Mad Doctors In Love

"Mad Doctors In Love" is my comic book take on a black & white movie. I'll be sticking pages of it up over the coming weeks along with sketches, designs and various other art. The story will appear in sequence (breaking at convenient reveals and chapter points). You can, as with all images on this blog, click on the thumbails for larger versions of the pages so you can read them.

"Mad Doctors In Love" is a project I've had kicking around for a good long while now. Almost too long for me to have not done anything about it, so here's me doing something about it. At one point it was even a proposal for an animation project. It's a potpourri of a few of my favorite things. Mobsters and Monsters. Gangsters and Gadgeteers.

There's something I find comforting about black and white movies. Something reassuring, about films like "The Maltese Falcon", "Dark Passage", "Key Largo", "Bride of Frankenstein", "Some Like it Hot", "The Lady from Shanghai" and Lewton and Tourner's "Cat People". And these are just a few of my favorite films. My word, how I love "Cat People"! They were straight talking movies. No nonsense movies. Enduring movies. Naive yet worldy wise movies.

Well, anyway, without further ado ...
