  1. 1. Not a clue… I want to answer Bill Willingham and Fables. But I know that’s not right. The drawing is vaguely like Marjane Satrapi but far more detailed than stuff she does.

    2. Art Spiegelman.

    3. Sitter! Bill Watterson.

    4. No clue again. (I still haven’t read the Swamp Thing run I copied from you)

    5. No idea. (Quick google reveals the answer)

    6. Radioactive Man (I know that’s the Simpsons’ character)

    7. Candide and Optimism by Voltaire. No idea about artist. (If you look closely, you can see the bottom bit of “Optimism.” Also, the names of the translator and foreword writer help reveal the artist by searching for the book on Amazon!)

    8, 9, 10 – Clueless… Google reveals 8 and 10 though.
