In less than 36 hours, I plan to participate in 24-Hour Comics Day. In a nutshell, this Saturday is set aside for masochists to create a 24-page or 100-panel comic within 24 hours. I plan to start as early as I can–3 or 4am if I can, and to live-tweet-blog-video it throughout the day and … [Read more…]

If you’re unfamiliar with the phenomenon, Wikipedia has a good summary of the rules. Past grads include luminaries like Kevin Eastman and Neil Gaiman. We’re looking for a few good humans to join us. And any … [Read more…]
This is absolutely priceless. A comic & blog post about Cheney (who, incidentally, “is as ancient as he is evil and he is large amounts of both.”).
First of all, it was revealed recently that Barack Obama has a collection of Spider Man and Conan comics. Do you hear that? OUR FUTURE PRESIDENT READS MARVEL!!1! Bush strikes me as a Superman guy. (Green Party types read Vertigo and Maus and maybe Love and Rockets) So when Madeleine Brand (who I love!) of … [Read more…]
I’ve long been a fan of Sinfest, but it’s mostly been religious, rather than political in nature. Recently, since one of the characters is a pig, there was a whole Palin lip-stick-on-pig thing that I’m still not sure what I think about.

Yet another buried treasure unearthed via boing boing.
This comic by Kate Beaton perfectly captures the resignation I often feel towards work, simplicity/consumerism, and ascetic spirituality. Following the link gets you to a long page of unlinked comics–find in page for “Hiked to Italy” for the complete comic.
