Tempo Lush #8: The Sculptor

Hey look, a silent comic!  I was wondering if Richy was going to get around to that in this set.  This is the story of a man who sees a huge chunk of rock and sets to sculpting it.  Um, this might be clear from the title.  As he is sculpting he is noticed by a rich man, who offers him a sizable chunk of change once it’s finished.  Sadly, sculpting takes precision and the artist is briefly distracted, which leads to some serious damage.  The artist is devastated but still determined, and he eventually gets another offer to finish his sculpture.  Still, there are so many distractions out there, and it’s so easy to deliver that fatal blow to a sculpture.  If I say more than this I’ll ruin the ending, and it was a delightful ending that I somehow didn’t see coming (one of those “oh, of course that’s where it was going” reactions, but clever enough for me to miss it).  Another solid entry to this collection, which is a perfect 8 for 8 so far, and is right around $16.50 for the set.
