I recently rediscovered the archival webpage of SPXiles—an improvised SPX replacement event in NYC the weekend after 9-11—in my files. I thought I’d re-post it here for nostalgia and for the record. We’d already posted the photos on Flickr (as well as photos of the September 12 planning meeting) a year or so ago, but what the […]
The Festival International de la Bande Dessinée (FIBD) is breathing hard down our necks—the whole town is being transformed day by day into the banner-strewn tent city I remember from my previous visits. Matt and I have been put to work by many different comics-related institutions in town, and we’ve got a full plate. Here’s what we have […]
The Maison des Auteurs is putting on an exhibition for FIBD, and I’ve got just a few pieces in this show. It’ll be the first time finished Trish Trash pages are seen by the world.
Hot on the heels of six years of reading hundreds of American comics every year for the Best American Comics, I’ve agreed to do the same (much smaller volume, but IN FRENCH) as a member of the Grand Jury of the Compétition Officielle of the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée, to be held […]
Back in the summer, I was quite unexpectedly invited to St. Petersburg, Russia, for a comics festival called Boomfest. I hadn’t heard of it, but several friends had gone, including cartoonists Joe Sacco and T. Edward Bak and José Alaniz, an academic with expertise in Eastern European and Russian comics. I don’t usually write up much of […]
I was at the University of Chicago at the Comics: Philosophy and Practice last weekend, and live-tweeted most of it. A few people have asked for a link-able, reusable version of this documentation, so here it is (after the jump). I’m working on a comics story about it, for the University of Chicago Magazine, and […]
I’ll be at the University of Chicago this weekend for this absolutely insane comics event. I mean, please don’t let there be a terrorist attack on the NATO conference (also in Chicago this weekend!), because we’d lose the entire top tier of American cartoonists.
Matt and I will have a table (B3) and are running a workshop/discussion on Saturday at 1:15. Come see us! I’ll have printouts from my new scifi epic Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars to show off, new postcards from my Kickstarter, and lots of books for sale.
Anyone in the central Michigan area this coming week, I hope you’ll come out to see me at the MSU Comics Forum. I’ll be giving a talk on Friday night and then “tabling” as the comickers call it, on Saturday.
This is gonna totally screw with GraNoDraMo, and I’m only going for like 3 days, but I’m psyched anyway. My bags are packed for the first International Conference on Comics and Graphic Novels, to be held November 9 – 12 at the Universidad de Alcalá, near Madrid. “The main objective of the conference is to […]
