Frank Santoro is a very insightful and concise writer of complex ideas in comics. I consider it a failing that I don't 'get' his work so much. Read this thread.
Giant Robot Biennale: 50 Issues is opening at the JANM this Saturday (L.A.).
I love the paintings of Alexia Stamatiou. If you're in Boston, she has a show opening tonight at the Allston Skirt Gallery.
I was totally unfamiliar with Dash Shaw until his 720 page graphic novel showed up on my desk (to be published by Fantagraphics next season). And I confess I haven't made it through the book yet but just reading what I have I'm sold that this is going to be an amazing book that will create a hell of a lot of Shaw fans. Mike Baehr also pointed me to his weirdo drawings of Ninja Turtles from his childhood. And I repeat: 720 pages!
How awesome is Tove Jansson? Very.
