Check Out Skottie Young’s ‘Cheap Junk,’ And No, That’s Not (Just) A Dirty Joke
I’m just going to put this out there – if you’re a fan of comic books and art in general and you don’t like Skottie Young’s work for some reason, then there is zero possibility of you and I ever being friends. Sorry folks, but that’s just a fact.
The artist of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” absolutely killed it in 2009 – that Spider-Man and Deadpool cover is easily one of my favorite pieces of art from the last decade – and with the finale of his daily gag strip “The Adventures of Bernard the World Destroyer” under his belt plus a future full of who-knows-what, it’s bound to be a great 2010 for him as well.
I’m not just gushing about the guy for no reason. Young has a new art book on sale called “Cheap Junk,” which is a slimmer 100-page version of his 300-page “Junk” collection. The book is only $25 and contains a third of the awesome art seen in the bigger, more expensive, previously released book. In other words, if you’re unfamiliar with his work or if you haven’t fully committed to his fan base, this is a good opportunity, folks.
But if you purchase the book and you still don’t like Young’s art? Welp, you can kiss my cheap junk. That’s no lie, G.I.!
