This should be good...
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Kovey KornerDaniel ClowesChris WareCharles Burns 7 Jan 2008 3:33 PM

Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware contribute stories to this Zadie Smith anthology of new fiction, The Book of Other People. Charles Burns illustrates the covers. It also has prose from the likes of Dave Eggers, Jonathan Lethem, and George Saunders. All of this makes for yet another beautiful Penguin Books artifact. [Note: I originally found out about this book via the great Blog Flume which has some scans of the cartoonists' work.]
Must Read: Mome 10, Dash Shaw
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under MomeDash Shaw 7 Jan 2008 11:58 AM

This weekend I sat down with our latest Mome anthology (#10 with Al Columbia covers) and I highly recommend that every fan of the comics medium buy it if only for the brilliant piece by Dash Shaw. For me Dash came out of nowhere and now he's just burning up with unconventional story-telling and smart formal experiments. One of the more remarkable things about his work is that in general (but very specifically in Mome 10) Dash is succinctly using color the same way other cartoonists use images in addition to words-- as a means to tell more than the written word alone could convey.

Unfortunately I don't have time for a proper review of his work. Suffice it to say that I don't get excited about many comics and his Mome piece is a poetic sci-fi mindbender when Vonnegut is about as sci-fi as I usually read. His blog and Bodyworld strip are online now.


Gahan Wilson's new blog?!?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under webcomics 7 Jan 2008 11:54 AM
This is interesting: the New Yorker has set up a cartoonists' blog. Cartoonist and online cartoon editor Mick Stevens will be the blog's first "captain," and it'll rotate every month. If this means future blogging from folks like Gahan Wilson and Bruce McCall, count me in.

Here it is (even though it still says "chapter 14" on the NYT site).
Jim's Info Barn open for business
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jim Blanchard 7 Jan 2008 7:28 AM


Come on down to JIM's INFO BARN, the new blog from artist Jim Blanchard. I particularly enjoyed the panoramic photo of his studio: if you check it out, be sure to look for the reflection of Jim's face in the mirror. I laughed.

New Clowes interview
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Daniel Clowes 4 Jan 2008 10:39 PM
Daniel Clowes talks to the Onion's A.V. Club. Sample quote, on his current NYT strip: "I'm sure 10 times more people are reading it online than in the actual paper. People have complained to me, like 'Man, that's expensive. Five bucks for one page.' Well, you do get a thousand pages of interesting stuff in addition."
Redneck / Supervillain Team-Up!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under staff 4 Jan 2008 9:47 AM
Tom Spurgeon just made my day, and not just because his essential Comics Reporter is back up-and-running. No, I'm talkin' about this photo of Jeff Foxworthy and Wilson Fisk (a.k.a. the fuckin' Kingpin of Crime), from Halloween night circa 1996:
