Yearlong Best of the Year: Little Nothings: Uneasy Happiness By Lewis Trondheim

Posted by on May 19th, 2010 at 1:00 PM
Uneasy Happiness presents an eminently accessible idea. Conceptually it’s loaded with entry points and hooks for would-be commentators. It’s easy to describe. The Little Nothings books are diaries of one-page strips in which Trondheim offers his reflections, sometimes developed, sometimes not, on moments of his daily life.

Spurgeon/Berlatsky Kerfuffle

In the comments of our interview, Tom Spurgeon tells me what he thinks of me. It's rather painful (for me at least!) but perhaps more revealing than the interview itself. In any case, click the link, start reading Abhay Khosla's comment, scroll, and wait for the gloves to come off.

Pictures of Dorian Gray, Images of Oscar Wilde; Part Three: Beardsley, Russell and Salomé

Posted by on May 19th, 2010 at 12:01 AM
The artist who has, without rival, done the most to bring Wilde's work into comics is P. Craig Russell. He has adapted four volumes of Wilde's fairy tales, including The Happy Prince and The Selfish Giant. Russell's adaptations are really very good, and they demonstrate his range as a comics artist. His images are elegant and subtle, with careful detail and even weight, when it's called for; and they are rounder and more playful, more cartoonish, when that suits the story better. He quietly shifts along this scale, finding just the right pitch, and adjusting the visual style frequently within a given story, or sometimes, even, on a single page. Russell also did a version of Salomé for the third volume of his Opera Adaptations. Part One, Part Two.

Manga 2.0: Yoshitoshi ABe’s Digital Dojinshi by Jason Thompson

Posted by on May 18th, 2010 at 9:00 AM
Jason Thompson, author of Manga: The Complete Guide, reviews both Yoshitoshi ABe's I am an Alien. I have a Question., and the mode of delivery, as it's only available in the U.S. via the iPhone and the Kindle; "As the traditional publisher-centric, print-oriented model of manga dries up, artists like ABe may be the ones best positioned to stay on their feet."
