The (Almost) Blind Comic Artist from New Zealand


A friend over in New Zealand got me onto a cool comic series called Blastosaurus. It's written and drawn by a man called Richard Fairgray, who is legally blind. But the comics are a laugh. It's one of the most simplest and basic concepts, but this guy has made it his own. The concept is ... wait for it ... a mutant dinosaur (Triceratops) with a laser gun from the future, who has four twelve-year-olds for friends. Awesome.
The first story arc sets the scene of Blastosaurus's origins and his nemeses, and by the third arc, currently being released, Blasto is a cop working to destroy his foes that plague his new home. For anyone who wishes to look further into this, here is the link to Fairgray's awesome website:

It's a fun little comic, worth reading for those want a break from the antics of DC and Marvel metahumans.
