Page 21 – Chester Brown

Sunday, August 17th, 2008

This is where it all got started. Jason had wanted a commission from Chester Brown, a favorite of his. Unfortunately, Chester only does recreations of his own work, but was convinced to recreate a Kirby page from the Fantastic Four. Chester’s page was so inspiring to Jason, it spurred him on to get the issue recreated from different artists.

Chester Brown is an accomplished cartoonist, and author of many award winning graphic novels and comics, including Yummy Fur, Ed the Happy Clown, and Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography. Chester Brown’s work can be seen at his page at www.drawnandquarterly.com.
