HONOR KILLING

Thanks Bosch, great as always. Aside from the talent of the artwork itself, I think what makes your work so compelling is your gift for capturing the complete message in each piece. From the actions of the characters, to their expressions, to the allusions, each piece tells a story all by itself. It's fascinating.

Thanks for all you do. Carry on. Be the Pig!

Wow! The panicked expression on the terrorist's face shows the stark reality that "faith" won't save his bacon from being cooked. Very little doubt about that. Love it, my friend. Powerful. I echo Fellow Infidel's words. You have an amazing gift.

Fellow Infidel,

What can I say to that besides as sincere a Thank You as this text can muster, wow, means a lot.


Mike,

I thought it more important to show the expression of Pigman's next victim than the actual direct gore of the present one. Thank You, Mike, always.



Now a word about this enemy and the flip of the idea 'Honor Killing' in this piece:

There's something about this enemy thats really telling; they always refer to themselves in the exact opposite way than what they actually are. They refer to themselves as 'Holy Warriors', when in reality, they're sneak-attack/stab-in-the-back rat bastards who target unarmed civilians. They make a lot of noise about their 'love of death', when it's actually a hatred of life that motivates them. I get into this real good in The Infidel, as it's another echo of the dualism of Islam and this enemy.

This quote by itself is as satiably truthful and powerful as your upcoming anti-slime graphic novel, and can be literally sold out separately on a single card like a holy scripture.

It's so simply factual yet revealing that it could very well be the cure for leftist whitewashing terrorist enablers.

Of course, it goes without saying -- great drawing.

Phuckie Slum,
Again, what can I say to something like that besides Thank You.

Thank you for clarifying the mispercieved details of my earlier comment. I was so excited that I got confused. Thank you for sharing your talent and wisdom. Keep 'em coming.

P.S. After you finish "The Infidel," I suggest that you do a graphic novel exclusively of Pigman. Some adventures, exploits, heroic deeds, you know...But again, it is just a suggestion. You are the inspired artist, you know what to do.

Bosch Fawstin said...

Godfrey of Utah,

Thank You and I appreciate the enthusiasm big time.
Regarding a Pigman comic/graphic novel....Let me mention that the idea that got this story rolling for me to begin with was to write about the kind of guy who would write a comic book like Pigman, but since then, Pigman's gained a life of his own, a story of his own, and one definitely worth telling outside of The Infidel, so expect to see Pigman in his own stories at a certain point, likely intercutting certain issues of The Infidel if I must release it as a serial. Stay tuned...

Wow! Your firs issue of The Infidel has not been released yet, and already you're planning a spin-off! My compliments! Will Sherman Hemsley be in it? ;)

Movin' on up.
