Wednesdays are overrated


I’m typing this one right into the content window, ‘cuz Billy Dogma would demand no less of my inerrant heart. Billy is pure id and bone, sweat and unashamed tears, and his creator Dean Haspiel puts a lifetime of thought into him so he can have one of his own, unreconsidered. It’s worth reliving over and over, which is what happens when he and his Olympian lover Jane Legit knock particles from both ends of time in The Last Romantic Antihero, a quest to tend the flame of love in the blue gloom of electronic solitude, massed but not connected. In the armor of naked feeling Billy and Jane give birth to a new kind of comics where romance means adventure and eros means life — look it up on your iPad, and call on Haspiel to save the night.
