless violence (interspersed with those obnoxious events that shove themselves in our faces and scream "SEE! SEE? THE JOKER IS BATMAN'S #1 VILLAIN AGAIN! HE'S NO LAUGHING MATTER NOW, BABY!"), and if anything, the DCnU and Scott Snyder have only exacerbated it.

And yet... and yet, no matter how low his low points get, they can never quite cancel out the highs. Perhaps those high points will never return, but even if that's so, he's already got plenty under his belt for us to peruse at our leisure.

Besides, I just can't hate a face like this.
