Welcome to our first guest blogger, August J. Pollak, cartoonist and blogger. I’ve been reading August’s cartoons online for longer than I’ve been writing about webcomics here. And I’ve been reading his blog regularly for awhile now too. He’s opinionated and funny and I really think he’s carving an interesting path for himself with cartoons and commentary online.
I wrote a review of August’s online series a couple of years ago and here’s a quote from it that August must have liked (because it’s on his website): "Pollak has a cartoony style, but is no less harsh in his approach to politics and news… If anything, the simple, slightly goofy art style lulls you a bit before you read the punchline." More recently, Ted Rall profiled August in Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists.
