The Guardsmen of Infinity Portfolio by Carter Scholz and Jim Wilson.
This is the second publication from what one might call Fantagraphics’ prehistory. Publisher Groth was a teenager at the time, and I’m going to guess that everybody else involved was, too.
You have to love the self confidence displayed in that introduction up there. Better than Star Trek! At its best!
Good lord! *choke*
Scholz would go on to become a writer for The Comics Journal, and I wasn’t aware that he was an artist at all.
Which, er, uhm, I’m still not. I mean, you shouldn’t rag on comics produced by teenagers like fifty years ago, and by “you” I mean “I”. But c’mon.
I’m guessing that this is the introduction to the project that they determined to be not good enough so they abandoned it? It’s just a handful of pages that don’t lead anywhere.
The rest of this 16 page magazine sized (printed on thick unglossy paper) object is filled with character er studies like the ones above. Which explains the “portfolio” in the title.
It’s nicely printed, though.
Yeah, sure. Why not.
Hey! A Fantagraphics logo! Rad.
