Meat Cake #16
by Dame Darcy

Meat Cake profiles the romantic Rudolph Valentino, the secret language of flowers, love spells, and spells for mermaid hair. Plus: don't miss the true tale of the magical ball and a kitten left by the faeries in a box of nails, depictions of 16th century folk ballads about the uselessness of everything, as only Dame Darcy can depict. And... sex magic!

Larry Reid's Fanta (Eros) Racer?

A rough re-cap of tonight's Simpsons episode.
I hear Edward Norton doesn't even know he owns one of these fine products.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Kovey KornerJordan CraneJohnny Ryan 18 Nov 2007 12:40 AM
For my dad's recent 60th birthday I thought I was being very thoughtful when I sent him a mousepad featuring a picture of his first car-- a damaged picture that I had reconstructed for him in Photoshop. When I called him he laughed since even he hasn't used a mousepad in years.

BUT that's all the more reason to get your highly collectible Jordan Crane mousepad before everyone realizes that it's the last mousepad that will ever be made. PLUS you help out Jenny Ryan's Felt Club.


Or, at the same site, you can buy a pretty mirror with art by Johnny Ryan.


Or whatever.

This report of Joe's recent visit with the Walker Art Center Teen Program is really great.
Mister Wonderful, Part 10

While you wait for the Simpsons to air on Sunday night, enjoy the latest chapter of Daniel Clowes' Mister Wonderful.

Mary In Comic Con Land
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Fantagraphics history 16 Nov 2007 2:02 PM
My new favorite diversion: Mary In Comic Con Land. Artist Mary Fleener lives just north of San Diego and as such has attended a *lot* of Comicons over the last 25 years, and now she's sharing a quarter-century of photos. It's a treasure trove featuring just about every alt comix luminary you can think of from the last three decades, from Spiegelman to Bagge to Seda to Clowes to to Groening to Eisner and dozens more. And they're all so young and fresh-faced, positioned against faded convention center walls and faux-wood paneling, with none of the glitzy excess of today's comicon. It's a nostalgia vortex of bad hair and skinny ties and dim yellow light that I just can't get enough of. Time to pull out those old Stickboy back issues. Here's a couple primo examples, the first two featuring a Fanta panel from the late-80s (including Los Bros., Clowes, Bagge, Peter Kuper and Dennis Worden, the second two from a late-80s comicon dinner with Clowes, Kim Deitch, Fleener and Bagge. Good stuff.







Miscellaneous Importance.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Richard SalaRay FenwickKovey Korner 16 Nov 2007 11:38 AM
I have absolutely no use for the perfect coin purse. But Ray Fenwick makes me want things I don't need.

Ray recently guest blogged on one of my favorite sites, Book By Its Cover. There he has summarized his love of Mat Brinkman as such: "I'm always searching for art that gives me both something I understand and something I don't."

I proudly own this enormous etching by Lizz Hickey of an unsettling, beautiful and overwhelming slice of extraterrestrial landscape. It's one of the most dense worlds I could imagine creating, brimming with details that all seem to insinuate life-going-on. Unfortunately that image is not on her Flickr page. BUT, now she's cranking out nearly 100 different prints that seem to be microcosms within that crazy world. Close-ups of vague organic forms doing uncertain things. I like it. As an acquaintance of mine might say, I understand it and I don't understand it.

Sunday night: Simpsons with Clowes & Co.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under televisionDaniel Clowes 16 Nov 2007 10:59 AM


Finally! This Sunday night (8PM/7C) is the long-awaited airing of The Simpsons episode featuring Daniel Clowes, Art Spiegelman, Alan Moore and Jack Black. Reportedly, the episode finds Jack Black's character opening "Coolsville," a hipster comic shop that threatens the Comic Book Guy and Android's Dungeon. How Clowes, Spiegelman and Moore factor in we can only guess, but can't wait to find out. Set those Tivos early.
