    Welcome, one and all, to Multiversity’s Art Of The Week! Each week, we scour the internet for the best artwork sourced from the blogs, Tumblrs, Twitters, and Instagrams of the best comic book and manga artists out there and curate them here for your viewing pleasure.

    Fans of independent comics may know that 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of Jay Disbrow’s 1979 sci fi adventure comic The Flames of Gyro, the first comic to be published through Fantagraphics Books. Although Fantagraphics had been publishing magazines and adzines since 1976, The Flames of Gyro was the company’s first foray into the comic format, opening the door for later more high profile titles such as Love and Rockets, Black Hole, Eightball (Ghost World), Meatcake, Frank and Acme Novelty Library (to name just a few). So in this edition of art of the week we will look at a variety of underground and independent comics artists . . . some of whom have drawn inspiration and/or have been associated with Fantagraphics Books throughout its publishing history.

    And after checking out out this homage to underground art, be sure to check back next week to see more exciting, rarely seen artwork from the world of comic books and manga.
