Meathaus, what a moment in time. Many of the artists associated with Meathaus continue to define a certain corner of comics and animation a decade and a half after this book came out. Dash Shaw, Farel Dalrymple, Jesse Moynihan, many more...but at the time these books were coming out, it was really an event to see so many of these highly accomplished cartoonists (who seemed to have fully digested mainstream comics, art comics and manga and synthesized these styles into something new and strong: The Meathaus group) all in one place. Domino was lucky to get a few boxes of this now hard to find book, so we are offering it at half off. A real part of comics history and just a damn good anthology. If you haven't seen it, get hip.
Meathaus certainly didn t invent the whole idea of a comics anthology, but it s the kind of book that ll make you think otherwise. An über-team of creators gives it their all in s. O. S. , spilling passion/sentiment/cool/rage onto the page. Their stories are beautiful and brutal, bizarre and brazen, all told by guys like james jean, farel dalrymple, brandon graham, tomer and asaf hanuka, thomas herpich, jim rugg, corey lewis, matt furie, d-pi, ross campbell, sheldon vella, and dave kiersh. Editors brandon graham and chris mcd consulted their favorites; list and brought in a whole new cross-section of the comics scene. The resulting mash-up of artists, action, styles and energy makes meathaus: s. O. S. An essential read for indie comics lovers and beyond.
