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?

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...
