Cross Hatch Dispatch 10.11.10

Categories:  Reviews


[Above, Mick Foley loves Tori Amos.  Below, the Dispatch prefers death metal.]

  • A recent post on Today’s Inspiration examines the ways cartoonists’ styles evolved during the 1950’s, in reaction to the invention of television.
  • Susie Cagle is serializing Nine Gallons #1 online.
  • Charles Burns will be discussing his new series, X’ED OUT (the first volume of which hits stores on October 19) at Quimby’s in Chicago on Wednesday, November 3 at 7:00pm.
  • Speaking of Quimby’s, they (and Atomic Books) have got quite the new project of their own. 2011: The Revenge of Print asks anyone who’s ever made a zine or mini comic to make just ONE MORE ISSUE. Help prove that paper isn’t dead just yet.
  • Chris Diaz has put together a neat little video about APE 2009, just in time to get you pumped for APE 2010!
  • Shaenon Garrity thinks it’s awful cute that Mick Foley likes Tori Amos. So cute, she made fan art.
  • In China, copyright laws have little bearing on reality. Thus, the Snoopy iPhone.
  • Cartoonist Matt Furie has made an indie videogame called Return of the Quack. It’s been getting nice press and it looks real cool.
