Jim Mahfood’s ‘Grrl Scouts’ Return For ‘Magic Socks’ At Image

grrlscouts_featured

Jim Mahfood is returning to comics, and specifically to his creator-owned Grrl Scouts, for a new series at Image called Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks. Mahfood made a splash in comics back in the late '90s, with a very graffiti-inspired style of cartooning that was entirely unlike anything we were used to seeing in comics at the time. He hit it big drawing Clerks comics for Kevin Smith, and then went on to draw some fun Spider-Man stuff for Marvel, as well as publishing previous volumes of Grrl Scouts at Oni Press.

‘Miami Vice Remix’ #3 Features Zombies On Bath Salts, Disco Psychosis, And The Godfather Of Soul [Preview]

Miami Vice Remix, art by Jim Mahfood

So you remember a while back when we told you how there was a Miami Vice comic coming out by Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood, and that it was probably going to be one of the weirdest things on the stands? Yeah. Turns out we were right, except that it's way weirder than I think any of us actually expected it to be.

Instead of stylishly solving crimes in pastel blazers, Casey and Mahfood's take on Crocket and Tubbs has found them caught up in a nefarious plot to flood the streets of Miami with a new designer drug that turns people into shambling zombies. It's called Miami Bath Salts, and in next week's issue, Tubbs himself has been hit with a dose and sent spiraling into disco psychosis. And yes: those are all words used within this comic.

Joe Casey And Jim Mahfood Are Doing A ‘Miami Vice’ Comic Book And It Looks Bonkers

Miami00

Licensed comics are a strange beast, especially when they're adapting movies or shows that never had anything at all to do with comics. I mean, there was a Scarface comic with a pretty great creative team a few years ago that was based on the idea that Tony Montana survived the end of the movie, which, just in case you haven't seen it, is both extremely improbable and also contrary to the entire point of the film.

Sometimes, though, you get something that sounds so awesome that it's hard to believe that it's really happening.

Which brings me to the fact that Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood are doing a Miami Vice comic.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Deadwood, Maleficent, Game of Thrones, Samurai Jack, Nausicaa And More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Jim Mahfood & Lisa Hanawalt Create Work For Audi’s Crowd-Sourced Live Art Experience [Video]

Untitled-1

 

"Uncompromised" is the theme Audi has attached to its new A3 vehicle. Sure, it's the kind of lofty, poetic thing you'd expect a luxury car manufacturer to say about its latest model, but when it comes to expressing that theme in appropriately uncompromising ways, you have to hand it to Audi, who put on quite the show last week in an event that gathered eclectic talents from all around the creative arts for an interactive, live art installation fueled by crowd-sourced stories of perseverance, hard work and success.

As part of the event, comic book artists and illustrators Jim Mahfood (Everybody Loves Tank Girl, D.I.S.CO. Destroyer) and Lisa Hanawalt (My Dumb Dirty Eyes) were on hand to interpret tweets submitted with the hashtag #paidmydues into original pieces of art -- live and on site. Fans of both artists would agree their work reflects a truly uncompromising vision of personal expression, and it was cool to see such wildly different talents represent comics and the illustrative arts alongside similarly idiosyncratic luminaries from across the creative spectrum.

Jim Mahfood & Joe Casey’s ‘D.I.S.C.O. Destroyer’ Animation Is Sexy, Funky, Insane [Video]

Untitled-2

With a name as audacious as D.I.S.CO. Destroyer you've really got to deliver the kind of insanity and style conjured up by that combination of letters. Rest assured that cartoonist and illustrator Jim Mahfood, comics and animation writer Joe Casey and film producer Scott Mosier have turned in something that lives up the title, a beautifully designed, senses-assaulting animated project for MTV"s revival of the great Liquid Television about a hot-rodding rocker and his race against Heaven and Hell for the fate of mankind.

Martin And Mahfood’s ‘Everybody Loves Tank Girl': Beautiful Art, Narrative Dissonance

tankgirltrade-1363286054

Everybody Loves Tank Girl is the new Tank Girl book collecting the recent issues drawn by Jim Mahfood and written by Tank Girl co-creator Alan C. Martin. Before getting into things too thoroughly, let's briefly unpack the term "the new Tank Girl," because that's quickly becoming not just a distinction referring to the passage of time, but a term that now encompasses some wholesale shifts in what the character means and how she's been used by Martin the last 10 to 20 years...
