"King Top" by Panayiotis Terzis

Panayiotis Terzis contributed to issue 3 of my comics newspaper, Diamond Comics, and it’s great to collaborate with him again for Arthur Comics.  He’ll be sharing one new page of King Top on the 13th of each month.  The original pages are huge watercolor prints, please click on the image for larger size.  Pan also has some info about some new projects he’s working on:

The literary journal Salt Hill, published by Syracuse University is going to have 8 pages of watercolor comix and drawings by me, and one of my prints wrapping around the cover.  Should be out mid April.  I also will have two pages in an anthology of abstract comics put out by Fantagraphics, due out by Mocca (early June)..  And I’m working on a newsprint zine published by the Dynasty zine people who operate out of Athens Greece.  I’ll make a new artist-book for SPX I think.
