Time for a new installment of Steven Weissman's in-progress pages from "Blue Jay," an epic 32-page story from Chocolate Cheeks, the next collection of the Yikes! gang's adventures. In this week's episode: a brief solemn moment. (Remember, you must be registered and logged in to read.)

Gahan Wilson cartoon

In anticipation of Halloween, Playboy presents a gallery of classic cartoons by Gahan Wilson, along with a handful of interview features.

They also spill the beans on Fantagraphics' upcoming collection of every cartoon Wilson ever published in Playboy, a 3-volume hardcover slipcased set due next October, in time for Halloween 2009! Yow! (Having been a fan of Wilson's work since I was a little kid reading Matthew Looney books, I personally can't wait for this set!)

Chris Allen reviews Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko by Blake Bell

• Jeff Lester thinks Love and Rockets: New Stories #1 is so nice, he reviews it twice: once for The Savage Critics, once for io9; plus more reviews from The Star Clipper Blog and Marc Singer; Rocketship also gives it a quick plug

Our favorite fictional comic shop clerk recommends several of our new releases (though her page count for The Portable Frank is missing a zero)

• If you can read Greek, maybe you can tell us what Back to Mono is saying about Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron by Daniel Clowes

That Girl Eats Too Much
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jeremy Eaton 11 Sep 2008 9:55 PM

Jeremy Eaton is selling two dozen gouache drawings (including those seen above) in a one-night only studio show/sale, Sept. 13, 6-9 p.m. The same work will be available online at the same time (go to Comic Book Collective), but those in attendance at the opening get a special "locals only" price.

His studio is at 521 NW 43rd St., Seattle, WA 98107 (north side storefront of the big blue building at the junction of 6th Ave. NW & 43rd, just across from Hale's Brewery, on Leary Ave.).

Seattlites best know Eaton as the illustrator of The Stranger's I Love Television column, as well as the editorial cartoonist for the Beacon Hill News. Comic fans know him best for a slew of Fantagraphics releases over the last decade and a half.

Patrick Rosenkranz, comix historian and the author of the comprehensive tome Rebel Visions: The Underground Comix Revolution 1963-1975, will give a lecture about R.
