Go, Look: My Late Book

image

Fantagraphics is previewing pages from Comics As Art: We Told You So, an oral autobiography of Fantagraphics Books facilitated by yours truly. The idea of the book is that in honor of the company-defining Comics Journal interview I would sort of interview the entire company in the widest sense of that phrase. The book is late because I suck. It'll be out this Fall.

The above image is a youthful Gary Groth with a homemade Captain America shield. Click through the image to access the previews.

Goodbye, Ninth Art

According to an announcement on their site, the comics-related magazine Ninth Art will close down on June 19. Congratulations to Ninth Art on a long, successful run. I will miss their occasional, strident art-comics criticism, which was always very entertaining.
