Because there's a certain strand of nonsense that seems increasingly out of place over on the old Workblog.

I’m surely late to this, but Akira the Don blogged Matt Black’s Goya Galactus (from  kirbymuseum). Black’s charcoal homage on Goya’s Saturn Devouring His Son is fantastic stuff. In the same way as Saturn in the original, it’s all in the expression. Galactus’ sense of hunger feels mythic and desperate here in a way which it rarely does in actual comics. Galactus keeps his dignity, and here we dig beneath it.
Er… pseud-alert, etc.
