Richard Corben's Going Home


Another piece now from The Odd Comic World Of Richard Corben. This one, by comparison, a more elegiac and mournful piece than it's predecessor How Howie Made It In The Real World. Who says Corben can't do sensitive?

  1. Fantastic. My copy of Odd Comic World disappeared long ago, and last I checked most of Corben's stuff was out of print (a ridiculous situation!) so thanks for posting this - and How Howie Made It last month. Much appreciated.

  2. Yeah, ludicrous that this work isn't continually in print. Ah well, all the more for me to post!

  3. Wonderful stuff! There are some great strips in Odd Comic World. You've got the insane violence and humour of Mangle, Robot Mangler and the beautiful melancholy of Going Home and CidOpey. It's a shame Corben's early work isn't available any more... I much prefer it to his modern, mainstream stuff...

  5. Yeah, I think Ragemoor for example is excellent. I recently bought all 3 of the collected works recently from the States after selling a bunch of vanilla bronze age on ebay. I was also lucky to find a collection of NM/MINT Grim Wit, Fantagor, Slow Death, Death Rattle etc. Some of them were too nice to touch, sounds ridiculous but it's true! The 1st print of Fever Dreams is 9.8 unlike my 5th print I bought in '92 which is hammered.
