  • Our comics section this issue features 100 consecutive strips from Ed Wheelan’s classic Minute Movies, plus a history of the strip by Jared Gardner.
  • Bob Levin looks at the life and work of Hustler Magazine’s most notorious cartoonist, “Chester the Molester” creator Dwaine Tinsley.
  • Historian R.C. Harvey recounts the history of the first daily comic strip, Mutt and Jeff, and its creator Bud Fisher.
  • Paul Kirchner remembers the late Charlton cartoonist Wayne Howard.
  • Alan David Doane offers a critique of the modern comics shop.

As always, we’ve got teasers from the new issue on the TCJ.com website, including extracts of our Robert Kirkman and Shaun Tan interviews, plus Michael Dean’s Marvel Zombies essay in its entirety!

Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Ray Fenwick 16 Apr 2008 7:32 AM

  

Ray Fenwick's amazing first book, The Hall of Best Knowledge, hits stores any day now from Fantagraphics and the publicity is just starting to come in.  Today there's a great feature on Ray in The National Post of Canada

Meanwhile, the May 1 issue of Booklist features a starred review of Hall of Best Knowledge. "This is a life-passage story that reveals itself as such so slyly that the joy and loving humilty it evokes at the end are breathtaking," writes Ray Olson. Couldn't agree more.
