The Bigger Bang

And then there is The Bigger Bang! Everything started with me asking D.J. Kirkbride to create a superhero comic with me. Every piece fell into the right place and we got the green light almost immediately! Everything happened so FAST! The book was a success especially critical wise. Like best comic of 2015 lists... and reviews like "Vassilis Gogtzilas is a madman. His art is stunning: reading it, I felt like I was just seeing Bill Sienkiewicz or Sam Keith for the first time. I just scrolled through every page muttering “oh man” to myself. The painted artwork is stunning to look at: so well crafted, but at the same time exaggerated like the most ridiculous comic art is."...

Misery City

And now let 's talk about.. Misery City! A "small" book i created around 2010. K.I.Zachopoulos helped to flesh out the dialogues. I 'm surprised with how many people remind me about both greek and english publications of this comic. Some consider it one of my best works even...! I 'm so grateful readers discover it and appreciate it now even more than then... THANK YOU!

Thoughts

Hmm... it s so weird but maybe not so... that everyone has their own expectations from the future works of each artist me included... maybe i could do more comics, mainstream or not, maybe I could do more paintings or illustrations, cartoony or realistic, painted or line work. Besides my own strengths of what I could do..somewhere between all these expectations are my own plans and dreams and of course the unpredictable of LIFE! so I just do what I love...and I enjoy the ride!

Love Comics

It s going to sound kinda weird but as the years pass by I love art and comics more and more...I even like bad comics, ugly drawn comics, mainstream or alternative, everything...big guns and big butts to big nose and big feet comics... badly inked to fully rendered...painterly artistic or comic bookie in style...the fact that someone sat down and drew something to communicate a message is totally magical!!!
