I’m back from the Frankfurt Book Fair. There are still books, don’t worry. I saw Joost Swarte from afar, but that was as close as I got to comics, really.
Today on the site:
Jack Chick, the mystery man of religious tracts, has passed away. Joe McCulloch has written our obituary.
The best long form take on Chick (and one of the best texts about comics, period) is by Daniel Raeburn. He’s kindly posted a PDF here.
Garth Ennis pays tribute to his late collaborator Steve Dillon.
Chris Mautner writes eloquently about Ta-Nehisi Coates’ current run on Black Panther.
Also, The Economist discusses comics journalism.
