"The Art of Bone" and my latest "Lizard Brain " episode.

The other day I wrote about something I tend to call my "Lizard Brain Impulses." The hard-wired, gut level reaction I get when I first lay eyes on something--and a weird savage impulse surges up inside me saying "Must have! Must have NOW!"
Well, that just happened to me a few moments ago on Jeff Smith's Boneville site where I read about the new "Art of Bone" book. The preview that Dark Horse put together is oh-so cool too. My Lizard Brain is going to need LOTS of cash at Comicon this year. Lots and lots.

Ha! I had the same experience today, but it was for this new collection of the Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend. That Bone book does look good too, though!

I have to admit--until this momentI was not aware of this collection. But I'm a longtime admirer of Rick's Dream-work. In fact, I believe a Larry Marder character appeared in more than a few of the earlier pieces in the Rarebit books. Now that I know about it--I will eagerly look forward to this one too.

Oh, not Rick Veitch's Rarebit Fiends book - Winsor McCay's Rarebit Fiends! Confusing, I know. Sorry about that. A Rick Veitch collection would be pretty cool, too, though!

Ha ha! Now THAT is tooooo funny. I AM aware of the McCay book and YES I do want that too!
I think it is rather ironic that
"Rarebit" made me first think of Rick and not McCay--who-s work I have spent many an hour pouring over in old reprint books from the 70s (or whenever).
