People who have been reading my blog for a while might recall that in high school I self published my own comic books. This was the late 90's and self publishing was a huge exciting idea. The two big comics of that time, well the ones that were most important to me, were Bone by Jeff Smith and Castle Waiting by Linda Medley. I found these books so exciting because they were so fresh and were doing things that only people in France and Belgium seemed to do: making cool comic books. Linda Medley inspired me to make my own comic, The Crow's Nest and sell it myself. Linda even published a letter I wrote her along with a drawing I did of her character Rackham in an issue of Castle Waiting.
I recently bought the gorgeous hard cover collected edition of Castle Waiting published by Fantagraphics and it was every bit as good as I remember. I highly recommend this book.
