Questions for Cartoonists: Sam Alden — Darling Sleeper

I try and get as much work done in the morning as possible, run my errands and do normal person stuff in the afternoon, and then squeeze in a few more hours of work after dinner. When I’m on deadline for something I work throughout the day. The Digital Comic Museum - Free and Public Domain Comic Books. The astonishingly incompetent superhero art of Fletcher Hanks. The other day I was trying to describe the work of Fletcher Hanks to a comics collector friend of mine, a fan of Spider-Man and the X-Men and Daredevil, and I made the following analogy: Fletcher Hanks is the Shaggs of superhero comics…. they have the same combination of fascinating (ahem) “excellence” and off-putting weirdness, the same feeling of a direction very much not taken, the same outsider status, the same fervent adoption by devotees.

The astonishingly incompetent superhero art of Fletcher Hanks

Hanks drew superhero comics for a terribly short time—1939 to 1941—before dropping off the map altogether. It’s a bit of a miracle that we have so many of his comics in print, and much of that is due to the heroic labors of Paul Karasik, a former RAW employee of Art Spiegelman’s who also collaborated with David Mazzucchelli to create a graphic novel version of Paul Auster’s novel City of Glass in 1994. Hanks was born in 1887. We know he was married and had a son but then packed up and left around 1930.

Chris Ware reinventa el cómic

Los medios anglosajones llevan disfrutando de él más de un año y alguno ya lo ha definido como el Ulises de James Joyce de la novela gráfica. Sin embargo, una vez se destapa la enorme caja (sí, es una caja) de Fabricar historias (Reservoir Books), que caprichosamente Chris Ware (Omaha, EEUU, 1967) hace repetir al milímetro a todas las editoriales del mundo que se atreven a publicar esta maravilla (60 euros), sólo podemos caer en el asombro y tratar de definir el trabajo como todo lo que no es. Evidentemente, no es un libro ni una caja de juegos reunidos. Ilustraciones de Philippe Caza.

As you may know, Matt and I have been the series editors for the Best American Comics (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) for the past six years. That means that, every year, we tried to get our hands on every comic published by a North American cartoonist (which is the USA, Canada, and Mexico), or anyone who makes his or her home here, and then read them all to sort out the best 100 or so comics of the year.

The Nordic Network for Comics Research, NNCORE, is funded by the The Danish Council for Independent Research | Humanities for a two year period starting from September 2011, and the activities will culminate in an international conference to be held at the University of Helsinki, in the spring of 2013.

NNCORE consists of members from all the Nordic countries and Estonia, including both junior and senior scholars, who all have comics as an important component in their work. At the Helsinki conference the NNCORE members present decided to create an interim board to manage the transition of NNCORE from externally funded research network to a full-blown association from 2014. The interim board will meet in the fall of 2013 and soon thereafter we will post more information about the future of NNCORE. Töpfferiana. Reprodukt.
