New Arrivals: Wandering Son V08

The spine/etc is aqua. I really want to get back to reading this before the summer is over. A while back, I thought I ordered Wandering son v08 right along with v07, but when I looked at my order history on Fantagraphics, the last order listed was v07 with v08 nowhere to be found. I […]

New Arrivals: Wandering Son V06

I picked up v06 from the post office today. This spine is reminiscent of pumpkin pie or weather beaten marigold. I included a bonus shot of the series so far. The first three colors are romper room colors and the most recent three are rather autumnal—they make me a bit hungry for Thanksgiving food. I’ve […]

New Arrivals: Wandering Son V05

My trip to the Post Office netted me volume 5! When I received the first three, I thought Fantagraphics decided to use colors similar to the Japanese volumes’ title colors to determine the accent color for the English release, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The colors of the titles of the first […]

New Arrivals: Wandering Son V04

Particularly for a relatively niche genre or subject matter. I get that the longer a series goes […]

Daniel Clowes: Modern Cartoonist: The Naked Truth

An essay by Daniel Clowes. This was originally published in 1997. Many, actually, most of the points he brings up still ring true and a lot of the questions he asks still have no answer. Aside from an increase in amateur and hobbyist comic showcase outlets and more people viewing comics as something worthy of discussion rather […]

New Arrivals: A Drunken Dream and Other Stories

I went to the Post Office to price the shipping on the C8YDG prizes and, in addition to an unexpected postcard (hehe), look what was waiting for me: Hagio Moto’s A Drunken Dream and Other Stories. It took FOREVER for them to arrive. I ordered them in May. I bugged them periodically, asking if they […]
