This month, Highwater Books' alternative publishing magnate Tom Devlin says goodbye to summer with short interviews of Spanish cartoonist/designer Mariscal, English cartoonist/philosopher Glenn Dakin and Japanese cartoonist/scatologist Enomoto. Also in this issue, we provide an overview of the comics of Tove Jansson (Moomin creator), and Seth takes a look at the comics of John Stanley. Brian Ralph goes to Gary Panter's studio to try on the Pee Wee Herman merchandise, Greg Cook looks at how fine art has influenced comics and why cartoonists get jealous when that influence shows up, Ron Rege tries to track down Mark Beyer, and Jef Czekaj (of Hypertruck) explains how to get a guaranteed grant for your comics project. Finally, Tom Devlin explains how the deification of EC Comics has stunted the growth of comics for over 40 years. With a cover and interior design by Jordan Crane, this issue is a must have for anyone who's ever read alternative comics.
