Get there early before the books sells out or else we highly suspect you'll have to fight crowds, zombies and possible commit a misdemeanor. Glimpse into the future provided by Lucy herself here:
Today would have been the 58th birthday of Kim Thompson. Recently I stumbled across this photograph, from the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in 2012, while looking through the Fantagraphics flickr feed; I keep coming back to it. That's Kim with his back to the camera, looking at the work of our friend and former art director, Dale Yarger, who passed away that spring, another wonderful human being we lost to cancer way too soon. It would have been unfathomable at that time to think that Kim, too, would be gone within a year. Yet here we are. That's the great Jim Woodring in the foreground, with an unspeakably reverent look on his face that says more than I could ever hope to write. All three of these gentlemen have loomed large in my life, and this photo awashes me with emotion.
This week's pumpkin-spiced, autumn-colored scrapbook of Online Commentaries and Diversions:
Lisa Hix over at Collectors Weekly sat down with Trina Robbins to talk about women in comics:
"Robbins knows something about the glass ceiling for women cartoonists because she first hit it herself in the early 1970s, when she tried to join the male-dominated 'underground comix' movement based in San Francisco. After the men cartoonists shut her out, Robbins joined forces with other women cartoonists to create their own women's-lib comic books."
"I like doing short stories because I am in turn impulsive and compulsive, and neither of those things are conducive to long projects. Comics, also, are very suited to short stories because of the incredible amount of information that can be delicately conveyed through them." – Zack Smith, Newsarama
"Like many kids who like to draw, Piskor was weaned on superhero comics. Before reaching his teens, he became enamored with the work of independent comics artists and authors, including the Cleveland Heights-based Pekar and his longtime artistic collaborator, R. Crumb." – Sean D. Hamill, Pittsburgh Magazine
It has been a long time coming, but it is our deep pleasure to be able to reveal to you the cover art for Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips Vol. 3: "Evidence to the Contrary". While there are often delays that push back release dates, our production on this book was slowed by the sudden and unexpected passing of our co-editor and co-publisher, Kim Thompson, in June 2013.
There is a sense of bittersweet closure as we finalize this book and ready it for publication. The book should hit bookshelves in mid-December and is available for pre-order now. As ever, collections of these strips would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of devoted Pogo fans. Thank you.
