Just in time to debut at the San Diego Comic Con, Titmouse Inc. (the animation studio behind Metalocalypse and Black Panther, among others) has just published one of the best comic anthology’s I’ve ever seen. Titmouse producer Ben Kalina sent us some information:
We’ve recently put together a new project called: “Titmouse: Volume 1”. It is not a cartoon. It is also not a comic book, not a magazine, and it’s not a book–it’s a MOOK, a magazine-book. Like Sushi, MOOK is an addictive Japanese concept that will take the world by storm. It also goes great with saké, with a significantly lower risk of succumbing to the paralyzing effects of mercury poisoning.
We have assembled a team of weirdo artist-types to create this 100 page hardcover anthology and printed it in full color on fancy paper featuring comic strips, paintings, and interviews from some of the art world’s most interesting individuals. It’s 1/3 Heavy Metal, 1/3 Mad Magazine, 1/3 Juxtapose, and 1/3 Ralph Bakshi film-on-paper, fancy paper.
