Bye Binky

Today on the site we have Rob Clough on some selected periodical comics of all shapes and sizes.

Elsewhere:

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.
