Before talking about Guernica, I want to point you all in the direction of something entirely awesome. Our good friend, the ever gentlemanly Trevor Kellogg of Knights of Nine to Five, is in the process of creating a special print to raise more money for Japan. I’m getting one for myself, because it’s way cool looking, and I heartily recommend everybody out there to do the same!
On to today’s comic! This is probably the coolest thing Geoff has ever asked me to draw in a script. The panel description was basically “Picasso has rendered the abyss as a gigantic Guernica, and it is attacking Joseph Campbell with tentacles, and he is light sabering a path through them” which is just enchanting on so many levels. Like we said back in the day, Picasso phoned A Lot of shit in, but every once in a while, when he could ground his artistic instincts in an idea beyond a dick joke, he could pull off some monumental stuff, and Guernica is one such stuff. Here’s the original, which features less tentacles and fifth dimension infused eyes:

That there’s a painting, with form and meaning meeting each other squarely on even ground, and amplifying each other mightily in the process.
