No No Zero in The Nobody!

Jeff Lemire - who you may recall did the wonderful artwork for No No Zero's Rough Stuff album - recently released his first comic for DC/Vertigo, The Nobody. Here we have a couple of early work-in-progress pages from that same title.

The artwork features a poster of none other than No No Zero (!!) adorning the door of a young lady's bedroom (for some reason, featuring the rose from the cover of Depeche Mode's Violator album?!?). We also see that she has a poster for Catl on her wall, and still another for C'Mon taking pride of place above her headboard.

What are we to make of this? Are we to believe this girl has a thing for Toronto-based bands getting a bit long in the tooth? Has such a person ever existed? Is this no less fanciful than the idea of an invisible man, walking around doing things no one sees?

Regardless, it's very flattering if you're one of these bands and I knew I had to mention it here. When Jeff first sent it to Johnny LaRue, The Nobody had yet to come out, so I was asked not to post about it. This is also why the lettering has yet to be done in the speech bubbles.

Now Mr. Lemire is on to his next title, a series called Sweet Tooth about a boy with antlers on his head!

What will this guy think of next?
