FF1993: Brain Capers

Brain Capers #1 by Mario Hernandez.

This book mainly collects various comics Hernandez had published in other Fantagraphics books (I think). I recognise pieces from Real Girl and Street Music, at least…

The original pieces are pretty light on story, but they’re interesting graphically. Here we seem to be going off in a slightly more ligne claire direction (while the story is a bit Mister X, which is appropriate since the Hernandezesses (is that the correct pluralisation?) wrote that book.

But it’s mostly pretty goofy…

… and lots of playing around with various art styles. Here Hernandez does a pretty nice emulation of Richard Sala (who is namechecked in the heading).

This post is part of the Fantagraphics Floppies series.
