Guest Strip: Geoff Vasile

Categories:  Guest Strip

mbtzAngry-looking people are a total crack up, agreed?  Which is why Geoff Vasile‘s mini-comic Geoff Vasile is Real will forever remain a favorite of mine.

Lately, Vasile has busied himself in the world of comics by (quote) “losing the prestigious Ignatz and Maise Kukoc awards to more deserving (if less handsome) cartoonists, being published in some low-profile anthologies and exactly one super-tacky magazine, and alienating a number of [his] contemporaries.” Bravo!

In parting, Vasile would like to report that someday he’d like to draw Daredevil or the Classics Illustrated adaptation of Journey to the End of the Night. Not sure what we at the Cross Hatch can do to propel that dream to reality, but for those of you out there with money and power, consider giving the boy a hand.

On the Guest Strip menu for today: a wallop of talent, sprinkled with tragedy.

    The guy’s a hack, plain and simple. Couldn’t draw or write himself out of a wet paper bag. If comics were a fetus, Geoff Vasile would be the abortion doctor.

    I’m sure Mr. DeBenedetto would be humming a different tune if even one of the characters in this comic were wearing a glowing green ring.
