Indie Comics Spotlight: RASL #11

Next week I’ll go back to showcasing some of the indie comics I grew up on in the 80s, but let’s warp up this week with a look at another contemporary book:

RASL #11 is by the world famous Jeff Smith (a fellow Columbusite!), self-published through his Cartoon Books.

It’s definitely a different beast than Jeff’s other series, Bone. The storyline is mature, the art a little looser, and the pacing a bit slower. I’m digging the book an awful lot…when it manages to come out. As for his cover design, it’s the kind of thing a guy can do with a creator-owned property. No way you’d get away with having your logo take up 1/2 of the cover on a corporate book.
