The gloriously weird world of Seth Fisher

Seth Fisher is one of those artists whose work I will buy no matter who wrote it or what the story is about. He was that brilliant.

Case in point. In this comic you get ... (and you can click them to get even more detail) ...

Wild (and occasionally three-dimensional) sound effects ...

Wonder Woman, Bo Peep, and the Pope grooving in a bar ...

Escher-like hotels ...

Flying heads with erasers on top of them ...

Evil heads spearing our hero with its nose ...

Samurai eggs ...

Octopus (and other kinds of) soldiers ...

A samurai octopus ...

And, of course, general weird shit ...

The comic, in case you're wondering, is Willworld, the Green Lantern graphic novel from 2001. Given that it's a Hal Jordan story written by J. M. DeMatteis, you can pretty much anticipate a lot of what's going to happen, but Fisher elevates it to utter brilliance. It's a good book made great by the art.

Fisher's death is still a strange event that I don't feel I can comment on, but it's not controversial to say that the comics world lost one of the most interesting artists ever. If you see the name "Seth Fisher" on a comic, buy it. It will not disappoint at all.
