Today, we have the fourth installment of Mark Siegel’s tenure at A Cartoonist’s Diary. Anxious Paul Pope fans will want to check this one out.
Dan’s pal and fan-favorite Nick Gazin is back at the site after a long absence, with a photo report on last week’s New York Art Book Fair, which has a stronger comics presence than you might expect.
Finally, Rob Clough has reviewed Glyn Dillon’s first full-length graphic novel, The Nao of Brown.
Elsewhere on the site are a lot of headaches, but moving to other parts of the internet:
—Grantland has a lengthy excerpt from Sean Howe’s must-read Marvel Comics: The Untold Story.
—Gary Panter has some drawing tips. (Via everyone.)
—And Matthias Wivel has a lengthy rant against what he considers to be the mediocrity of New Yorker cartoons. Although some of his complaints are valid (especially about the recent years), I rarely find myself disagreeing with one of Wivel’s pieces as often as I did on this one. Anyway, Wivel’s always worth reading. All the same, I recommend Richard Gehr’s column for this site as an antidote when you’re done.
