"Trashed" by Derf

I first knew of Derf's work through his fascinating and disturbing "My Friend Dahmer", which I consider a classic underground comic (Derf actually went to school with Jeffrey Dahmer!). I was f*cking around on the internet yesterday, and came across his Trashed webcomic. A nice surprise - it's really a good story! There's loads of it online, and a new page goes up every Friday. I'll definitely be following it from now on. Derf: you are a great cartoonist! Thanks for being so generous as to put all this online.

Kim Deitch...

... talks about his new book.

I'm still gutted I couldn't go to his Comics Workshop in New York a few weeks ago. I wonder if we could get him to London somehow? Sounds like a job for Paul Gravett!

The Dancer

This is my self-portrait for the new issue of Whores Of Mensa! W. O. M. has been one of my favourite comics over the last few years - don't take my word for it, go check it out. It's a real jewel of the small press scene - the kind of comic that makes me wonder if the small press is actually better than the "big" press. The new issue will be a little different in that it features a bunch of guest artists (of which I am one), while Mardou takes maternity leave. It's a party-themed issue, and based on the quality of previous volumes, it should be a classy affair.

"On The Corner... a sequel."

Continuing from yesterdays post. By Harvey Pekar, Gregg Budgett, & Gary Dumm. Many obituaries are going to talk about the great Crumb collaborations, but it's the Pekar/Budgett/Dumm strips which are my personal favourites.

Sons of the Underground: Noah Van Sciver & Joseph Remnant

"One thing I’ve noticed in recent years is that there are an increasing number of young cartoonists who are drawing their inspiration directly from underground cartoonists like Robert Crumb, as opposed to the alternative artists of the ’80s, the Xeric generation of the ’90s or even their own peers."
Rob Clough takes a look at Noah Van Sciver & Joseph Remnant on

Forbidden Planet : Big Shelves for Small Press, & commission free sales.

Selling self published comics can be a time consuming pain in the ass; but Kenny Penman, at Forbidden Planet, is doing his bit to help :
"We are building special racks for small press/self published works and putting them in Nostalgia & Comics in Birmingham, World’s Apart in Liverpool and Forbidden Planet Manchester."
Forbidden Planet aren't taking any commission either. The details are all here.
