Trina Robbins talks Nell Brinkley from Gavin Lees on Vimeo.

If you happened to miss the delightful and informative slideshow talk the wonderful Trina Robbins gave about the great Nell Brinkley at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery back on October 8 (for instance, if you were at the Art Spiegelman talk that happened at the same time, or if you don't live nearby), never fear, our good friend and The Comics Journal contributor Gavin Lees captured it on video — watch above or over at his website Graphic Eye.

The Haves and the Have Nots with Megan Kelso

Does having it all ever equal happiness?

That is the question that Fantagraphics artist Megan Kelso will be addressing this Friday, October 28th at the Richard Hugo House in Seattle.

It's the first of four Hugo Literary Series evenings, with Megan joined by National Book Award-winning novelist and philosopher Charles Johnson, and queer spoken word luminary Tara Hardy, with music presented by David Nixon from the band "Awesome."

Together, they'll be exploring the theme of "The Haves and the Have Nots," and you can join them starting at 7:30 PM at the Richard Hugo House [ 1634 11th Avenue, Seattle ]. Both series passes and individual tickets are available.

Daily OCD: 10/21/11
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under The Comics JournalreviewsLove and RocketsLos Bros HernandezKevin HuizengaJaime HernandezIgnatz SeriesGilbert HernandezDave McKeanDaniel ClowesDaily OCD 21 Oct 2011 6:08 PM

Today's Online Commentary & Diversions:

Ganges #4

Review: "Ganges #4 is the Godfather Part II of comics about insomnia: the rare sequel that tops the already excellent original.... Here he returns to the sleeplessness well, but this time around Glenn’s mental avatar remains relatively stationary (though Glenn himself does plenty of wandering around the Ganges family manse), allowing Huizenga to instead burrow down deep into some of the most unpleasant sensations a bored and overtired brain is able to conjure. Folks, he does this so well.... The... comic maintains [a] dizzying blend of writing and drawing power, with alarmingly familiar sensations reproduced, and stop-and-marvel visual effects created, on nearly every page." – Sean T. Collins, The Comics Journal

The Comics Journal #301

Review: "When did The Comics Journal get so freakin' fat? Weighing in at one and a half pounds, this 624 page sucker features more of what you love (or hate) about comics criticism: long, detailed interviews and reviews that will take you days to read." – Chris Auman, Reglar Wiglar

Celluloid

Review: "Dave McKean’s art never fails to amaze me... At one point, as she goes deeper and deeper into the film, the woman encounters a fourteen-breasted being, and they have sex. McKean mixes images of real fruit with his drawings and color to create sexual images that are as fresh as they are startling. I’ll never look at a fig, a pear, or a red tomatillo the same way again. ...I think [Celluloid] would make a good paper anniversary gift." – Gene Ambaum, The Unshelved Book Club

Ghost World

Review: "In Ghost World, Daniel Clowes doesn’t romanticize the teenage experience or show teenage girls as sweet and idealistic. His portrayal is raw, cynical, and honest, often hitting the nail on the head.... It’s an excellent portrayal of alienation, especially teenage alienation. Even when Enid and Rebecca aren’t being nice, they’re still understandable. This graphic novel is very funny, but it’s also very sad, and sometimes it’s both at the same time.... Though it’s only 80 pages long, this graphic novel still manages to leave a deep impression." – Danica Davidson, Graphic Novel Reporter

Love and Rockets: New Stories #4

Commentary: At Robot 6, Sean T. Collins concludes his impromptu week-long focus on Love and Rockets: New Stories #4 by encouraging new readers not to be intimidated by the cumulative volume of the series: "The point is that both Jaime and Gilbert have produced massive, high-quality bodies of work, with multiple, affordable collections, each of which contains a story or two fit to knock your block off. If you love reading good comics, and chances are good that you do if you’re reading this blog at all, that’s not intimidating — that’s inviting!"

Daily OCD Extra: Mark Twain & Michael Kupperman speak

• Above, Michael Kupperman gives a snippet of his Mark Twain impersonation for the Traveling with Twain project (dance, Twain, dance!)
