The C-List: Post-Mania Letdown

:: Posted by BK @ 6/08/2009 06:01:00 AM

First thing Monday morning, our mania for all things comix and maniacal is slightly lessened. Nevertheless, comics mania continues:

Item: Cartoonist Aaron Costain is interviewed by Matt Forsythe about his comic Entropy Part 3 to inaugurate the new "graphic fiction" section of Carte Blanche magazine.


Item:
The fourth volume of the extremely popular and award-winning (in France and Quebec) Les Nombrils series has a video-promo.

Item: Cartoonist and Wright Award nominee Fave Lapp is interviewed at the always-excellent Inkstuds podcast.

Item: Artist Marta Chudolinska talks about her linocut graphic novel Back + Forth, upcoming from Porcupine's Quill (is this the first GN from the venerable publisher?), with NOW magazine.

Item: British comics writer Neil Gaiman is visiting Toronto for Luminato and talks about the Silver Snail comic shop.

Item: Tom Spurgeon conducts an epic interview with the cartoonist Seth on a variety of subjects, from obscure greats like Thor Hansen to John Cage, Charles Schulz and Robert Crumb. Seth also makes a few sensible, measured comments about the new Doug Wright book he designed, contra the critics.

Item: Richard Bruton reviews Kaspar by Diane Obomsawin (#20 this week on the Sequential Bestseller List)

Item(s): Leif Peng has just become my favourite blogger for writing a series of profusely illustrated posts about Canada's forgotten cartoonists, including the great Peter Whalley, Len Norris, Des English & Ken Zeeley, and Duncan MacPherson & Bert Grassik.
