Not sure if Juxtapose is biting Giant Robot or The Comics Interpreter
but their last two issues have featured GR & TCI staples David Choe, James Jean (as interviewed by Choe), and Seanna Hong. At least the magazine that trumpets ugly art (founded by Robt. Williams, no less) has found it's way to some stuff that is both edgy yet still beautiful to look at. Good art need not always repulse you know. I haven't read Choe's sure-to-be-great interview with JJ yet, but the interview with Choe himself is terrific, as are the sumptuous pieces of art chosen to accompany the piece.
Anyway at this rate, look for future Juxtapose issues featuring Hans Rickheit, kozyndan, and Dash Shaw.

Hello,

I was displaced and my life completely ripped apart on Oct. 13, and I've been without internet access until now. Not that it mattered. But it's been restored so I'll probably start blogging again sporadically (which is all I ever did before). Nothing really matters or means anything for me any more. But I'm attempting to do things that make the time pass until I screw up the courage to jump off a bridge or cut my wrists or something.

HERE COMES DUSTY PENCIL

Dustin Harbin, who for the past decade has been the ubiqitous righthand man of HeroesCon founder Shelton Drum, recently made this announcement:

"After ten glorious, back-breaking, and enormously educational years, I’m moving on, into the world of freelance illustration and graphic design. And thus, penury If you’d like to see what I’m up to, try out my website: www.dharbin.com."

It's a credit to Dustin that I didn't even know he could draw, since in the few times we talked he never once dropped that little tidbit or hit me up to promote his work (like so many other artists), or anything. And yet as his website attests, he can draw...very well. I see a little Troy Nixey and maybe even Renee' French in his work, but only a little. Give his site a look. Good stuff.

COMICS EPHEMERA: AN EXERCISE IN MINIMALISM

Has it been far too long since you wondered Where's Waldo? Dash Shaw renews your quandary with this amazing (read: insane) new plaything.

See the full piece (as well as Shaw's original board game designs) HERE

And look for his new book The Mothers Mouth in stores now.


PS. I haven't bothered searching for Waldo, but it's easy enough to spot the androgynous banana that gave Shaw a handjob in Goddess Head.

 
Sorry for the lapse in posting. It's been a rough couple of weeks and suddenly everything was rendered meaningless (especially this) for a frozen moment.

LOST GIRLS SELLS OUT AGAIN AND AGAIN

This from Chris Staros of Top Shelf:

"Lost Girls hit stores on Wed Aug 31st, and the entire 10,000 copy 1st
printing sold out on that day. -- It even hit the "Top 20" on Amazon.com,
which has never happened to a Top Shelf title before. -- By that Friday,
the back orders in the Diamond system had already exceeded the 2nd printing
of 10,000, which is scheduled to hit stores in October. So, we went ahead
and ordered another 20,000 copies for the 3rd printing, to arrive in
December. If you see a copy, be sure to pick it up right away, as these new
printings are likely to sell out in short order as well."
-- $75.00 (US), ISBN 1-891830-74-0, FOR ADULTS ONLY
LG: http://www.topshelfcomix.com/catalog.php?type=12&title=219

I will attempt to calculate exactly how much gold will enter Top Shelf's coffers as a result of this
on the next podcast. No really, I'm going to crunch numbers and everything. Like Jethro Bodine doin' his figurin'.
