Comics in zer Deutsch?

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.

Joe has also written about the artist extensively here and here and here and here!

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.

And more:

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.

    Perhaps of interest if no one else has passed it on… Ego Comme X, publisher of French mostly autobio work (most famously Neaud’s Journals), just announced they are closing down: http://www.ego-comme-x.com/spip.php?article860 (though it’s been awhile since they published anything new).

    Chick tracts: by and for the same sort of individuals ridiculed by Ennis & Dillon (RIP) in the “Where is your chin?!” scene.
