Killing When Killing Wasn't Cool

Cinnamon Jack's reflection?

When it comes to creepy comics, Al Columbia isn't only a member - he's the president. And in Fantagraphic's Zero Zero #4, Columbia produced a short story called "I Was Killing When Killing Wasn't Cool" that is so startling and nightmarish in its quiet elegance that it'll stick with you forever. I don't wanna give anything away, but that bastard I drew above was partially responsible for said startling nightmarishness. Columbia JUST released a new book, so GO FUCKING GET IT.

(I meant to post this on October 1. See? Catching up.)

JEEZ, yes. That one messed me up a little less than this one. Doooood, that new book is sick.
