Meghan Turbitt's wonderfully nutty comic book, #FOODPORN, came in the mail today.

As a retired veteran of the restaurant business, I can say with some authority that the scenes depicted in this comic book happen all the time, but usually in the walk-in or dry goods stock room, not in the main dining area.
Also, wonderful job on the centerfold, and "Please pass the ketchup, I think it's going to rain!"

One of the joys of selling comic books: the extra cash can be used to buy other cartoonists comic books. Irene is an anthology of alternative comics, good stuff!

Of Mice and Magic

Some scans from Leonard Maltin's Of Mice And Magic; A History of American Animated Cartoons. I bought this book about 35 years ago, it is one of my prize possessions.

GW Duncanson

I bought a copy of Extraordinary Mezzanine by GW Duncanson, a comic book of surrealistic watercolor paintings, pop cultural/cartoon images mashed up with high art. I love this book. It's like you're walking through a museum, and a portrait of a stern Lucy Van Pelt is juxtaposed with a portrait of Frida Kahlo while a man with a chainsaw runs past a lonely Air Jordan in the middle of the room.

Anders Nilsen and Kyle Beachy

I picked up a copy of MAKE Literary Magazine Fall 2013 Issue #14 at The Mission Creek Festival last month, and It has a 4 page story by Kyle Beachy with artwork by Anders Nilsen.

I'm working on a short animated promo for The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, featuring this guy who just watched a 6 hour Walker, Texas Ranger marathon on WGN.
