Stumble Year

Mike Dawson’s got a new episode of TCJ Talkies up, this time interviewing the cartoonist Box Brown about starting up his own publishing venture, Retrofit.

And Emily Flake is in day three of her Cartoonist’s Diary week. Now it’s exercise time.

Three of our regular contributors—Joe McCulloch, Matt Seneca, and Tucker Stone—have appeared on the Inkstuds radio show to talk about comics for three hours. I haven’t been able to listen to this yet, but with that lineup I’m sure it’s fantastic.

Speaking of podcasts, I don’t think we’ve mentioned yet that Comix Claptrap is back, and has a good interview with Tom Hart about starting up SAW in Gainesville.

Bill Kartalopoulos reviewed the latest Kramers Ergot anthology over at Print, and Brad Mackay reviewed Someday Funnies over at the Globe and Mail.

Fan blogger Colin Smith has an interesting post about reading Seth’s It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken and realizing that at lot of the biases and prejudices he’d always attributed to Seth weren’t actually in evidence.

Via Frank Santoro, here‘s Rob Liefeld.
