Pine Tree

Hi there, today it's Tuesday and Joe's day as well. Here's the week in comics.

Today I am opening an exhibition in all three Mathew Marks Gallery spaces on 22nd st. here in New York, and tomorrow I'm interviewing the Hairy Who. Come on out.

In comics news, my hometown comic book store owner, very first employer, and conveyor of the Gospels of Rick Griffin and Dean Cornwell, get the profile celebration treatment.

Grant Morrison's career gets even worse, as becomes the new editor of Heavy Metal, which would be funny and "out there" if it wasn't also true. Everyone knows that Heavy Metal was only good for the French stuff and Richard Corben, and that's all gone. It's a pretty lousy brand, which I think the ad nicely exemplifies.

Paul Karasik has a new piece of comic strip reportage for you.

That is all!
