Tarantino Comics - Issue 34

This week's issue was the last one commissioned at The Super Wild Pig Show 2012. Inspired by Pulp Fiction, Tarantino Comics # 34 was drawn by Ian Glaubinger.

Ian has a very unique art style that is composed of retro pop art mixed with modern day cartoons.  In this particular cover, Ian did a terrific job showcasing a simple yet memorable scene from Pulp Fiction:  Breakfast at the diner.  Although Honey Bunny isn't involved, the dialogue box alludes to the seriousness of Jules' retirement.  However, humor breaks the scene with Vincent's word balloon dictating "You've decided to be a bum..."

Overall, Ian's pop art is colorful, memorable, and iconic.  At the Wild Pig Show, his booth caught my attention right off the bat because he was surrounded with prints depicting movies and TV shows that I love.  I also appreciated Ian's talent because I've met other artists who sell prints in a similar style, yet they're not brave enough to draw at the conventions themselves. 

So if you enjoy Ian's art style like I do, be sure to check out his work at
