Kane Lynch

Kane Lynch has a lot on his mind. His site features comics, videos, and photocomics, each section with its own oddball set of sensibilities. It’s hit-and-miss, but I liked several bits for different reasons which is always refreshing in a sea of mono-talents.

Of special interest to comics fans is his ongoing long-form comic The Relics. The figure drawing is pretty raw, but the story feels solid and well-planned, and you can see the art gradually improve as it runs to catch up. Given enough time, (and life drawing courses) you could see Lynch developing in a similar fashion to Jeph Jacques (compare: early JJ vs recent JJ).

Or he might just make music videos. The guy is obviously restless.

Either way, another one to keep an eye on.

  1. Well I’m hooked. I’m a sucker for this type of story.

  2. Jeph Jacques’ improvement always makes me feel better about how much I could improve.

    Not sure I like the story, though.

    Scott thank you for the suggestion. I do like what I’ve read of The Relic so far. And the art is showing some incremental improvements as I read it. P.S. I am so glad I stumbled upon your site while doing a comic book blog search.
