I remember the days when Shia LaBeouf was just the cute and obnoxious brother on Even Stevens. Those were good times. Besides starring in films, it appears he’s also making comics. In fact, he made a surprise appearance at C2E2 in Chicago last weekend signing his work. Yeah, you read that right.
The story doesn’t so much follow any typical comic book narrative that I’m used to, instead it’s a collection of LaBeouf’s thoughts in picture form. Those pictures aren’t what I would call impressive either. They’re crude illustrations accompanied by random weirdness.
The thoughts include everything from wisdom to cliches to random musings. Actually, the books seem random in general. Based on just looking at the drawings, I can’t say they’d be books I’d consider picking up especially since the price tag is $20 (or $10 at some venues). I like sketchbook and comic diaries, but these books don’t seem to make any sense whatsoever. Obviously, they are only getting attention because they have his name attached to them—though I do appreciate that he just made his own story rather than getting a ghost writer or taking some other path to get his name on a comic.
Take a look at the following pages and feel free share your thoughts.
