This week, Augie goes back to 2005 and revisits "Joe the Barbarian" artist Sean Murphy's Oni Press-published graphic novel, "Off Road," finding that there's a lot to like inside the cover, with one caveat.
Yeah, this book is great. Seeing the used prices I'm glad I've still got my copy around to read when I want. I believe Sean has mentioned that the rights would be returned to him soon and that he could get another printing out there. I hope so, because now that he's a bigger name I'm sure more people would pick this up. And that means more financial freedom for him to take on his next OGN once his DC contract is up.
Sean's a great talent and a great asset to the comics industry. Anyone who hasn't read his journal entries on DeviantArt should go give them a read. He has a lot of interesting thoughts on comic creation and the industry as a whole. You can tell he really wants to perfect his craft.
Also, this reminds me to take my copy of Off Road to Heroes Con this weekend and get it signed by Sean. Thanks! ;)
