Online Commentary & Diversions:
• Review: "Ultimately, ...despite the refreshing sexual frankness that Hernandez proceeds with, there is much sadness and heartbreak throughout [High Soft Lisp]. ...[O]ne wonders if the lingering bittersweetness at the end makes more sense in middle age, than it would in youth... Good stuff, of course." – Mark London Williams, The SF Site: Nexus Graphica
• Profile: NBC New York's Courtney Humiston reports from Dash Shaw & Frank Santoro's discussion at NYC's McNally Jackson bookstore a couple of days ago: "The two artists discussed the creative process: 'photo references are for suckers,' says Santoro; why Japanese comics are better: 'I like that the drawings are sh---y,' says Shaw. 'They care more about telling the story than how to draw eyes'; and why even the old ladies in France love comic books: 'It's weird that [at conventions in Europe] not everyone has tattoos,' says Santoro."
