The art is by Jesus Redondo Roman, and it’s a perfect fit for the book.  It’s got kind of an old school feel to it – like it would fit into one of DC’s old anthology books.  It’s a classic look that somehow captures the overall weirdness of the story.  It’s solid art with great character design.  Just check out Sylbert Raven.  The best way I can describe him is that one side of his face looks like it’s made of skin tags.  That’s what I call a great villain face.

Obviously, KNOWBODYS is a must-read for fans of Maiellaro’s television work.  While it’s a different approach, you’ll recognize his voice in the book.  But you don’t need to be an Aqua Teen acolyte to enjoy it – it’s definitely more accessible than the nihilistic talking food products in that it has a plot with a beginning, middle, and end.  It has defined characters with emotional arcs and a conflict with consequences.  As much as I love ATHF, I’m really happy to see Maiellaro branching out with a whole different kind of thing.  Whether the name Mothmonsterman means something to you or not, check out KNOWBODYS.
