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.)
