Today on the site we have Rob Clough on some selected periodical comics of all shapes and sizes.
The big news is, of course, the end of Matt Groening’s long and excellent comic strip, Life in Hell. Here’s TCJ-contributor Richard Gehr’s interview with the artist, and here’s a short appreciation by Tom Spurgeon.
Benjamen Walker has a wonderful radio report on the gathering of the comic book tribes last month in Chicago. Two more from Chicago, this time from last weekend’s inaugural CAKE: A wrap-up from Secret Acres and a very funny travelogue from D&Q’s Jessica Campbell.
Elsewhere in the midwest we find this interview with Joseph Remnant and Jeff Newelt on Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland.
And a couple of excellent image-based posts: Who knew that the great Seymour Chwast took a crack at redesigning the Bazooka Joe graphics? And Greg Cook visited Brian Chippendale’s studio; I can tell you that these pictures are real.
