What an amazing story line, I thought I had it figured, but I didn’t…
I admit to being one of those who hasn’t read a comic book in ages, so shame on me, but I’ve since corrected that when I purchased Bosch Fawstin’s masterfully drawn series, ”The Infidel, featuring Pigman”.
I promised Bosch that I would write something about his comic series, but I want to be careful here, I do not want to show too much of Pigman’s ankle. So, instead of focusing on Pigman per se (i.e. the story), I want to talk about Bosch Fawstin, the artist himself.
First and foremost, Fawstin is a thinker. That much pops out on his pages. He has carefully (and successfully) created a cast of characters that are enduring. It’s an epic story for our times, a fight between right and wrong, good and evil, virtuous and decadent, truth and the lie, and peppered with the artist’s quick wit and humor. It’s a winning combination.
Those of you who follow Bosch on Twitter already know about his wit online, those of you who don’t, should. It’s still my opinion that he should keep a file of his tweets and put them into book form, they’re that good, and he has an endless supply, believe me, I read them all the time and he never is redundant. That fact alone is proof enough that he’s more than up to the task in keeping his material fresh, hard hitting and most of all…truthful.
If you learn anything about the man, his tweets and his comics, it’s that he’s never going to sell you out. He can be trusted, he’s a truth teller for our times. If you’re against SS Islam, buy his work.
