A Mad Tea-Party cover

  1. […] A Mad Tea Party and Lords of Death and Life by Jonathon Dalton. It seems I’ve been beaten to this by autobiographical comic artist Miriam Libicki with her TCAF questionnaire in the National Post, but I think Dalton is one of the most unappreciated artists on the internet. He has an extensive archive with fantastic short and long stories alike. He works hard, teaches 12 year old brats and still has time to help manage the Cloudscape collective.Dalton’s art style is bright and bubbly, with stiff lines and classic comic expressions. I think that because his style doesn’t fit into an already established category, but kind of teeters between manga and not-so-manga, many readers might be quick to write him off. If, however, you take a few minutes to read through some of his short stories, Dalton comes off as a master of sequence and storytelling. Within a few pages he is able to convey complete character personalities, complex situations and relevant issues. Lords of Death and Life is a particular treat, exposing an audience to the intricacies of ancient Mayan culture. […]

    Funny thing about the Boston Tea Party is the Americans enjoyed lower taxes, more freedoms and greater prosperity than the people in England – and were asking for (not that they had equal reprensentation) greater reprensentations than the commoners in England had. 🙂
    Still, it’s not as mad as it’s gonna get in this lovely story : D
