Sienkiewicz won a Kirby Award for his work on 'Electra Assassin,' but his art is fairly avant garde for the comic scene. 'Stray Toasters' came out in the 1980s, and even if it never gained mass appeal, it deserves to be a cult favorite. Sienkiewicz does all of the artwork and writes this series. He actually does the covers as oil paintings instead of drawings to be filled in by a colorist, and you'd swear many of the panels on the inside are also painted. And his art is amazing - it runs the gamut from psychotic and blood splattered to portraiture perfection with lots of interesting stops in between. But don't get this just for the art - he also provides a great story dealing with psychology and serial murders (while we've all seen enough of these tropes in movies and TV lately, he nonetheless did something original with it). Excitingly enough, there's a rumor that this may come out as a movie, so look for a reissue as a marketing tie-in and let capitalism actually provide something beneficial for a change.
