Things to See: Introducing Joseph Lambert

Mome 22 has graduated, and is leaving home. I guess they all have to grow up sometimes.

As the swan song volume rolls out into stores and mailboxes, we're shining the spotlight on Mome newbies… who will now never appear in Mome again ever!

Today, we take a look at the work of Joseph Lambert… who was just recently nominated for two (TWO!) Ignatz awards!  One for Outstanding Artist, and one for Outstanding Anthology or Collection (for I Will Bite You! and Other Stories).  Find out at SPX if he wins 'em!

Here's a panel from a comic he'll have in the upcoming NoBrow 6. As Joseph notes on his blog, it may not be yellow in the final printing.

Joseph Lambert for Mome 22

…for his extraordinary piece in Mome! DAMN! I'm crazy about his lettering, it makes me think of Ray Fenwick.

By golly, get yourself Mome 22 if you haven't yet already!
