Daniel Clowes is attending the Alternative Press Expo 2011. Daniel is one of our favorite alternative press creators just because he created Lloyd LLewellyn. Yes, Ghost World, David Boring, Pussey, and Eightball are also fan favorites, but Lloyd is our kind of character.
Mr. Llewelyn is a detective operating in the 1950’s where the lounge culture we here at Comics-A-Go-Go! love so much is full swing. Lloyd’s stories combine elements of TV detective dramas with old school sci-fi. Aliens present themselves. Beatniks abound. One can’t get too many beatniks. Chic chicks make a mess of things. Loyal sidekick Ernie Hoyle plays along for gag relief.
Primitive in style and mostly tongue-in-cheek, Lloyd Llewellyn is the type of comic that doesn’t expect much of you and you shouldn’t expect much back. The stories are goofy. The characters are goofy. The art is goofy. It’s all goofy fun!
