In the world of Jason Clarke’s Black & Blue, nobody is having a good time, and yet somehow, in a Tarantino-esque fashion, he is able to create a comic that is very enjoyable to read. After a bit of news about one of Chris Grine’s properties being set for a big-screen turn, we delve into the seedy underworld that surrounds both humans and robots alike, and try to figure out just why this girl’s disembodied head is so darned special.
Chris Grine is the creator behind the quirky adventures Chickenhare and Time Shifters. His latest work, a graphic novel of the young adult adventure series, Animorphs, has brought him a new perspective on working with a known property, dealing with the fandom of that universe, and coming to grips with possibly working on too many things at once. Chris talked with Jason about all of this and more, including his melancholy time at summer camp and why the story of Time Shifters is an incredibly personal one for him.
This post is ostensibly about the Original Art Contest that Chris Grine is running to help drive traffic to his most excellent webcomic, Chickenhare, but really, if you aren’t already assisting in this effort, you’re missing out on one of the most unique, well-crafted stories I’ve read in years.
The deets, courtesy of Chris himself:
Post a blurb on your site along with a sample page from Chickenhare. Help spread the good word to the masses.
The site that drives the most traffic to Chickenhare.com will get a personalized 5Ã—7 original Inked and signed artwork with the 2-3 characters from the world of Chickenhare of your choosing. Sound fair?
When does the contest start? NOW!
When does it end? SEPTEMBER 15th at 11:59 PM central time
*Please email me with a link to the post so I can keep track of the websites in the running.
We’re not saying this is what will happen to you if you don’t read Chickenhare… but wouldn’t you rather be safe than sorry?
