CAKE DEBUT: Rudy by Mark Connery

May 8, 2014By NeilCAKE, Debuts, Exhibitors

RUDY by Mark Connery

Rudy, a collection of over 20 years of zinester/cartoonist/poet/artist Mark Connery’s work of the same name, while having long been a source of inspiration to many a cartoonist, has been largely unknown to those outside of Canada or select circles within comics. Through the help of 2D Cloud and Connery’s friend and fellow great cartoonist from the north, Marc Bell, this great series is being made available for the first time to the world at large!

Getting its start in the ephemeral world of small-run zines and minicomics, Rudy operated at the fringes of the funny animal genre, one of the medium’s oldest, while being informed by an absurdist, poetic sensibility. The humble format of these comics only heightened their impact on those fortunate enough to encounter them in their native context.

Words alone cannot capture the magic that is Rudy, it must be read to be believed!
