Things to See: Introducing Jim Rugg
Written by janice headley | Filed under Things to seeMomeJim Rugg 16 Aug 2011 11:13 AM

Afrodisiac by Jim Rugg

We're introducing quite a few new artists to the pages of Mome 22, so as we wait for the final Mome to hit the stores, we're profiling some of these newcomers on the FLOG! Such as, Jim Rugg here!

First and foremost, I encourage everyone to check out Kristy's incredible interview with him over at The Comics Journal.  And here are some more "Things to See" from Jim!

A spread from Afrodisiac by Jim Rugg

I can't even begin to list all the awards that Rugg's blaxploitation ode Afrodisiac has received, but most recently it was a 2011 Eisner Award nominee for Best Humor Publication!

Rambo 3.5 by Jim Rugg

Speaking of awards, here's a detail from Rambo 3.5, a 2010 Ignatz Award winner for Outstanding Mini-Comic. You can read the entire thing for free on his website!

New York Magazine panel by Jim Rugg

This fall fashion comic for New York Magazine didn't win any awards as far as I know, but it totally wins for "Most Likely to Catch Janice's Eye." (It helps that the comic shares a title with one of the best albums ever made ever.)

Jim Rugg in Mome 22

And here's a panel from Jim's contribution to the upcoming Mome. Hey! What's gonna happen to that beautiful baby doe?! Find out when Mome 22 hits the streets later this month!  And stay tuned as we introduce you to more debuting Mome artists on the FLOG!
