Our Eric Reynolds made the scene at the Frye Museum for the gala opening of "R. Crumb's Underground" and has the photos to prove it -- click here for the whole set on Flickr.

"He devoured everything from history to biography, and was also fond of reading Dennis the Menace comic books imported for him from the US. People asking for autographs were greeted with stern silence."

Name this cartoonist.

It's always interesting to see how an artist's style evolves but I was as surprised by this cartoonist's early work as I was when I saw Ware's Floyd Farland. You might recognize the lettering in this sequence since we had to translate it using his modern hand-lettered font.

There's a zombie up there and here we have this pop culture reworking starring Scully and Mulder in a quirky short.

Anthropomorphic animals and Hemingway as a character? He draws them a lot differently these days but you've probably guessed who it is by now.

"Pocket Full of Rain" goes to press in February and it's a treat for those of us who are big fans.

Tom Spurgeon over at the Comics Reporter beat me to the punch a bit on this, but yes, our new website features artist interviews in various formats for your reading, listening, and watching enjoyment. Our brand-newest addition is Gary Groth's interview with Paul Hornschemeier from Mome Vol. 1, reprinted here on the website in its entirety! And yes, we will be adding EVERY Mome interview to the website over the next few weeks -- stay tuned right here for announcements as each one goes live.

In the meantime, you can catch up on what's already there, including some classic vintage Comics Journal interviews with Peter Bagge, Los Bros. Hernandez, and Jim Woodring, all in downloadable PDF format. (Follow those links to the download pages).

Our own, beloved Gene Deitch weighs in on the future of animation and the influence of motion-capture technology on his field over at Animation Magazine.
Mister Wonderful, Chapter 18
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under webcomicsMister WonderfulDaniel Clowes 28 Jan 2008 10:06 AM

Chapter 17 of Daniel Clowes' New York Times strip so masterfully built tension into such small space, and Chapter 18 is even more powerful and devastating. I'm actually sad this is ending in just a couple weeks, I don't think I've ever enjoyed a weekly comic more. We're pullin' for ya, Marshall.
