I have some Krays stuff done that's less crass, I'll have that up soon.
Anyway, Dave Sims new project, Judenhause (rhymes with Maus!) is here soon, and uh...I have this feeling that the Holocaust is like the Jewish version of 'the n word' like nobody else should talk about it? Except for Germans and Austrians, because at least they're owning up to their heritage? Like, what does Dave Sim know about being in a death camp? What does he have to say that hasn't been said by Spieglman or Wiesel? (or many others)
So, it's like the worst possible kind of bid for respectability after becoming comic's laughing-stock for his views on women, you know? But it made Neil Gaiman cry (I think?) and he's Jewish so maybe it has some merit. Not that I'm going to read it to find out.

Always liked S. Clay Wilson. His art and his philosophy of ' you can draw whatever you want.' So that's what this comic I'm working on is, intentionally shallow exploitation. Misappropriation (which I put on hold after some advice from a former teacher) and the Krays comic had some sorta attempts at deepness and shit, but not here.
