James Kochalka is one of the most awesome human beings on the planet. Not only did he provide the page above, he colored it. For fun. For fun!

One of Jeffrey Brown’s specialties is creating comics dealing with relationships and heartbreak. Given Sue’s speech on this page, Jason felt that Jeffrey was the perfect choice to draw it.

In the short time since his first graphic novel Clumsy, Jeffrey Brown has quickly established himself as one of the most prolific and respected creators working in alternative comics. Some of his best known works are Sulk, I Am Going to Be Small and The Incredible Change-Bots You can find Jeffrey online at Jeffrey Brown Comics.

At the time this art was created, it was the largest piece of comic art Jeffrey had ever worked on.

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.
