Yesterday saw the debut of glamourpuss #1 and I just wanted to write up a little blog entry about it. As those of you who read my blog regularly or semi-regularly remember, I've written a couple of entries on glamourpuss up already when I first heard that this would be Dave Sim's (Cerebus) next project and when he sent out the preview copy to retailers in March.
The actual issue is exactly like the full preview issue he'd sent out, which is great other than I don't get anything new to read or look at until glamourpuss #2 in July (this will be an on time bi-monthly title). For those reading this that haven't read my previous entries on glamourpuss, here's what glamourpuss is about: glamourpuss is Dave Sim's forum for his musings on photorealistic comic artists like Alex Raymond, Stan Drake, and Neal Adams with some satire / parody of the fashion industry on the side. glamourpuss doesn't have a regular narrative with regular characters, rather Sim is drawing women in the style of photorealistic comic artists of yesteryear, but I think that because of the the way Sim is producing this comic it is unlike anything els out there and also works on the level of being a history lesson of sorts on great artists from the comic book and comic strip medium (and the art is beautiful). I'd recommend picking glamourpuss up just as an examination into the creative mind of one of this mediums most eccentric creators (Dave Sim of course).
