GQ on FELL

I want to use this quote to describe my art from now on....


From their 20 Graphic Novels You Should Read (After Watchmen):

Fell, Volume 1: Feral City
Written by Warren Ellis; Art by Ben Templesmith

Fans of the parts of TV’s Homicide that played like a hardboiled No Exit will dig this book. Eight mordantly funny short stories about Richard Fell, a misanthropic police detective keeping what passes for the peace in a bleak and bad-mojo-ridden municipality called Snowtown. It’s full of tense close-quarters showdowns in dimly lit spaces and illustrated in a gloomily gorgeous color palette that runs from toxic-sunset violet to busted-nose red.

Nice!

I won't even ask about seeing more of the book, as I don't want you to remove my gall bladder through my ass hole ;)

Megan said...

Please more... Pleasepleaseplease? I will let you eat my gall bladder, or whatever is more appetizing to you. Pleeaase!!! I... Need... More... Fell...

Templesmith said...

Megan, a gall bladder? In all honesty, you'd be better off offering that to Warren ( especially via his twitter) as I only except fresh baby meat. ( Or canned, if it's premium quality. )

I'm also hopeful there'll be more sometime. Trust me. :-)

Okay, so gall bladder was just a sorry response to Edward Kaye's comment. But I'm fresh out of baby meat! I'm certainly not so tender, but I am well marbled. My liver would surely be a fine pate. Could a gall bladder actually bribe Ellis? I know he prefers baby as well...
