It’s Tuesday and that means while you were sleeping Joe McCulloch was writing about the week in comics.

Elsewhere:

TCJ-contributor Nicole Rudick interviews 7 Miles a Second artists James Romberger and Marguerite Van Cook for Artforum.

George Lucas has a proposal for a “Cultural Arts” museum with a heavy illustration and cartooning emphasis, which could be interesting.

Who knows what else is in there…

This the first review I’ve seen of Renee French’s TOON book, Barry’s Best Buddy. I’m looking forward to that book.

Attention Chester Brown: Louis Riel photos found in Australia. That’s a commute.

    I’m eager to read the Warren Bernard article based on the recently released Wertham documents. TCJ #302 still hasn’t shipped though. No doubt it’s just me, but it seems like there was a sudden rush of “historians” trying to get in line ahead of Bernard.

      Just like the old message board days. All we need is Tony Millionaire and voila!
