Cartoonist Kayfabe: Watchmen issue #2

 The Cartoonist Kayfabe guys, Jim Rugg & Ed Piskor, take a dive into issue two of Watchmen, discovering some cool details I hadn't notice before --- in particular, at around the 20-minute mark, a slight variation in word balloons depending on the time period (the early Minute Men meeting where they are smooth and round compared with the 70s, as Nite Owl & Comedian work to suppress the riots and we see word balloons that have more jagged edging). It's fascinating and well worth your time. Check it out!

Cartoonist Kayfabe takes on WATCHMEN!

 If you're a fan of comics and comics process, then you're a fan of the Cartoonist Kayfabe channel on youtube, or as a podcast. Jim Rugg (Street Angel, Octobriana) and Ed Piskor (X-Men: Grand Design, Hip Hop Family Tree) examine, ruminate, and dissect classic comics, and they're now taking on WATCHMEN. They plan to do one issue per month, and the issue one discussion is now available. 

I'm really looking forward to the rest of this series. Check it out!
