Barry Deutsch

Comix Talk for Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Just a side note to everyone -- I'm behind on everything online, it's not you, it's me!  Hope to catch up before the end of the month.

MILESTONES: I didn't know Dwayne McDuffie, and although I was aware of his name in the industry I just never followed him specifically. It's always sad when a talented creator passes away too damn early and seeing all of the projects he worked on it's clear McDuffie was damn talented. GraphicNYC writes that it did a recent interview with him and that it will be up on their site next week.

AWARDS

REVIEW: El Santo reviews Axe Cop.

INTERVIEW: TGT podcast has an audio interview with Gordon McAlpin of Multiplex.

HYPE: Wow! Daniel Clowes has a website - be sure to check out the "About" page. (h/t Drawn!).

DEADLINES AND OTHER RIGHT-NOW STUFF

NEWS

  • Kitchen, Lind & Associates have signed up webcomic creator Bryant Paul Johnson (Teaching Baby Paranoia, The Antecedent). Previously this agency had signed up webcomic creators Eleanor Davis and Drew Weing. KL&A provides artist representation and book packaging to its clients. (KLA will have a booth at SPX on October 13th and 14th to promote its upcoming packaged books and is looking to meet with talented creators who are seeking representation.) You know you're at a webcomic news site because the big deal here to me is the signing of creators from the web. The big news to everyone else though will be that KLA has signed Jim Lawson and the estate of Harvey Kurtzman.
  • Barry Deutsch who sold his URL to a "Search Engine Optimization" company - but kept his blog and cartoons there - opens up his blog to discussion of his decision. Reinder has a post with some thoughts on the controversy.
