“The second volume of the underground comix tribute Funny Aminals is a good bit tighter than the first edition. Not that much of it is really in the spirit of the sort of perverted funny animal comics that R.Crumb once did, but all of the pieces go up against one’s expectation of a standard F.A. comic while still operating in the same sort of visual language. The 8.5 x 11″ format helps a number of the pieces breathe and especially makes the many single-page illustrations stand out. It’s perhaps a bit bloated at 50 pages and probably could have done with fewer illustrations, but the overall design is attractive.”

Jess Smart Smiley

From Jess’ contribution to Funny Aminals 2.

Funny Aminals 2 contributor Jess Smart Smiley has a great interview up on Avoid the Future dot com. Here’s an excerpt:

Jess Smart Smiley is a real piece of work. Not only does he have the nerve to produce wonderful, engaging comics for readers’ worldwide, he then turns around and treats people with genuine friendliness and respect. I know, right? What a jerk.

In all seriousness, he’s a great guy, and we’ve been eager to interview him pretty much since we reviewed his awesome graphic novella A Map in the Dirt earlier in the year. Recently having his all-ages vampire story Upside Down snapped up by Top Shelf for release next Halloween, we thought now would be the perfect time to take advantage of his gentlemanly nature and collar him for a chat.

Read the rest here. Also be sure to check out his website here.
