Shia LaBeouf

Meet the world’s most famous underground cartoonist. Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf is hardly the first celebrity to dabble in comic books, but where other stars slap their name on tie-ins for nerd-friendly Hollywood franchises or thinly disguised movie pitches in comics form, he went lo-fi and DIY.

In his short graphic novels Stale N Mate, Cyclical, and Let’s Fucking Party, as well as his webcomics series Cheek Up's – all available through his self-publishing imprint The Campaign Book, also home to projects from Marilyn Manson and Kid Cudi – LaBeouf combines knowingly crude art with writing that alternates between achingly sincere and viciously nasty.

In the following slides, get a peek at excerpts from LaBeouf's biker saga Cyclical and the prose’n’portraits collection Let’s Fucking Party.
