Fantagraphics was in full effect at the 2008 Stumptown Comics Fest. Your humble reporter was only there for Saturday of the two-day event, but had a smashing time (and went 200% over budget buying comics, art & t-shirts — yikes). Here's a brief video clip of our table:

Spanish MOME
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Mome 28 Apr 2008 8:05 AM

Ediciones La Cupula of Barcelona has just published the second issue of their spanish-language edition of MOME. It's pretty unusual for an anthology to get translated into foreign editions, so I just had to Flog these:

Bob Levin talks to Tom Spurgeon
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Bob Levin 28 Apr 2008 8:04 AM
Most Outrageous author Bob Levin talked to Tom Spurgeon over at the Comics Reporter yesterday. This is your must-read interview of the day, from an author you probably haven't read, about a subject you probably thought you had no interest in. Why, then? Because in Most Outrageous, as Spurgeon so aptly put it, "Levin has written what may be the first completely unforgettable book about a modern cartoonist."

Speaking of Joe, if you don't have this comic, you're missing one of the truly great oddities in comic book history:

 

 

Lizz Hickey.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Lizz Hickeyart 27 Apr 2008 9:40 PM

Lizz Hickey is one of the reasons I decided to do another anthology this year. Working with a mythology all her own, her work is the kind of world I love to be let in on and the more I've looked at her portfolio the more she's become one of my favorite young artists. Primarily a printmaker, there is definitely an aspect to Lizz's work where an understanding of traditional print processes reinforces the awesome nature of what she does. Although there's an impulsive quality to her style nothing she makes is easy, nothing is throwaway. It's pure elbow grease. On the other hand, her work is personal and compulsive and can't be scrutinized on just some technical level.

The best part of the art is the way it works as a cummulative force, where every piece is an elaboration on a bigger universe. One piece may be dense with details (full of complicated social systems with that you can't even make out in that jpg up top) and another will just be some amorphous hand floating on the page, holding a ghost. But even then, most likely, the latter print will be printed and drawn upon a dozen different times, each time revealing more about the creatures and their world. And I can't say what it reveals, specifically, but I'm comforted by her playful characters who thrive in a world of mutual suffering and soothing and exploration.

April 28th-May 3rd Lizz has her Senior Show happening at Purchase College in New York. I'm a shut-in but if I were in the area I'd go to the reception April 30th if only to get ahold of the inexpensive silkscreened goodies she's selling. 

Visit her Flickr page for updates to her portfolio.
