Children of 'men

Why Blair Butler And Kevin Mellon’s Heart Reminds Me Of Watchmen

This comic does not look like Watchmen. Mellon’s rough and ready artwork is about portraying action on the panel rather than the stroboscope precision of Dave Gibbons. This comic tells the story of a cage fighter and how he came to be in the position he is now, both in life, in location and in motivation. The fight is always moving, and the lines of the action, the blood streaks, the impacts, all flow, working together, every move already seconds away from you, somewhere blurring into the future.
