  • Ira Marcks, a cartoonist from NY, recently collaborated with Jake Lodwick (founder of Vimeo) on an experimental illustration/animation project. Marcks describes it as “sort of like a 45 minute music video with one sliding frame. But it’s also like a graphic novel told in a single, 50 foot long panel.” He calls it Illustrative Score.
  • Ellen Degeneres: The Comedian becomes Ellen Degeneres: The Comic Book.
  • The Comix Claptrap’s most recent interview subject was the brilliant Gabrielle Bell, who talks about bringing new stories from her “Lucky” series to the internet.
