Interview : Maud Amoretti, auteure de bandes dessinées – Nina a lu Maud Amoretti, auteure de BD J’ai eu le plaisir de rencontrer Maud lorsque j’étais en alternance chez Ankama éditions. J’avais beaucoup aimé le style et la sensibilité de sa Burlesque Girrrl. Je souhaitais vous faire découvrir son parcours, ses albums, son expérience en tant qu’auteure publiée, et ce qu’elle pense du mouvement #payetonauteur et de la reconnaissance des auteurs. Mais surtout, puisque Maud a décidé de quitter le monde de la BD, elle nous livre un témoignage très intéressant qui invite à la réflexion… Peux-tu nous parler de ton parcours ?

Arrested Motion Gallery - Original Sketches These are "Prelims" Sketches that John Berkey has done over the years. These were rough sketches sent out to the client to approve for angle, color, content... Some of these were selected to be used as finals for John Berkey to paint from and some were never used as finals at all. These sketches were sent to the client and were handled by many people for review, so they might have pencil marks, scratches, dents and other imperfections on them. Some were signed when they were created and would be marked on this sheet as OS (Originally Signed) others are marked by SA which were signed later by John Berkey as they were being cataloged into the estate. And some were not signed at all and are marked NS.

Comic Art Community - Comic Art Chat and Art Gallery Art Spiegelman: golden age superheroes were shaped by the rise of fascism Back in the benighted 20th century comic books were seen as subliterate trash for kiddies and intellectually challenged adults – badly written, hastily drawn and execrably printed. Martin Goodman, the founder and publisher of what is now known as Marvel Comics, once told Stan Lee that there was no point in trying to make the stories literate or worry about character development: “Just give them a lot of action and don’t use too many words.” It’s a genuine marvel that this formula led to works that were so resonant and vital. The comic book format can be credited to a printing salesman, Maxwell Gaines, looking for a way to keep newspaper supplement presses rolling in 1933 by reprinting collections of popular newspaper comic strips in a half-tabloid format. As an experiment, he slapped a 10 cents sticker on a handful of the free pamphlets and saw them quickly sell out at a local newsstand. William Blake “Bill” Everett, Burgos’s comrade at Funnies, Inc, was an oddity in comics.

Scenes from Inside Aleppo: How Life Has Been Transformed by Rebel Rule A Syrian writer revisits the city he attended college in, with sketches by Molly Crabapple. I first moved to Aleppo 10 years ago. At that time, the city was the world for me: the glorious past and the present, the bitter and the sweet. I attended university in mid-Aleppo’s wealthy neighborhoods. To get there, I took the bus from my apartment in the crowded Al-Myassar, one of Aleppo’s poorest slums. We rode by the ancient gates of Bab Al-Hadid and Bab Al-Nasr, through which the Silk Road once curved.
