No Hope #4

[48pages, B&W, magazine size, 
deanjason143@aol.com --- Jason Dean, 5 St. Dials Road, Old Cwmbran, Cwmbran, Gwent NP44 3AN UK  ]
'Crude, offensive, puerile, unfunny, unoriginal, piece of crap' it says on the cover. If you ask me though, I think Jason's just being modest, and perhaps covering his arse against critics who might object to depictions of well-loved children's characters sporting gigantic cocks.
Jason's art is awesome and very high quality. He is also a cross-hatching machine, although when I mentioned this to him he admitted that it has become somewhat of a handicap since it results in him taking forever to finish anything.
Every page in here looks as though it took a month or two to finish, and while a handful of the gag pages felt a bit light and lacking punch (I felt the strength of the art deserved more) there's some awesome stuff in here, highlights of which include 'I Hate Daniel Butler', an intense and brutally autobiographical 11-page strip, and a 10-page piece on the blood-spattered career of horror actor Freddy Valentine. This is a text piece loaded with terrific illustrations of Valentine's movie posters including The Desires of Unearthly Things (1960) and The Darkness of Shadows (1959). And not only is there a wonderful Mr. Penis strip (see above) but a Mr. Penis board game! 'Mr Penis is going to Hollywood to become a performer in the adult movie industry. Each player pretends he is Mr. Penis. The first person to arrive in Hollywood is the winner. Good luck!'

This looks phenomenal! How much is an issue? And does he take paypal? (I guess I should be asking him these questions!)

Re: Jason's an incredible draughtsman
"...and not bore us with his old grudges." You mean "me", not "us". It didn't bore me. And I think an artist is absolutely better off getting their grudges out with art than by real life vengeance. Real life vengeance often lands one in a place with limited access to art materials. And freedom.
