    Oh man. I can't believe I impulse-purchased these two books on Friday:

    6823981183_fae83e6ede_z.jpg

    "Naughty & Nice" which is a big hardcover slipcase book of Bruce Timm doing nothing but straight up cheesecake

    and

    "Tale of Sand" which is a screenplay written by Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl, made into a comic by Ramon Perez.

    I haven't even started on tale of sand, but it looks excellent and it's published by Archaia who can do no wrong: http://www.archaia.com/archaia-titles/jim-hensons-tale-of-sand/

    I was walking by the various graphic novels and that slipcase image was staring at me from across the aisle. dat line quality. I bought it in a daze of subservience to the demands of the male gaze.

    Having never bought any collections of pin-uppy stuff, I have to admit that after the first hundred or so doe-eyed vixens coyly clutching their breasts I find myself sort of numb and faintly embarrassed. But really, Timm is an artist I put on the shelf right next to Cooke and a few others in the personal hall of fame. I came back to this yesterday and settled down on the couch with a snifter of cognac to savor a few pages at a time and it was much more the correct approach.

    Got some floppies as well, mostly x-force 18 which I had missed, wonder woman, supergirl, animal man, and something else I'm forgetting.

    It's so weird seeing Timm's pinup art.

    Hey wait my copy of Bruce Timm is #616 / 1000!

    That means I have the canonical marvel universe copy of it.

    sometimes I wonder what it's like over in the mirror universe where Bruce Timm made Marvel cartoons instead of DC cartoons, and DC has a thriving film franchise

    Over 300 pages of Bruce Timm fanservice images? I'm there.

    I'M NOT FINISHED WITH YOU!!!

    Bruce Timm really does draw the best fanservice

    Guy must have practised a lot

    I really want to buy Tale of Sand.

    Archaia really makes some of the best looking hardcovers in the business.

    Now I am imagining a world where we got Iron Man[?]: The Animated Series and the 80s Batman ends with Amanda Waller marching into the GCPD.

    Edit: Would it be Waller? I don't think there's really a Nick Fury character who gets the Justice League together but I don't think I've ever read a JLA origin story.

    The batman equivalent in marvel is Spider-man.

    I know rite

    I trust Archaia to do everything right the way I trust a record label like Profound Lore.

    Started reading Tale of Sand last night: strangely surreal and lively layouts.

    Er, that was unintentionally alliterative. But yeah, this is great so far.

    Also there's a much more affordable Timm cheesecake softcover version as well. Some of the images are just stupidly well-done. The whole thing is a paean to chicks and the expressive power of line and texture.

    I had forgotten about Tale of Sand. I'm going to have to track that down.
