Rick Altergott's RAISEN PIE and DOOFUS

What he said...

Though I think Johnny Ryan is only good because everyone else is wussing out these days. I don't think he'll be remembered like the other guys. And I still need to check out the Altergott stuff.

Start with Doofus for the Altergott stuff, the Raisen Pie's are a split comic with his wife...and her half sucks.

Where to start with the Wally Wood? Besides the EC stuff.

I just really love Wally's artwork, I'm not really that familiar with published stuff though. I'm getting back into making and reading comics again, I need something to distract me from this damn music obsession!

I think A.Y.C. comix have been pretty whack after #6. Johnny R. is now drawing comix for MAD so maybe he hasn't been giving his all for his own series. But I think Johnny R. is unmatched for patently offensive comix before he moved on to bigger and better things.

i haven't bought any single issues in 20+ years but i do buy a lot of the dc archives & marvel masterworks (HC reprints of 1950s-60s stuff). because i'm a nerd.

of recent stuff, "the goon" (dark horse) is an entertaining read. so is "the losers" and "y: the last man" (both vertigo), and "sleeper" and "ex machina" (both dc/wildstorm).
