Jim Woodring Art Sale!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jim Woodring 1 Nov 2007 2:14 PM
JIM WOODRING'S IVORY TOWER ART OUTLET is offering a slew of new paintings and drawings for sale at great prices. So great, in fact, that my wife and I just decided to buy this one for each other for Christmas:



Jim Woodring is cooler than Santa Claus.



Me: Talking Designer. You: Fascinated.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under staffKovey Korner 1 Nov 2007 2:08 PM
Jacob Covey speaks at WWU on 11/13/07
I'm very pleased to be a part of the AIGA speaker series at my alma mater next Tuesday evening. I'll be talking about my adventures in graphic design and giving helpful advice on what I've learned through costing my employers thousands of dollars via production screw ups. (My personal low: Typing the wrong contact information on every single page of an international sales catalog while, apparently, the copy editors slept.)

Tips on nepotism, back-stabbing, and charming self-deprecation to follow in the Q & A portion.

If you're in the area please come out. I'm begging you.

[Note: Eric, please stop making fun of me. I know it's ridiculous to put my name in 750 point type.]

Mark Todd at La Luz
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Kovey Korner 1 Nov 2007 10:42 AM
Mark Todd has a great looking exhibit opening tomorrow at La Luz de Jesus in LA. Shake the artists hand and enjoy his Marvel homages. I love his weird The Thing egg (or origin story if you will).

[For now I can't get images to load. Damned Blogger.]

New Release: The Comics Journal #286
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under The Comics Journalnew releases 1 Nov 2007 8:11 AM


The Comics Journal #286

Our cover this issue spotlights Paul Gravett's extensive and fascinating conversation with one of Britain's national treasures, Gemma Bovary author Posy Simmonds. It's a career-spanning discussion ranging from Simmonds' early days as a compulsive comicker to her career at The Guardian, her children's books, all the way to her forthcoming graphic novel Tamara Drewe. (Click here to read a lengthy series of excerpts from the interview.)

Join Shaenon Garrity for a chat with one of the finest writers currently working in genre comics, Wonder Woman scribe Gail Simone. The two discuss Simone's controversial "Women in Refrigerators" investigation, her unlikely entry into the comics world, her early work for Bongo and Marvel, and her fan-favorite run on such DC Comics titles as Birds of Prey, Action Comics and Welcome to Tranquility. (Excerpts? But of course! Click here to get the inside scoop on the Women in Refrigerators phenomenon!)

Our comics section this issue offers a generous collection of episodes from Otto Soglow's rarely seen, hilariously absurd newspaper strip The Ambassador. (Click here to read part of Jared Gardner's informative introduction to the comics.)

Also: R. Fiore on DC Comics' recent attempts to revitalize such classic characters as Captain Marvel and The Spirit, R.C. Harvey on the impact of legacy strips in the newspaper comics page, and much more. Don't forget to pick up a copy of the best magazine about comics this fine nation has to offer, The Comics Journal!

My Crazy Dad!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under reviews 31 Oct 2007 2:27 PM

I have no idea who Luke Maxwell is, and I'd be hard-pressed to say he has any real talent for cartooning, but this comic strip, titled "My Crazy Dad!" is nonetheless one of the best comics I've read in while and I crave more. I've read it at least three times now since my pal Jason Grote first tipped me to it.
Blah blah blah
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under reviews 31 Oct 2007 1:37 PM
Been meaning to write reviews of things I like but just can't seem to stay on top of it, I can't write as fast as I read, and not enough things that I read engage enough to want to sit down and write about them. But Jacob's Cold Heat post inspired me to mention a few things, real quick-like...

Cold Heat Special by Jon Vermilyea - What Jacob said below. This special issue of the Cold Heat series is way better than any of the other issues, which frankly kind of mystify me (and my pal Dan Nadel's unabashed enthusiasm for it only makes me feel like some kind of lame dilletante for not getting it). But this is just a great comic book by Jon Vermilyea, accessible to just about anyone (and not contigent upon having any familiarity with Cold Heat), and the 16" x 23" silkscreened cover is so fucking attractive that I want to frame it. I'm not sure the art on the inside needed to be this big (11 1/2" x 16" or so), but the treatment is worth it for the cover, and the inside tells a genuinely charming story that would work at any size, and reminded me of some of Jaime Hernandez's or Jordan Crane's more fantastical work. I really liked it. If this had been submitted to me for Mome, I would have jumped for joy upon reading it.
