What a great way to start my day — watching this music video for Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine.
The super-powered video features the work of over a dozen different comics artists including Jordan Crane, Farel Dalrymple, the Powerpuff Girls’ Craig McCracken, Tim Sievert, Chris McDonnell, and more.
Your ears aren’t fooling you, either; Robbert is indeed the kids-music-pseudonym of Robert Schneider, better known as frontman of indie popsters Apples in Stereo.
Edit: Dan Efram writes in to add:
Robbert Bobbert is being developed into a television series by Puny Entertainment and Carolyn Suzuki, the animation team behind Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba show and the Creative Producer who has developed and produced hits for the Disney Channel and Cartoon Network, respectively.
The new Meathaus book S.O.S. is a beauty of a comics anthology. My review of Headgames, a previous book from Meathaus criticized that book’s ratio of good work to mediocre “filler”, but S.O.S. is cover-to-cover gold.
Edited by Chris McD, Brandon Graham, and Matt Gagnon, and featuring work from the likes of James Jean, Farel Dalrymple, Brandon Graham, Tomer and Asaf Hanuka, Thomas Herpich, Jim Rugg, and many more, S.O.S. was apparently pitched to artists asking them to “create a story as if it was the last comics you’ll ever do.” The result is a book that ranks alongside the best indie comics anthologies.
There’s even a piece by Ralph Bakshi. Baskshi fans take note that Chris McD and Jon M. Gibson are also responsible for an upcoming Ralph Baskshi biography, Unfiltered: The Complete Ralph Bakshi.
