Josh Bayer is kickstarting his fourth issue of the Suspect Device anthology. Suspect Device is a concept loosely based on Five-Card Nancy. The challenge is to incorporate two panels of existing comics into a new strip. You paste one panel at the beginning, one at the end, and draw what happens in-between. The source material is usually from classic comic strips like Nancy and Popeye, or newer strips like Garfield. Suspect Device #4 will also include material from the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia. Should be fun!
Even if you’re not a fan of Kickstarter, this project is worth a gander. A low pledge of $13 (which is in the neighborhood of retail + shipping) gets you the book AND an ink-wash drawing by Josh Bayer. This tells me one thing, and this is already pretty obvious: Josh can crank out an ink-wash drawing with ease and speed.
