The Bad Art Collection
(I know this was made LONG ago, but I only just now bought and read it.)
Johnen Vasquez’s “Bad Art Collection” is an interesting piece of work. On the inside cover, he claims that the art and jokes are intentionally bad, and I believe him. However, just because you make something bad on purpose doesn’t mean that it winds up being good.
I love “Johnny the Homicidal Maniac”, “Squee!”, “I Feel Sick”, and of course “Invader Zim”. The “B.A.C.” is somewhat akin to the Meanwhiles and Happy Noodle Boy pieces in Vasquez’s past works, but… well, it’s just not there.
Good thing, though, is that it only has a $1.95 cover price.
