Dash Shaw’s ‘Bottomless Belly Button’ Trailer
I’m usually not a fan of comic book trailers — ooh, a collection of still images shown in quick succession, how dramatic! — but the newly unveiled one by Dash Shaw for his graphic novel Bottomless Belly Button is worth a watch.
It’s at Fantagraphics’ Web site, right here.
Shaw created the animated trailer through a sort of rough series of drawings that interweave elements of the book. While it would work better with music, it’s a beautiful-if-simple video.
I reviewed Bottomless Belly Button earlier this summer. You can read that right here.
