Hank the Artist the Toy collab with Joey Fanoele

I worked with Joey Fanoele (his new comic "Coral" is out now from Wig Shop) to design a toy based on his character Hank from his comic "Hank the Artist". The toys are out now and I have limited numbers of the comic to bundle with some orders.

Finding Alt Comix

How do you all keep up on various alt comix or find out about things you might be into? I want to dive harder into alts like I used to in college but there feels like so much more signal noise now. Sites or ideas appreciated (a version of this question appears on indie comics too)

Black-and-white comics in color?

I know, I know! Coloring comics that were intended to be black and white is generally frowned upon for understandable reasons, but please hear me out!

Recently I found this colored panel from Maus online that made me think: there are some classic black-and-white comics that I know pretty much inside out and would live to see them in color. Not to replace the original black-and-white version but as an experiment and to experience those comics in a new way.

Some black-and-white comics that I would love to see in color: the already mentioned Maus, Black Hole, Here (the original 6-page b&w version), and the manga Yotsuba.

What do you think? Are there any black-and-white comics you love that you would like to see in color, not to replace the original but just to see what it looks like that way?

Two news about Richard McGuire (creator of "Here")

  1. An exhibition about the works of Richard McGuire will open in Basel, Switzerland next month, and more interestingly, connected to that exhibition, an artbook titled "Richard McGuire - Then and There, Here and Now" will be published. (ISBN 978-3-03969-024-4) Hopefully it will include many of his short comics!
  2. Apparently, McGuire is working on a new graphic novel (his first since "Here" a decade ago) "that will fuse visual art and music". (Source: at the end of the description here.)

Sometimes, people just shouldn't do the things they say are great. In reality, the things are horrible and they've merely talked themselves into letting others hurt them. LUNCH HOUR! Coming to you on WEDNESDAYS NOON-1PM PST - STREAMING!
