Penny and Aggie Gets the Fans! Treatment

Bittersweet news from Penny and Aggie this week as T Campbell announced that artist Gisele Lagace is taking permanent leave from the comic, apparently to focus on other artistic endeavors (such as her wonderful sex comedy Ménage à 3). Meanwhile, Jason Waltrip, artist for Fans! (the other source of my T Campbell obsession), will take over drawing duties.

While it's always sad to an artist leave behind the characters she helped create, I find I can't be too terribly upset about this change. Ménage à 3, a comic I've previously accused of being slow-moving and thin on plot, has picked up immensely in the last few weeks, and I greatly suspect that it's because Lagace's been giving it her fuller attention. And Waltrip has not only shown himself to be a talented artist with Fans!, he's become so adept at aping Lagace's clean style that I frequently fail to notice when he's guesting on P&A.

Some fans on the forum have welcomed Waltrip in with the hope that he'll find his own style -- as he did a bit in "Fan Glam #21" -- rather than imitating Lagace's. Normally, I'd agree, but P&A has such an enormous cast (seriously, you actually need a scorecard to keep track of them all) that a significant stylistic change would likely be distracting and confusing. And with the comic coming off the rollercoaster high of its recent string of incredibly satisfying story arcs (payoff after torturous years of buildup), I just want Campbell & Co to keep the momentum going.

not quite related to the strip in question, but i'd just like to point out that this blog changed my life -- and probably made me fail all my graduate courses.

I plan on passing most of my graduate courses. This blog is also changing my life. Do you take requests?

Elle Dee said...

You've discovered my evil plot to thwart the studies of graduate students everywhere. I suppose it's only a matter of time before the Justice League cancels my Blogger account.

In the meantime, yes, I do take requests. Just shoot me an email (or leave it in the comments).

We can see new and different arts nowadays but we should remember that some artists and review do hard effort and practice to present something new and special and they do their work according to demand of people that is the reason of their popularity.
