Five days a week, Jonathan Case comes into Periscope, pulls out a gigantic sheet of 300 series bristol, puts his head down and gets to work drawing a comic you’ve never heard of. A lucky few have acquired the very limited editions he’s self-published of the three chapters, but for the most part, he’s been laboring in total obscurity.
I think it’s time for this obscurity to end. Go and read the first chapter of Sea Freak, “the tale of an atomic sea mutant in 1962 with a hunger for poetry and a taste for human flesh.” The story is creepy and funny and compelling, and the art is drop-dead gorgeous. See if you don’t find yourself wondering, as we all have here at Periscope, how the hell can a guy’s very first work be this insanely good?
