Speaking of "a whole new approach to comics," what better fits this description than MOME? To any readers who might have felt a creeping worry that MOME wouldn't be able to keep it up, that there simply wasn't enough high calibre new work being produced to keep MOME floating on its lofty plane, let us be first to say that these fears can be laid to rest with this issue, which is arguably the best yet. It starts off with a new Al Columbia piece that (finally) lives up to the promise of his outsized rep. "5:45 A.M." is a story which shows us that, yes, God is in the details. In a mere eight, actionless panels -- more or less a tableaux...
This is a nifty guide to zinemaking and zinestering that is a great primer for anyone who is getting started -- or even thinking of getting started -- down the road of making a zine, whether it be comics or otherwise. It's purposefully designed to be exactly the kind of guide that the authors wished they had when they started out. In covers the practical ins and outs such as formats and print-marriage set ups, the pros and cons of various drawing tools and printing methods, and a wide array of binding methods that one might never think of on one's own. But there's much more as the authors bring in a bevy of talented cartoonists, zinesters...

It's time for comics connoisseurs to crank up their cogitation once again, as a new issue of Ganges is in stock and on sale here at The Copacetic Comics Company. And the verdict? Kevin Huizenga once again delivers the goods! This time around we have the inner workings of an agitated mind – that of Glenn Ganges, to answer your question – at the edge of sleep, visually embodied as its own cartoon being, distinct and separate from – if in many respects identical to – the body housing this mind. All readers who have ever had a rough time falling asleep and have had their mind wander to and fro seemingly of its "own" accord will have plenty to...
Here's the "exclusive" Direct Market (softcover) Edition ofThe Incal!
Perhaps the single greatest science-fiction-adventure bande dessinée series of all time, the six-volumeseries that was originally published in France throughout the 1980s has at last been collected in its entirety in a single 316 pagesoftcover volume for a price that works out to less than $4.50 per volume – barely more than a standard American comic book. Massively influential (see Brian Michael Bendis's introduction cum rant),The Incalhas informed many a popular culture work, across mediums: films, television series, and books, in addition to the countless comics,...
This One Summeris a finely nuanced portrait of pubescents at the dawning of their age of sexuality that will have readers slowing down if not stopping in their tracks to pause and soak up every line of this amazing work. The Tamaki cousins enter Hernandez brothers territory here, with their deftly characterized and deeply empathic portraits of each pen & ink participant in the drama that unfolds on these pages. There are echoes, too, of Charles Burns’sBlack Hole, in the presentation of the protagonists' stumbling upon detritus strewn outdoor settings that stand as a synecdoche forinnocence’s discoveringthe mysteries of sexual...
