June brings tulips, lilies, roses,
Fills the children's hands with posies.
Item: Flipping through an old Consumers Distributing catalog from the 70s, I recovered a lost memory of sexual arousal brought about by early Michael Golden art. I think I'm really making progress!
Item: Prize-winning policart and comics historian Aislin pens a fine review of the Collected Doug Wright for the Montreal Gazette. Aislin (aka Terry Mosher --where do these cartoonists get this one-name monicker gimmick?) is an actual peer to Wright, to the extent they both were working in the 70s and 80s, and brings both his artist's and historian's eye to a discussion of Wright's work.
Item: Chatham, Ontario hobby store owner Chris Bullard, owner of Game Masters Emporium, talks about his struggle to stay afloat during the recession and the slump in comic book sales.
Item: Scott Pilgrim mania continues with a NOW magazine article about the history of the lead characters name (Scott Pilgrim is a song by defunct Canadian band Plumtree).
Item: The Shusters blog profiles LA Mood comic shop in London, Ontario.
Item: George Sprott mania continues. Not only are Seth and the great Adrian Tomine embarking on a massive U.S. tour to promote their respective book projects (besides his own graphic novels, Tomine is also the editor/designer of Tatsumi's A Drifting Life), but the reviews for Sprott keep pouring in. Read how George Sprott captures the history and feel of small-town Canadian tv here.
Item: Owl Magazine cartoonist and man of taste C-Ton interviews the young geniuses behind the anthology Wowee Zonk. Essential reading!
