The three young cartoonists featured here, Jonny Negron, Julien Ceccaldi, and Walter Scott, all draw fashion better than Anna Wintour can edit it. They are part of a next generation of cartoonists—kids born around 1986, “The Year That Changed Comics” (when Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen and Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns launched, and the first collected edition of Spiegelman’s Maus was released), who came of age while the comics aren’t just... discussions were already growing tired. These young artists haven’t had to contend with the same bullshit their cartoonist predecessors did. They’ve gotten to work from a wiped-clean slate, to make whatever they like. They are drawing inspiration from all sorts of sources, including the glossy world of high fashion. It looks good (they wear it well).
Fiona Duncan has awesome taste in comics.
