Jill Thompson is one of my favorite creative people ever. She’s an amazing, versatile artist who works hard in a male-dominated field (although she said that she feels like the fact she’s a woman never made a difference — for good or bad — to anyone in the comic book industry and I can see that. The woman can draw and that’s really all it comes down to).
While it’s been out on DVD (and VHS) for a while, Cartoon Network will be showing the Mainframe production of Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktakular this Friday at 8 p.m. EDT. I couldn’t be more pleased that Jill Thompson’s fabulous work is getting this kind of exposure (despite not being a big fan of Mainframe’s style). Watch it and pick up some of the Scary Godmother books and comics. They’re all delightful.
