The email one gets when one works at a comics publisher is way more fun than the email one gets when one works at, say, a shoe company.

The Jackass Story
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jeremy Eaton 9 Sep 2008 8:54 AM

During those heady mid-1990s, Seattle's The Stranger (which has employed, at times, a slew of comics-related folks, from co-founder James Sturm, to former art directors Jason Lutes, Joe Newton, and Dale Yarger, and columnists like Tom Spurgeon and yours truly) was a hotbed for local cartooning. Strips would come and go and you could always count on the paper's back page for some quality cartoons. One of my all-time favorite Stranger strips was a short-lived feature by Jeremy Eaton, called Jackass. This surreal gem featured a disembodied head at the mercy of Eaton's imagination, and the results were always a great blend of humor, Dada, and handsome cartooning.

The reason I mention the strip is that Eaton has written a pretty great post-mortem of the strip, ten years later, featuring everything you could possibly hope to learn about Eaton's process along the way. Once you're done reading it, go buy the collection from our own Jason T. Miles' press, Drink Me.  

 

Mmm, Delicious
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 8 Sep 2008 4:57 PM
As if we don't already have enough social networks to keep track of, we're now on the "social bookmarking" site Delicious! We've been bringing you our weekly "Blogosphere Roundup" link posts for a while, and we thought it might be nice if the links could be searchable and organized with tags so you can find related links (for instance, all the reviews of a certain book, or links pertaining to a particular artist). We'll still bring you our roundup posts every week, but now you can follow along in real time on our Delicious page or with the RSS feed.

Here's a slightly belated look at the two ultimate entries (until we go back and reprint the early Eclipse volumes) in our Krazy & Ignatz series of Krazy Kat reprint volumes: 1943-1944 (top) and The Complete Sunday Strips 1935-1944, the giant hardcover compiling the last 5 volumes (bottom).

Dan Clowes did not draw this...
