Our August issue is officially launched – I have a quick review of a great photo reference book filled with shots of facial expressions; Derek Badman reviews two webcomics from the European webcomics site, Electrocomics; Patric Lewandowski wraps up his examination of closure and synthesis in comics; and I have an interview with Andrew "mneonix08" Gomez on the reboot of his webcomics toplist site, Buzzcomix. And last but not least the very cool cover this month is from Peter Donahue, the co-creator of Pear-Pear (be sure to click the "view the entire cover" button to see the whole thing).
