Kick-Ass Writes For Comic Book Resources

I thought this panel from the new issue of Hit-Girl merited a post of its own. Apparently Kick Ass, in his secret identity, writes for Comic Book Resources. About the history of superheroes and Vertigo’s paper stock…

So basically David Lizewski is Augie De Blieck.

I’m not sure why DC Entertainment bothers to put Vertigo Comics on paper. I’m sure it’s due to relatively low sales that they have to print them on the comics equivalent on toilet paper, but this cost-cutting has officially surpassed its usefulness.

Take their latest release, “Fairest” #1. It’s a spin-off from “Fables,” unsurprisingly, and features some wonderful art from Phil Jimenez. The coloring from Andrew Dalhouse is beautifully sculpted to fit the line work, adding shadows and dimension and drama. It’s obvious that a lot of effort and thought went into each page.

Then it’s printed up and 90% of it is lost. It’s like you’re looking through a fogged up lens to view the art in the book, and it’s oddly the kind where the lettering is the only un-muddy thing left on the page, simply because there’s no color involved.

Anything you want to tell us, Augie?
