Spacegirl - Travis Charest
« on: July 12, 2011, 09:22:54 am »
Spacegirl (2007 - )





Spacegirl is interesting in that it started around 2007 as an online strip over at Travis Charest MSN Group (Website) for those that follow his work. I haven't followed Spacegirl since that time, but what I remember it to be is that it was one panel per week for a year or so, which comprised Volume 1. After that I lost touch with the Character and Story. Only last night did I see that there is a Volume 2. You can read all of Volume 2 over at his site. As for Volume 1, it can also be found at his new site as well.  So, you can read it should you so desire. His current site hosting new Spacegirl strips can be found here Travis Charest's Spacegirl (and lots of other stuff...)

As for Spacegirl, anytime you can get a daily (weekly) dose of Charest art, it's a good thing. The bad thing is it's only 1 panel at a time. Even worse is that what has taken 5 years to get to where we are story-wise, it could have been done in a weekends time. Travis is an amazing artist, one of the all time greats. But his desire to create the perfect art piece comes at a cost, the lack of quanity. You don't see much work from him because he can go a little overboard in making everything as best as possible. I don't blame him for this, it's just so damn frustrating waiting to get new stuff from him.

So, I give Spacegirl the rating it gets just because it's incomplete and after 5 years, STILL don't have a clue where it is going story-wise.
