Imagine comics created from the hybrid DNA of Chuck Jones and Charles Burns… with a dash of Jim Woodring and you’d end up with something resembling Jesse McManus. His fluid, hyper-kinetic, and lush brush strokes delineate a surreal world of feral children, rubbery animals, and constantly-mutating monsters. The Whistling Factory is an audacious debut from the sui generis frenetic imagination of Jesse McManus.
Jesse McManus has been drawing comics for a long time. He was the youngest contributor to the now legendary oversize Kramer’s Ergot 7. His comics were featured in many different publications including Vice Magazine. Jesse lives and works in Portland, OR.
