Jem Eaton, "The Canal of the Eternal Sun"
Jem (also known as Jeremy, for those of you who might know his earlier comics such as A Sleepyhead Tale, The Island of Dr. Moral, and A World of Trouble) describes this piece as "a sequential grid, based on certain central conceits proposed in my new novel, Funny Sunday." The novel-in-progress, described by the artist as "a fantastic and darkly-humorous epic tale of sex, murder, theology, philosophy and cartoons, one featuring homicidal adolescents, hard-drinking bible salesmen, horny cartoonists, sinister birds, contemplative parasites, and talking trees," can be found here.
