Mark Frauenfelder interviews Ed Piskor at Meltdown Comics
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under interviewsinterviewEd Piskor 1 Dec 2014 2:35 PM
Mark and Ed
During Ed Piskor's West Coast tour he hit up Meltdown Comics on sassy afternoon for a signing and while he was there, Boing Boing cofounder Mark Frauenfelder sat down to interview the cartoonist of Hip Hop Family Tree. Piskor's comic strip has been serialized on Boing Boing for the past two and half years and this was the first time he had met Mark. 

Sit back or sit up and draw to this nice 45 minute interview covering Piskor's backstory, drawing style and the research behind Hip Hop Family Tree. "I consider myself more than a cartoonist but also an archeologist on this project or more like a curator." –Ed Piskor 
Hip Hop Family Tree 
Ed's busy plugging away, finishing up the design elements for Volume 3 and continueing to draw strips for Boing Boing aka future volume 4!

 Ron Rege

Ron Regé, Jr has the esteemed pleasure of being named the Cinders Gallery Artist of the Month! Cinders interviews Regé all about his comics creative process, his band Lavender Diamond, magick and even the last good movie he saw (a 1981 animated film, Ferherlofia aka Son of the White Mare). You'll notice that Rege is also sporting a very UNIQUE pair of leggings made from his Cartoon Utopia cover. The leggings are almost as hypnotizing as the book!

Think you have all the Regé books and what not out there? Cinders also has a limited edition print available on their site, there are only 30 left so get one now!

Gary Groth: Stranger Genius Nominee Uncovered
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Things to seeThe StrangerinterviewsinterviewGary Grothawards 11 Jun 2014 5:11 PM
Gary
Last month we found out one of our founders, Gary Groth, was up for a Genius Award in Literature from local and cool-as-hell alt-weekly paper, The Stranger. This week articles about all the nominees  appeared online and in the print version so you can get to know them and their genius.
 
Gary's acerbic rage-writings of the 80s and 90s are referenced in the article by Paul Constant. Constant asked Gary if he was less angry now but since Fantagraphics started making the comics he wanted to read and are at most bookstores...Constant wrote it best. "that there was always more work to do, but it was clear to everyone that, yes, the century-long fight for the soul of American comics is over, and Gary Groth won."
 
On October 18, The Stranger will throw a huge, drunken party for all 15 finalists at the Moore Theatre (tickets here), with the Seattle Rock Orchestra and other live performances, and five of the finalists (one from each category) will go home with $5,000 each, no strings attached.
