Tarantino Comics - Issue 37

Once again, I broke a promise and didn't deliver Tarantino Comics on a weekly basis.  However, I believe my track record is still better than Frank Miller's and Jim Lee's previous collaboration.  So to kick off my daily countdown to the San Diego Comic Con, this issue was inspired by Kill Bill.  Illustrated by Shawn Tommelleo, Tarantino Comics #37 was commissioned at MegaCon 2013.

This issue was the first to star the only man Bill ever loved - Budd.  Taking a comedic approach, Shawn created an awesome splash of Elle Driver's Black Mamba springing into action.  Although the figure has cartoony embellishments, Michael Madsen is recognizable with his greasy hair and a flashy metal necklace chained around his neck.  In addition to the imagery, Shawn's banner design was truly creative with his arching title font.

Shawn is another Florida artist with a fun sense of humor.  At the same convention, he drew a piece in my Muppets vs. Sesame Street sketchbook with a Deliverance twist...  So if you're interested in seeing more of Shawn's work, check out his webcomic at
