Comix Talk for August
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on August 4, 2011 - 09:10
August is going to be even lighter than usual, posting-wise. Here's some of the news this week:
- Comic Alliance interviews Mike Norton of the webcomic Battle Pug - among other comics projects. Visually - the battle pug is just hilarious every time I see it.
- Part two of a two part interview with KATE BEATON up at Newsarama.
- A lot of well-deserved hype this week for Maritza Campos' new project - Power Nap. An interesting premise - it's about a world where a drug has removed the need for sleep from humans, but unfortunately for our protagonist, he's allergic to the drug. Art is by Bachan who has a great style that complements Campos' outlandish, and often frentic style of story.
- The comic-in-progress The Chairs Hiatus by Matthew Bogart is really good!
HIATUS AND GOODBYE: Otis Frampton posted that he will return to updating Escape From Nowhere in September. I wouldn't normally post about something that far out, but Otis' webcomic showed a lot of promise as a fun action adventure story.
OPINIONATIN': Reuben Bolling nails another one -- TOM THE DANCING BUG: Great Moments in American Political Negotiation and Compromise.
