Two Midwest exhibits
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Zak SallyWill ElderHarvey Kurtzmanevents 30 Jun 2008 2:26 PM

The Daily Cross Hatch has word on "Zines of the Cities," a great-looking retrospective of Minneapolis/Saint Paul zines now on display at the Stevens Square Center for the Arts gallery (1905 3rd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404), featuring work by Zak Sally and Mr. Mike (no relation) among many others.

And the Star Clipper Blog clues us in to the Mad Magazine Exhibit, currently on display at the St. Louis Artists' Guild in Clayton, MO. It's not stated which artists are included in the exhibit (Kurtzman? Elder?) or even what era, if any, the exhibit focuses on, but admission is free so it won't cost you nothin' to find out.

Blogosphere roundup for 6/27/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviews 27 Jun 2008 1:38 PM

Our ego-surfing results for the week:

Independent Weekly profiles Robert Pollard, visual artist, as collected in Town of Mirrors (link via Largehearted Boy)

• Speaking of Largehearted Boy, Dash Shaw's Bottomless Belly Button is included in LHB's "Summer Reading Suggestions." More BBB coverage includes a profile of Dash in Canada's National Post, a starred review from Publishers Weekly (scroll to the bottom), a review by The Daily Cross Hatch, the previously-linked mention in the Wall Street Journal, another profile (alongside Jason Lutes and Guy Delisle) in the Christian Science Monitor, and Kevin Church calling the book "easily the best graphic novel of the year so far." Whew!

• Via The Comics Reporter, a passel of links to Daada Books' reviews of Acme Novelty Library #16 by Chris Ware; Mome; Monologues for the Coming Plague by Anders Nilsen; and Outlaws, Rebels, Freethinkers & Pirates by Bob Levin

• Speaking of Levin, Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter says Levin's Most Outrageous is "Maybe The Best Book About Comics Ever." Meanwhile, Levin announces that Most Outrageous is banned in California state prisons (via Journalista)

• More French love for Linda Medley, as the French edition of Castle Waiting is named one of "20 Essential Albums for Summer 2008" by l’Association des Critiques de Bandes Dessinées (Google translation)

Publishers Weekly gives an industry-focused take on the forthcoming Love and Rockets: New Stories

• Speaking of L&R, here's PrettyFakes on The Education of Hopey Glass by Jaime Hernandez

Icats Nitram, on a roll lately, looks at Richard Sala's Delphine #1

Comic Book Galaxy's Alan David Doane says Patrick Rosenkranz's Rebel Visions is "one of the greatest historical recountings ever dedicated to the artform"

Sean T. Collins presents his 2005 Comics Journal review of Marc Bell's (unfortunately out-of-print) Worn Tuff Elbow

Our hometown alt-weekly, the coincidentally-named Stranger, looks at Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko by Blake Bell

Shuffleboil on the most recent volume of The Complete Peanuts

• Not to be outdone by the WSJ in comics coverage, The Fort Worth Business Press looks at two recent Popeye collections: ours, of E.C. Segar's original comic strips, and Warner's DVD collections of the Fleischer cartoons

du9 on Thomas Ott's The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8

Matthew Brady on Billy Hazelnuts by Tony Millionaire

Bagge in Portland OR, TONIGHT & this weekend
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Peter Baggeevents 27 Jun 2008 10:49 AM

Peter Bagge writes and sez:

It'll be an event-clogged weekend in PDX for me this upcoming weekend, all revolving around a 2 day, all-day teaching seminar I'll be holding at the Portland Northwest College of Art on Sat, June 28th and Sun. June 29th (Jessica Abel, Matt Madden and Daniel Dufford will be teaching courses there all this week as well).

I also will be signing copies of the APOCALYPSE NERD book collection at Powell's bookstore on Friday the 27th at 7:30 PM.

On Saturday the 28th at 5pm, I'm scheduled to take part in an "Interactive discussion with comic creators" at the Someday Lounge, though no mention of it is made on their website so attend at your own risk!

Right after that, from 7 - 9 pm, the nearby Floating World comic shop will be holding a "closing" party for a group art show featuring work by JR Williams, Mats?!, David Chelsea and myself (we'll all be in attendance except for Mats?!). Floating World's website appears to be down at the moment, but you can get all the info you need from their MySpace Page.
