Slowing Down

Do you feel the summer sun burning your neck? I do. It’s burning my brain, too. That said, this is a quick one, folks, because… my lord, isn’t there enough to read on this site already? C’mon!

Today we have A Dan Clowes Notebook by Mr. Jeet Heer:

From Lloyd Llewellyn to Mr. and Mrs. Ames, Clowes has often featured detectives in his stories, not to mention many amateur clue-hunters such as Clay Loudermilk  and David Boring. Another variation of this are the characters who are not quite detectives or clue-hunters but like to spy on other people: Random Walker, Violet, and Charles in Ice Haven are good examples.

And on the other end of the spectrum (well, sort of: A no-prize to the reader who can guess the link between Mike Allred and Dan Clowes without clicking through!) we have Nicholas Gazin on Mike Allred’s latest effort.

Elsewhere in the universe, here’s a nice profile of the great Canadian graphic artist Martin Vaughn-James.

And that’s all. Go outside!

    Dan, I live in Florida, it’s kind of hot here. Telling me to “go outside” is kind of like telling me to, “go to hell.”

    Don’t know if you guys saw this, but the AV Club has a short video tour of the Fantagraphics office (with appearances by Gary Groth and Peter Bagge) as part of their Pop Pilgrims series:

    It’s pretty cool and figured you might want to include the link in one of your posts.
