Canned Air #285 The Art of Alex Schumacher
Release Date: 03/08/2019
We are joined by Alex Schumacher this week to first help us recall some of the best and worst movies to be inspired by video games. We dedicate our Retro Roundtable to talking about films like Street Fighter, Super Mario Bros., Resident Evil, and the new Sonic The Hedgehog movie posters we’ve been seeing. Let us know your favorite movie spawned by a video game on Facebook and Twitter!
Then we turn our attention to Alex and talk about his webcomics he has available at AlexSchumacherArt.com.
Decades of (in)Experience is not strictly a traditional comic to begin with, this illustrated narrative follows the weekly antics of Luke Carlin, a thirty-something who hasn’t quite figured it out. Like a lot of us he lives on the paycheck-to-paycheck merry-go-round, numbing his emotions and trying not to think about the mess that is his own existence.
The comic strip Mr. Butterchips appears monthly in the Drunk Monkeys literary magazine. The series recounts the titular (and cuddly) curmudgeon’s pursuit of love and happiness as he rails against the madness and mundanity of everyday life.
These are comics you won’t want to miss!
