Stuart Kolakovic's Never Been
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under webcomics 29 Apr 2008 4:41 PM

Finally a web comic that's actually made for the web... or one unruly book. By Stuart Kolakovic of the UK.

UPDATE: Stuart writes "Funny you should call it a web comic- it honestly never even crossed my mind- Never Been was originally printed as a massive, almost 10 meter long mural which wound its way around a gallery wall. The gallery had low ceilings and beam supports jutting out all over the place, hence the funny winding shape. I've never actually read a "web" comic. Comics are all about paper in my book!"

But I persist in saying it's one of the most succesful web comics I've seen, actually making use of the parameters of web technology and viewer interaction rather than just using the web in lieu of print production.

Still, I'd rather view it as a mural. Must have been a beauty.

Los Angeles Cartoonist's Cat Bird Up For Adoption
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Steven Weissmanarbitrary cuteness 28 Apr 2008 4:10 PM

Nothing directly to do with comics but Steven Weissman writes on his Flickr page: "We rescued this kitten out of a bird's nest in one of our cypress trees this weekend. We're taking care of it for now, but if anyone wants her, please let us know. She's cute, sleeping through the night and maybe 3-4 weeks old."

Are you going to pass up the opportunity to adopt a cat who thinks it's a bird??

Amor Y Cohetes - A Love and Rockets Book by Los Bros. Hernandez

Amor Y Cohetes - A Love and Rockets Book
By Los Bros. Hernandez

To a very great extent, Love and Rockets is synonymous with Hoppers’ Maggie & Hopey and Palomar’s Luba & Carmen & Heraclio & Tonantzin... but there was always more to L&R than that. Amor Y Cohetes finally collects together in one convenient package all the non-Maggie and non-Palomar stories by all three Hernandez Brothers from that classic first, 50-issue Love and Rockets series — a dizzying array of styles and approaches that re-confirms these groundbreaking cartoonists’ place in the history of comics.

The book leads off with Gilbert’s original 40-page sci-fi epic “BEM” from 1981’s very first issue of Love and Rockets, featuring a very different Luba and a much looser, Heavy Metal- and Marvel Comics-inspired way of storytelling.

Other stories include Jaime’s charming “Rocky and Fumble” series starring a planet-hopping girl and her robot; stunning one-shots such as Gilbert’s Frida Kahlo biography “Frida” and his shocking autobiographical fantasia “My Love Book”; Mario’s genre thrillers which take place “Somewhere in California”; Gilbert’s brutally dystopian “Errata Stigmata” stories; the playful “Hernandez Satyricon,” with Gilbert drawing Jaime’s characters, and “War Paint,” with Jaime trying out Palomar; Gilbert’s light-hearted “Music for Monsters” starring Bang and Inez; and even a fantastical “non-continuity” Maggie and Hopey story “Easter Hunt” by Jaime that didn’t fit into the other books.

Amor Y Cohetes, the seventh (and concluding, for now) volume in the new “Complete Love and Rockets” series of compact, affordable paperbacks, shows a very different side of Los Bros Hernandez.
