Stop Smiling, Crumb
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Crumb 16 Mar 2009 1:28 PM

The new issue of STOP SMILING magazine features a cover interview with R. Crumb. As one might expect from a major Crumb interview, it's a must read.

Holy shit, Friedman, that's fantastic!

Drew Friedman - Cheap Thrills

Drew Friedman captures a watershed moment in comics history. Get the whole story on this piece on Drew's Drawger blog. Damn, I need to subscribe to that.

• Things to see: Happy Friday the 13th from the Jim Flora Blog

• Review: Comics Waiting Room has the first word on Connective Tissue by Bob Fingerman (coming later this Spring), calling it "perversely hysterical"

• Review: PLAYBACK:stl says Tales Designed to Thrizzle #4 by Michael Kupperman "brings more of the crazy"

• Interview: du9 talks Bottomless Belly Button and Bodyworld with Dash Shaw; Belgian site XeroXed reprints the interview (in French) with some additional information

• List: In the holiday spirit, the UCD Advocate's rundown of "Cartoon Sex" names Charles Burns's Black Hole "Creepiest," Robert & Aline Crumb's Self Loathing Comics "Kinkiest," and The Girl from HOPPERS by Jaime Hernandez "Most Realistic"

• Things to see: Two things from Tim Hensley

• Social networking: If you're on the Twitter, you can follow cartoonists Paul Hornschemeier and Mack White; meanwhile, we just got our 1,000th Twitter follower, who appears to be a fictional albatross named Fredrik Lotsie (and you could be our 1,014th)

Alvin Buenaventura's Angoulęme photos: wow
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert CrumbDaniel ClowesChris Ware 11 Feb 2009 4:07 PM

Sauve, 2009

I'm not usually prone to the doom-y flight of fancy, but my first thought upon seeing the photo above was: thank goodness a flaming meteor didn't hit that spot at that moment. L to R: Crumb, Ware, Clowes, Tomine, Buenaventura. Sauve, France, Jan. 27, 2009. Alvin Buenaventura has uploaded many more incredible photos such as above and below, from Sauve and Angoulême, to Flickr. Look for a guest appearance by our very own Jason T. Miles, who promises to post his own Angoulême pics soon.

Things I Learned from Tom Spurgeon This Week
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony MillionaireRobert CrumbRick AltergottJim BlanchardHumbugHarvey KurtzmanDennis the MenaceDash ShawBob Levin 23 Oct 2008 9:45 AM

• Dash Shaw and Tony Millionaire are amongst the the official selections from which the the Festival International de la BD Angouleme main prizes will be drawn from at January's festival. That is very cool.

• Joey Anuff has justified the Internet's existence.

• Charles Crumb, who passed away 14 years ago, is gone but not forgotten

• Rudy Ray Moore is not so far removed from the realm of this blog that it would be inappropriate to lament his passing here. R.I.P., R.R.M. A tip of the fur bucket to Rick Altergott and Jim Blanchard, who first introduced me to Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-In-Law.

• Dennis the Menace cartoonist Marcus Hamilton is a thankful man

• Bob Levin's blog is always worth reading.

Patrick Rosenkranz, comix historian and the author of the comprehensive tome Rebel Visions: The Underground Comix Revolution 1963-1975, will give a lecture about R.

Crumb's Underground," which opened last Friday and continues through Dec. 7 at the Institute of Contemporary Art (118 South 36th Street, Philadelphia) after previous stints in Seattle and California.
