After having been nominated for Webcomic of the Year by WebComicGeek, the site is now doing reviews of all nominees. First up is the Process! Vileboy has some amazing things to say and I have only recently been able to stop blushing! It truly is a great testament to my readers and to this project to be the subject of such insightful writing. And I quote:
Joe Infurnari’s The Process made the shortlist as a result of the gorgeous artwork and the brilliant concept.
Infurnari’s artwork is truly spectacular, he not only conjures up a weird fantasy world but also visualises the creative process at work.
This comic truly is a masterpiece of layout design. Each page is a work of art and some pages take on the complexity of a modernist mandala. Sprays of colour and complex interweaving of images that I have only ever seen successfully realised in Blade of the Immortal, until now. While Hiroaki uses his technique for the occasional center piece, Infurnari treats us to visual spectaculars far more regularly.
If that wasn’t good enough Infurnari, gives a glimpse into his creative process with detailed comments and rough sketches. It is great to see the artistic process at work and dissected so thoughtfully and reflectively.
If you consider yourself a fan of comics then The Process is a title that demands your attention with a visual insistence and a degree of intellectual playfulness rare in the form.
Is he good or what!? Thanks, Vileboy! I hope to see you next year…
