On the site today:
Michel Fiffe interviews Jason Latour on art, commerce, and working for Marvel. I enjoy Latour’s art, and Fiffe has some good thoughts on the work and his own relationship to it. Check it out.
Did you hear the one about a box of Storeyvilles? I did, and now you will. Copacetic Comics has a box of the original printing of Frank Santoro’s Storeyville in stock now, complete with an awesome run down on it. This is a must-have for the impossible-to-replicate printing alone, and I thought so long before I ever knew Frank.
The second issue of my favorite new anthology, Thickness, is now for sale online.
Jim Rugg has some words on Sam Kieth. I also have a real fondness for his utterly gnarly drawing style.
Jon Lewis gives us humans a new True Swamp.
In art news, Gary Panter is opening a show of paintings tonight at Fredericks and Freiser in NYC. And next week Seth is opening “The Great Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists” at Adam Baumgold Gallery, and you can head over to the web site now and take a gander. That is one handsome exhibition poster.
