Liam Cobb: Death of a Crow

Illustration: Incredible dystopian comics from rising talent Liam Cobb

Sometimes we genuinely find some of the best creative work for the site while hanging out in the pub – in this case by mooching about in my local last Saturday night. I ran into an old friend from university who still lives with Liam Cobb (another old friend from college) a comic book artist who’s spent the last few years working absurdly hard on his storytelling and image-making, recently producing the beginnings of a futuristic dystopian opus, drawn with the flair of Moebius and balanced with witty, understated dialogue that makes the apocalypse seem really quite drab.

In addition to this masterwork he’s also been releasing a series of graphic short stories set in the same barren wasteland. This one in particular stood out for its excellent pop-culture reference to one of the strangest ads ever made; “It’s too orangey for crows!”
