Amanda Vahamaki explores wandering, dream-like narratives with lucid characters and lush pencil drawings. Her debut graphic novel “Campo di Babà” (“The Bun Field”) was originally published by the Italian Collective Canicola and has since been published in a number of languages. Currently active in Finland and recently published in Drawn and Quarterly Showcase and The Comics Journal #296, she is truly an international artist. Her work transcends borders of place and time, revealing a space that is as universal as it is unique.

Alex Dueben interviews Ho Che Anderson (Part One of Two)

Ho Che Anderson will likely always be associated with King, the three-volume biography of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which was published by Fantagraphics in single-issue form between 1993-2002 before being collected in a single volume, and rereleased in hardcover this year. For some of us, our first introduction to Anderson’s work was a series of gritty urban relationship tales — Young Hoods in Love, I Want to Be Your Dog, Pop Life — a little more sexual and frank than most comics, with an expressionistic style defined by mood and lighting.

Jason Leivian of Floating World Comics talks to Benjamin Marra

Posted by on March 24th, 2010 at 12:01 AM
Benjamin Marra self-publishes Gangsta Rap Posse and Night Business under the imprint Traditional Comics. The printing quality stands out: Offset printing on newsprint, it looks and feels like an indy comic from the ’80s or early ’90s. He consistently releases new material and his work gets better with each issue. * Images contained in this article are NSFW.
