'Last Days of Nobodies' - by Mike Medaglia.

Mike's work caught my eye last year with the wonderful 'Seasons'. So I was over the moon to hear he was putting out a new webcomic.

'The final days of a painter, a poet and a writer.'

'Last Days of Nobodies' deals with the final days of Vincent van Gogh, Emily Dickinson and Franz Kafka. The series proclaims to be interested in great talent both when they were unheralded and also closing in on their last days. Mike will be experimenting with the comics form and showing how art and comics intersect with poetry. 


If his previous work is anything to go by this should be full of artistic individuality and sequential elegance. Mike is never overly earnest and I expect this to be full of character eccentricities and beautiful designs. Like no other artist out there Mike strikes out on his own path. His storytelling is both fresh and unorthodox.

'Im nobody, who are you? Are you nobody too?' - Emily Dickinson.

This project is due to launch on Wednesday 28th May, 2014 and is bound to be cracking. It will update every other Wednesday.

I urge you not to miss the bus on this one. It has awards written all over it - and rightly so.

As well as the tumblr above you can find Mike at his website www.mikemedaglia.com or follow him on Twitter @mikemedaglia

You can read my review of his book 'Seasons' here http://beardrock.com/eyebrow-art/comics/seasons and buy copies through his website or some London comic shops. (I think GOSH! and Orbital Comics still have copies).
