Afrodisiac Launch Party

I was some good old fashioned funkadelic fun at the Toonseum last night. We celebrated the launch of Afrodisiac's hard cover edition with creators Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca. It's hard to believe this much grooviness came from a couple of white dudes but there they were with a throng of fans. Plus Street Angel copies were there too with this rare chance to have the creators sign them.

I'm trying to talk Jim into making an appearance at the CGS Supershow. We'll see if that works out... Meanwhile, listen to the CGS interview with Jim.

The Toonseum is focused on bringing the spotlight to local independent creators.

Very nice vid ! It looks like a Tarantino movie ! :D

Now I'm telling, Quentin should write a comic ! (: o

I like this 70's atmosphere, we could wait for Jim Kelly or Pam Grier come out from the screen....

Anyway, this Afrodisiac comic seem quite good ! I'll try to check if it has published in France, never heard about it. I especcially enjoy the classic way of inking and the block spaces of colouring.... it's nice to see artists can still use this technique nowadays and be published as well as those who use more FX....
