I Really Like Peter Snejbjerg

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Continuing with something I mentioned yesterday, I really like Peter Snejbjerg’s cartooning. This particular panel, from JSA #32, really jumps out at me:

Most emphatically cartoony work these days is heavily manga influenced - but I don’t really see that in Snejbjerg. Unsurprisingly, given where he’s from, his work feels European to me - maybe a bit of Asterix or Tintin. I’m a big fan of the obvious sense of fun inherent in Star-Spangled Kid’s appearance here - she actually looks like a teenage girl. Jakeem’s dreads don’t quite work, though. Oh well. No one’s perfect.
