Blog of Zontar the thing from Venus.
."Extremism in defense of aesthetics is no vice"""Devoted to the intensive study of the most obscure and disreputable cultural manifestations of the decaying hu-man empire".
."Zontar, that's hardly a blog you have there. That's a TROVE of SPLENDORS, a COMPENDIUM of WONDERS, a BRITISH MUSEUM of BULLDADA."- Rev. Susie the Floozie...

Googled images of Fantomas and ended up here. I just lost much of this afternoon mesmerized by all of the arcane imagery on the Spanish and Italian comics. I'm fascinated by the utterly guileless approach to horror, crime and other genre staples. It's so energetic and so lurid; I feel like we've missed out on so much over the decades. Thanks for exhuming all of this; it will surely haunt my dreams and influence my art.
Welcome Russ. Glad you have found this archive.
