Kap Trap - 1991, Texas October 08 2019
This is one of his very early comics, first of many, we rescanned the original artworks and published this short story keeping the original pagination: empty page on the left and comic page on the right, like a flip book!
It was originally made edition of 50, in 1991, when Brinkman was 18 years old, about 28 years ago!
With this comic we can see how much Brinkman style developed in time, but there is always his unmistakable visionary creepy funny essence.
Me and many critics think that Brinkman secret in making comics is to give to his characters and worlds real life, it's dark weird fantasy, but it's so creepy and funny as real life is, and it's incredible that this is present in his earliest works yet.
Speaking about the edition, we chose to make a small and very cool edition for a very affordable price, 9€, here the features of the edition:
trade paperback with Hard Thin Cover thanks to
Sirio Black/Black paper by 490g
