For The Love of Artifacts 2

Buyer beware: brick and mortar shoppers, otherwise known as Cro-Magnons, can have a tough go tracking down that special book. Here's a couple from my cave...

Visit the crystal worlds of Cordwainer Smith and see the brave tiger man who can pluck insects out of the air with his toothpick fangs. He's damn good at rescuing lost animals, but as this is the fifth time this oxygen-challenged horse has been "lost" in the Anthracite Mountains, people are starting to wonder if rescuing isn't all he's good at.

This is a rare comic, don't ask me why, but it is definitely easier to track down than Little-Size Man-Thing. A mucky mound of male aggression, he crashes through windows in crowded public places at the slightest provocation.

In the spirit of the "quote contest" over at Secret Forest, I'm reminded of Voltaire and what he had to say about images like these:
It is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it.

I had a two-months obsession for three comics that were full of booms and crashes, I'll have to look for them in my den. And I remember it was great to feel that fast-paced action, I wish I could write something that way. Two months with some of your giant mans – that would be a blast!
Great to see your links, thank you. Number 1!
