Commander Rick sings the praises of Daniel Clowes, Peter Straub and Marv Newland. Daniel Clowes, the writer/artist of the alternative comic books Eightball and Lloyd Llewellyn, Private Eye, has been compared to David Lynch for his story-telling style and surreal sensibility. Peter Straub won the World Fantasy Award in 1985 for his novel, Floating Dragon, and has since penned such best-sellers as Koko, Mystery, Houses Without Doors and co-wrote The Talisman with Stephen King. Marv Newland created the animated cult fiavourite, Bambi Meets Godzilla, and a slew of other cutting-edge underground classics. Rick shows some of his favourites, including Sing Beast Sing, Black Hula and Lupo the Butcher.
