The Comics Journal #290

The Comics Journal #290
Edited by Mike Dean and Kristy Valenti; Gary Groth, executive editor

Hard truth, subjective take or slanted hatchet job? Monte Schulz and a roundtable of Peanuts experts and critics probe and debate David Michaelis's controversial new biography of one of the most influential and beloved cartoonists of our time: Charles M. Schulz. Matt Madden, co-series-editor of the Best American Comics anthology series, will dish about his upcoming comics textbook (written and drawn with Jessica Abel, his frequent collaborator) and his efforts to translate the OuBaPo movement into English with 99 Exercises in Style. A preview of the Joe Kubert biography Man of Rock. Plus: A color gallery of "The Wall of Flesh" and other '50s horror stories from Golden Age cartoonist Bob Powell (the Good Girl artist known for his work on Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, Blackhawk and the original Mars Attacks trading cards) rounds out the magazine.

224-page squarebound 7.5" x 9.25" magazine • $11.99

Bob Staake Struwwelpeter animation

For over a year Bob Staake has been working with London animation studio Wyld Stallyons to produce an animated version of his book Struwwelpeter (part of our Blab! Storybook series). The second animation test is now online for the world to see and dang if it doesn't look great -- Staake's work is beautifully suited to modern animation techniques. (There's also a downloadable Quicktime version. And don't forget to visit Bob's official site for the book.)
