The more things change...
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under miscellany 28 May 2008 9:48 AM
... the more they stay the same. Bryan Lee O'Malley justly eviscerates Tokyopop's new contracts, while Jack Kirby spins.
The Austin-American Menace
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under miscellanyDennis the Menace 21 May 2008 11:16 AM
My pal Jeff Salamon has started a books blog for the Austin American Statesman. It's mostly local literary news, not necessarily much comics talk, but you simply have to love the graphic sig that he created for the top of it:
 


New Yorker cartoons minus the cartoons
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under miscellany 12 May 2008 11:22 AM
In the tradition of such internet memes as Garfield without the thought balloons and Garfield without Garfield, now there's New Yorker cartoons without the drawings.
Graham Lineham of IT Crowd
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under miscellany 12 May 2008 9:50 AM

I enjoyed this interview with IT Crowd creator Graham Lineham. Especially this incredibly flattering quote: 

"The thing I'm happiest about is getting lots of Fantagraphics comics onto the set and also lots of Guided By Voices records." 

I am a nerd.

Reffer Madness
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under miscellany 8 May 2008 8:30 PM

I had to report to jury duty last week, and in the "jury assembly room" that had a large wall of posters for theater and art shows around town. They also had a sheet where you could sign up to reserve a poster when it came down. Only two posters had been reserved, apparently by a hippie who can't spell (I blocked out the guy's last name and phone number):

I tease; the guy had good taste. All the other posters were lame. 

Dave Sim, Inkstud
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under miscellany 5 May 2008 8:31 AM

Robin McConnell over at the Inkstuds blog has posted a letter that Dave Sim is sending out to anyone that wishes to correspond with him. He is requesting that if you want to correspond with him, you must agree that he is not a misogynist. This should go well. We're really not making this up:

Remember the good ol' days? When a gun was never out of reach of any child's finger and bullets were still considered toys?

I slept through the night in those days.

Heroes & Villians at CHG this Tuesday
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under miscellanyJordan Crane 17 Apr 2008 7:49 PM

Heroes & Villians is a photo series by Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho that "features intimate portraits of the most notable emerging and established figures in the Pop Surrealist, Graffiti and Alt-Comic Book worlds."

I would contest their designation of THE most notable but it is cool to see them documenting SOME of the most notable artists working. Pictured above is the enchanting Jordan Crane. Visit Cho's site for a peek at more comics folks like Anders Nilsen, Johnny Ryan, Sammy Harkham, Souther Salazar, Ron Rege, Jr., and Steven Weissman.

UPDATE: I failed to mention that the show is 2 days only, opening this Tuesday at Corey Helford Gallery .
