"my submission for Airtight Garage. Here's a giant robot black guy. It wasn't until I was halfway through this that I realized I was basically drawing a black Phantom." - k.

“I think the Air Tight garage was the first thing I ever read by Moebius. If I understand it right, he was pretty much making up the story as he went along in sort of a stream of consciousness kinda way. And it shows when you read it. The story meanders and feels a bit disjointed and kinda pointless sometimes. Some of the pages look like they took a week to draw and others look like they took two minutes. But the thing that is really great about it is this: it's an amazing artist playing with the medium. He's having fun and trying stuff and not worrying the work as a whole. It feels like it was fun to make and I think that makes it really fun to read.” - Tyler

“Homage to this EC Impact Series & Krigstein's horror/suspence classic.
In grad school, my thesis advisor brought in a tattered, well thumbed through edition of EC Classics. Among them was MASTER RACE and my first exposure to B. Krigstein and his work. Needless to say - it blew my mind.
I was enthralled with the collection of stories. It was easily my first real sit down with ANY form of EC Comics. (A new world, door, window, whatever - was opened that day...). Something about the pace, suspense, movement and storytelling of this story, especially, made everything suddenly click into place - How I got interested in visual-storytelling, illustration and the possibility of working in comics as a profession - it all just clicked. Krigstein's work lead me to Berthet & Bernet, rediscovering Caniff and so on (too many to name but much respect to all) - I was hooked...
...and have been happily addicted to this narrative/ink on paper crack-habit ever since.
Inspirational stuff. Long live storytelling!” - Nathan
