US Weekly No.1 Time to Look at More Assholes
Oh great more horse shit.
Featured reward on our Kickstarter campaign:
Don Rosa has been nice enough offer color headshot sketches and dedications inside the Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Son of the Sun. At $500, this is a steal given how much his drawings go for. You choose the character and expression but we all know that hot-tempered and at-the-end-of-their-ropes make the best duck drawings.
God damn, I wish I had $500.

The Comics Journal Library series is the most comprehensive series of lavishly illustrated interviews conducted with cartoonists ever published. To celebrate our republication of the legendary EC line, we proudly present the first of a two-volume set of interviews with the artists and writers (and publisher!) who made EC great. Included in the first volume: career-spanning conversations with EC legends Will Elder, John Severin, Harvey Kurtzman, and Al Feldstein, as well as short interviews with EC short-timers Frank Frazetta and Joe Kubert. Also: EC Publisher William Gaines on his infamous Senate subcommittee testimony, and probing conversations between Silver Age cartoonist Gil Kane and Harvey Kurtzman, as well as contemporary alternative cartoonist Sam Henderson and MAD great Al Jaffee.
Part of what made EC the best publisher in the history of mainstream comics was some of the most beautiful drawing ever published in comic books, and every interview is profusely illustrated by pertinent examples of the work under discussion. The EC artists were renowned for their attention to detail, and the reproduction here takes full advantage of the oversized art book format.
I want this so bad.

Pretty sure this show was with Black Eyes and I was there.
