National Post love

One of our esteemed national newspapers is sure friendly to Dave Collier. This week in The Afterword David Berry reviews Collier’s Popular Press. Of course included in the book is the 24 Simcoe St. strip Collier did for the Post, but to their credit they did a full page excerpt of comics from all the newspapers featured in the book. You would actually need to buy the paper to find that though. Imagine buying a newspaper! Here is some of what Berry has to say: “His later works, in particular Simcoe, are testaments to the often...

Heartless

"Nina Bunjevac’s art is a pleasure to look at. The writing is seriously demented, but in a totally brilliant, highly entertaining way. It is its own thing, imitating no one.” — Kim Deitch

Collier podcasts

Here is the podcast of the talk Dave Collier gave to Alex Fitch in the Imperial War Museum last summer to promote Chimo. It can also be found here and here. Did you know Dave has a new book out? Yes it’s true. He’ll be signing at TCAF and at McNally Robinson in Saskatoon in May. While in Saskatchewan he will be working on a secret project which we hope to reveal soon. Speaking of Saskatchewan, I just love this cartoon which appeared in the Saskatoon StarPheonix in 1995....

Britt Wilson

New secret project coming down the pike, hopefully out for TCAF. The highly-anticipated collection of comics from Britt Wilson! Know who is high with anticipation? Kate Beaton, that’s who: “I was drawn to Britt Wilson’s work immediately. The liveliness, the effortless polish, the humour- there was so much appeal, I ate it up, I looked through everything I could find.  I was thrilled to hear about a whole book full of those drawings.  I look forward to being jealous of Britt’s work for a long time to come, because...

End of year lists

Normally I don’t go in for end of the year lists. But I guess this time of year is considered a slow news day (week / month). But really I only like a list if it mentions Conundrum. Luckily, two Conundrum titles make the best of the year picks in Halifax’s The Coast. Hooray! Can you guess which two titles? Click on the sample images to find out. Also I suppose I should think about my top ten list too. Hmmmm… ...

Expozine Wrap-up

Well I need to get this down before the week rambles on and it’s on to other things, like the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival this weekend, which will feature Philippe Girard at the Conundrum Table. But last weekend was Montreal’s Expozine and I drove 13 hours straight through a snowstorm to be there. I wouldn’t miss this one since it was the 10th anniversary. Things kicked off with a panel discussion with the founders of the festival (including myself) at the Drawn and Quarterly store. Ah, to remember fondly the old...
