Two local artists — Aaron Delamatre and Russell Ihrig — have new comics ready to claim space on the shelves. The comic/graphic novel world is dominated, it seems, by superheroes, but that’s just because Hollywood studios have found that there’s money to be made off fanboys. Fortunately, there’s a not-so secret space out there where wild and wondrously adult stories exist that can be fantastically funny and sometimes heartwarmingly profane.
I know that last bit sounds oxymoronic, but that’s even more reason head over to Arcadian Comics & Games to grab copies of Ihrig’s Sockford (Part 1) and Delamatre’s The Bridge and meet these two comic marvels.
