Visual Culture: Wu-Massacre Comic Book Images
Yesterday Animal New York posted images from an unpublished Wu-Tang Clan comic book, thereby unleashing a time-delay nerdgasm onto the web. The comic book was based on (perhaps intended to accompany?) 2010’s Wu-Massacre album featuring Method Man, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon and has remained only a shadowy Wu-legend…until now. The images that follow (below and after the jump) are the work of art director/designer Alex Haldi and comic book illustrator legend Chris Bachalo. Just to make the sure the nerdgasm will still be producing aftershocks long after the big bang, the dialogue boxes are missing, so I am certain we can expect to see these images with hilarious LolCat/Cookie Monster Batman style catchphrases in the days to come. Paging Big Ghostfase.
