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.

Flora's Incredible Flutist
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jim Floraart 28 Apr 2008 11:29 AM

The Incredible Flutist - Jim Flora

News from Jim Flora archivist Irwin Chusid:

The Incredible Flutist is an uncirculated 1953-54 record cover painting by Flora that was intended for a 7-inch RCA Victor EP. Jim Flora Art LLC is offering a limited edition fine art print.

According to a purchase order discovered in the Flora archives, the work was commissioned by RCA in late 1953, but there's no indication it was finished, accepted, or used on a commercially released EP. This painting has not previously been published or offered in any form. An alternate version appeared in the book The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora.

Only 20 numbered prints of this work have been produced. Following the sale of two launch prints, edition prints are available for sale at JimFlora.com.

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:

Bob Levin talks to Tom Spurgeon
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Bob Levin 28 Apr 2008 9:04 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."
