Gunshow? If not, you're missing out. Green is one of those instinctive cartoonists, much like Kate Beaton, who infuses each line with love and has an innate sense of composition and comic timing. The artwork contains shades of John K, and the comics are, by various turns, manic and tender. Plus, it's got one of my favorite plot arcs: "The Anime Club."
The brilliance of "The Anime Club" is that it feels at once familiar and unexpected. It follows the misadventures of a group of nerdy Japanophiles -- misanthropic Mort (who considers himself a true connoisseur of Japanese animation, despite his love of Cardcaptor Sakura and Sailor Moon), ticking timebomb Dave, wide-eyed Clyde (who truly falls for anime after a disturbing hentai incident), and Mark, the group's ever-so-slightly-less-insane leader.
Green posted the final installment of "The Anime Club" this weekend, which pits the Anime Club against a vindictive store owner, their insufferable rivals at the Japanese Animation Club, and their own inability to get along. Green says he may post more Anime Club comics down the line, but this particular arc has come to a close -- and we can expect a print edition soon enough.
