SOLAR BROTHERS: Solar Brother #13 (Pink Cloud from a Yellow Sun)

  1. Huh. A clear counterpart to the green #30, but a little more disturbing (if possible) because the eyes seem more 3D and fully realized -- it's like #30 is the version drawn by a teenager, and this is the one drawn by an adult who's been working with this character for years and now has a successful Adult Swim series about it. These two are very striking deviations with their use of color, more anthropomorphic eyes, and even #30's sword (which puzzles the eye until you see the bizarre perspective, which surely is 100% intentional, and then it puzzles it in a different way).

  2. On very very rare occasions, a blogger receives a comment which is so perceptive, so intriguing, so original, and so fascinating to read that there is truly no real response that can be given. Other than perhaps a hug and a very sincere "thank you." This is one of those. If you were here, I would hug you, kiss you on the forehead, thank you, and then try to explain to your partner the forehead thing.
