Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

* spent some time last evening with Noah Van Sciver on account of Steve Bissette being in town for a little Billy Ireland research. He says he's shut down his Patreon because he couldn't find work to specifically serialize through the site. Van Sciver was making about $700 a month through that avenue and that would be a significant decision to move in another direction, even if it were project-specific. Van Sciver's "His Last Comic" seems to be coming out through Facebook.

* this exploration of the #1 politics-related theme of our time not coming from Matt Furie gives credit to its creator and cartoonist KC Green. It is indeed highly specific and highly mutable, with a bit of mystery to it -- great cartooning has worked that way for years.

* finally, using his recent Unbeatable Squirrel Girl acclaim as a springboard, Rich Johnston drives attention to Ryan North's Dinosaur Comics.
