*exclusive to the Web and tcj.com For most of the past decade, Kevin O’Neill’s been drawing a series that shows off his gifts for dramatic pacing, fuming caricature, stylistic pastiche and outlandish invention: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, a cracked rampage through the history of pulp fiction. Written by Alan Moore, it’s run intermittently since 1999 (and inspired a disastrous 2003 movie), and has featured some of O’Neill’s most uproarious and thrilling artwork. (As with his idol Will Elder’s work, every reading reveals new details to giggle over.) The 2007 League volume The Black Dossier, in particular, is a visual tour de force, with its narrative sequences punctuated by spot-on parodies of vintage British boys’ comics, Art Deco, Tijuana bibles and more, culminating in a flabbergasting psychedelic 3-D freakout. O’Neill is currently working on a League project called Century, whose three volumes are set in 1910, 1968 and the present day; the second volume is due from Top Shelf in October. I spoke to him via phone in August, 2009.

Claire Burrows on Rip Kirby: The First Modern Detective: Complete Comic Strips 1946-1948

Rip Kirby is a classy gentleman: James Bond without the philandering; Sherlock Holmes without the opium; Don Draper without the shameful past. Rip is unshakable, even when a fashion model is shot on his upscale New York City doorstep while Desmond the butler serves the morning coffee.
