Must Read webcomic alert: Masterplasty by James Harvey

20.png

James Harvey is an English artist, whose “MASTERPLASTY” is a prequel to the forthcoming ZYGOTE, which will be published next year by Blank Slate. Harvey’s done some work previously for VICE Magazine and Madefire. He’s also the guy behind Bartkira, the Simpsons/Akira mash-up—so clearly at the center of where it’s at.

MASTERPLASTY is about an operation on a piece of cartilage in the brain that changes how you look. It’s also about various levels of attractiveness and how it does—or doesn’t—change who you are.

Everyone will be talking about this tomorrow so you might as well read it today—a mash-up of old comics ads, Otomo, Jamie Hewlett and fashion illustration. Also, one of the BEST LETTERED COMICS I’ve ever read. It was originally created for the Secret Prison GARO tribute issue, but has been recolored in a new version.
