Triple Dare #2
We're very excited about our new issue of Triple Dare. We think it's really something new under the sun a comic with three distinct creators that's neither collaboration nor anthology.
This issue contains a 10-page story each from Tom Hart (Hutch Owen's Working Hard, The Sands), James Kochalka (Monkey vs. Robot, Peanutbutter & Jeremy), and Nick Bertozzi (The Masochists, Rubber Necker). Each of their stories stands on its own, yet are subtly linked by a secret set of "dares" the three work out in advance.
Now, from a trio of cartoonists less exuberant and downright hilarious as these guys, this could turn out to be a rather clinical, inaccessible book. But what they've come up with is one of the friendliest comics around. Their individual approaches share a wonderful cartoony yet poetic quality, yet their differences make the whole thing as satisfying as turkey and Swiss on rye. We hope you'll try out this team effort from three of the most exciting young "post-alternative" creators around!
This issue also features a special full color back cover by Matt Madden (Odds Off, Black Candy), also following the three dares in this issue.
