Conan Meets Kamandi: First Look At Busiek, Dewey And Bellaire’s ‘Tooth And Claw’

If you tell me that there’s a new comic out from Kurt Busiek, Ben Dewey, and Jordie Bellaire, then you have my attention, but if you follow that up by telling me that it could be accurately described as “Conan meets Kamandi,” that’s when I start just throwing money in random directions hoping that it hits someone who can hand me this book. It’s a bad strategy for buying things, but it’s just too hard to wait for November and the release of Tooth and Claw #1.

Set in a brutal world of violence and magic, Busiek and Dewey’s Tooth and Claw was announced at Image Expo during San Diego Comic-Con. The book is billed as a “world-building fantasy” focused on a society of animal people that’s coming apart at the seams, and as you can see from the new pages Image released this week, it is absolutely beautiful.

As much as I like Busiek’s work — especially on fantasy titles like Conan and Arrowsmith — the real draw here for me is seeing his work with Dewey. I was actually able to check out a few of these pages while Dewey was drawing them when I visited Portland a few months ago, and they are absolutely beautiful, and Jordie Bellaire’s colors look amazing.

Tooth and Claw launches on November 5.
