    Cartoons, comics & prog

    The great cartoonist/comics artist/writer and publisher Gotlib (born Marcel Gotlieb) died today https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotlib
    He had a soft spot for Magma, so I googled:

    “Pop et Rock et Colégram” – MAGMA’s Attitude In Drawings!

    I was going to mention Matt Howarth too. He loves folding his musical interests into his comic books. The one that features Conrad Schnitzler and the Dread Cthulhu teaming up as a musical duo leaps to mind.

    I've asked here before and I'll ask again in case anyone performs some Google-foo that I haven't. Long ago in Spin (I think) there was a full-page comic strip about the King of Sweden hearing "Minnie the Moocher" for the first time, and being perturbed. I thought it was a hilarious idea, and I'd love to see it again but I'd never been able to find it online. I have no idea who the cartoonist was.

    Interesting. My brother who was(and possibly still is)a really big comic book guy told me about comic books in the past where the albums "Stormwatch" by Jethro Tull and "Pryamid" by the Alan Parson's Project were mentioned(posssibly not by the same cartoonist but who knows).

    Gotlib also did a double page on Jethro Tull with the same characters. It was a series that was developped or at least that appeared in the top French mag Rock'n Folk. Though I think these two and the album covers was the only thing he did re: music.


    RIP Marcel.

    (this is major news in France, btw)

    Well, if we're counting cartoons, The Venture Brothers had that once episode where Rusty revealed that he was a big prog rock fan and that his son Dean was named after Roger Dean. Also, there's copious allusions to David Bowie's career. The episode where we meet Wes Warhammer (an obvious mashup of Lex Luthor, as per his appearance in the Super Friends cartoons, and Andy Warhol), you can hear a band playing in the background at the party at Venture Towers that sounds an awful lot like The Velvet Underground.

    I might remember that, vaguely. If I'm right, it was in Tower Pulse, not Spin.

    Not prog, but Motorhead were selling a one-off comic on their Bomber (I think) tour:

    The cartoon strips and other stuff in Pink Floyd's 1974 tour program are worth a look.

    The first time I ever saw the Hamster character--and for a very long time the only time I ever saw him--was in a strip reproduced in a Zappa fanzine. Hamster was shown listening to "Penis Dimension," and after translating the lyrics, deciding to measure himself. We don't actually see his dong: we see him glaring at the ruler with his thumb marking the disappointing spot. Later, after watching a scantily-dressed Tina Turner on TV, he decides to try again. This time his hat flies off as he sees his thumb almost at the end of the ruler. In the last panel he shrugs and says, "Pop music is full of contradictions!"

    Mark Buckingham (Miracleman/Fables/Hellblazer/Neil Gaiman) is a prog fan and he's done artwork for The Gift and The Fierce And The Dead a2125809357_16.jpg

    He's a lovely man too.

    I'm pretty sure that Peter Nicholls of IQ used to have letterer for Disney Comics as a day job.

    Yes, I meant to mention Pulse too - I think that's right!
