Forming Drops into Our Greedy Little Hands

Posted on Wed, Jul 27, 2011 at 2:00 PM


I refuse to believe that comics publishing is doomed. Sure, the Xeric just decided we should all make webcomics, but that's okay, Xeric; we'll all just get published somewhere else. Maybe in Europe.

Jesse Moynihan's Forming may not be the best example, because the West Philly artist posts pages to his blog every Sunday night. Or maybe it's a great example, because Forming fans and European publishers (did you hear that, Xeric? European publishers!) realized Forming was a webcomic that really deserved to be in print. Some things still need to be in print. Jesse's colors and dick jokes (you can view said dick jokes after the jump) are too boss to exist only on the web. You have to get the ink on paper to really look at it, and London indie publishers Nobrow flippin' did it.
