Eric Adams has, thus
far, produced three issues of his brilliant book - Lackluster World. The
main protagonist is albino newspaper journalist Fahrenheit Monahan whose
bitter and defensive outlook on life fuels this dark satire and leads
him into conflict with his aggressively fundamentalist religious brother
Fahrenheit's world might be lackluster, but not comic world that Adams
has created. The art is dense, lush and fluid. I actually bought an original
page at a SPACE Con in Ohio in 2006 and you can literally feel the layers
on the artboard. The look may be cartoony, but the subject is serious
food for though. Have we become too commercialized to the point of societal
sterility? Is there really anybody out there you can trust and depend?
Why do we live our lives performing jobs we hate?
I highly recommend you visit www.lacklusterworld.com
and pick up a set of issues, and perhaps a cool t-shirt that asks the
important question: "Where were you the day you died?"
