Recent Stories

You can call this the "all comics/graphic novels" news update:

• Anders Nilsen has been getting lots of press lately. A couple weeks ago he was the cover story on the Chicago Reader (that article made me cry), and that same weekend he was profiled in the Tribune. Now Metabunker has an in-depth interview with the artist/cartoonist.

The Best American Comics 2007 will be hitting bookshelves next month. This year's edition was edited by Chris Ware, and you can read his introduction on the publisher's website.

• Craig Yoe, the editor of the excellent Arf comics anthologies, will be in Chicago tomorrow, September 19, giving a free lecture at Columbia College Chicago. It is open to the public. You can catch him and YOE! Studio co-founder Clizia Gussoni tomorrow at 6:30pm at 623 S. Wabash, Room 203. Call 312-344-7380 for more information. [via]
