Carol Tyler Keynote Speaker at the University of Florida!
Written by janice headley | Filed under eventsCarol Tyler 31 Mar 2014 9:36 AM

For their 11th annual University of Florida Conference on Comics and Graphic Novels, the Graduate Comics Organization will look at "Traumics: Comics Narratives of Trauma."

And presenting one of their keynote speakers is noneother than our very own Carol Tyler, and on Saturday, April 5th, she will present a talk on "Graphic Emotion: Weighted Words and Moving Marks" at 7:00 PM, with a reception to follow at 8:30 PM with drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Surely, anyone who has read Tyler's series, You'll Never Know, her graphic memoir focusing on the artist's father and his experiences in World War II, knows that she's an expert on graphic emotion!

On Sunday, April 6th, Carol will lead an artist's workshop titled "Comics: Getting Down to Basics" at 11:15 AM.

Keynote lectures and receptions will be held in Ustler Hall. All other events will be held in Pugh Hall.  Ustler Hall is located on the University of Florida at the intersection of East West Drive and Fletcher Drive. The conference is FREE and open to the public.

Annie and Verti are two teen cosplayers with too much time on their hands. Annie wants to act, and Verti wants to be a photographer/filmmaker.

A one-shot dose of humor and melancholy from the creator of New School, BodyWorld, and Bottomless Belly Button.

The Complete Peanuts 1991-1992 (Vol. 21)
by Charles M. Schulz

344-page black & white 8.5" x 7" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-726-0

Ships in: May 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

Peanuts enters its final decade, and The Complete Peanuts enters its homestretch, with material that is perhaps the most overlooked of Schulz’s career and soon to be reconsidered by scholars with this volume. Schulz’s cartooning has never looked more confident, and his sense of humor never more unrestrained. This is the 21st volume (of 25) of the perennial, bestselling series that collects every single one of the 18,000-plus Peanuts strips created by Charles M. Schulz, from its debut in 1950 to the end in 2000.

witzend - Cover Uncovered
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under witzendWallace WoodComing Attractions 27 Mar 2014 11:38 AM

witzend

At last we can reveal the slipcase artwork for our two-volume complete collection of witzend, coming this Summer. Occupying the fertile but seldom-trod ground between the undergrounds and the "overground" mainstream (sometimes called "groundlevel comics"), witzend was created in 1966 by Wallace Wood and ran for 13 issues over nearly two decades, providing a forum for unfettered expression by creators used to toiling under commercial restrictions — in other words, a place for Wood and his friends to let their freak flags fly. And oh, what a list of friends he had. We'll get into that later... in the meantime, see how many of them you can identify in this dazzling design! (Presale is pending — there's a Gordian Knot we're still untangling.)

Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter Bagge - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsPeter Baggenew releases 27 Mar 2014 10:56 AM

"I love Hate, particularly the increasingly oddball Buddy Bradley stories.... Every comics fan should have the vast majority of whatever Peter Bagge has in print..." – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

"...Bagge’s vivid caricatures animate the most routine of actions, effectively suggesting how cozily, in this life, the mundane cohabits with the outrageous." – Rich Kreiner, The Comics Journal

"...Bagge truly pulls out all the stops in depicting extreme familial weirdness. His dialogue is as sharp as ever, his line is quite lively and his uncanny ability to depict the creeping weirdness of suburbia is even more disturbing than in the initial run of New Jersey stories in Hate." – Rob Clough, High-Low

"Peter Bagge is the funniest cartoonist in existence." – John Kricfalusi

"It's a laff riot, what can I tell ya?" – R. Crumb

"Folk hero Buddy Bradley defined and transcended grunge-era slackerdom." – Playboy
