    Making it after all

    I only put this here because I only get a picture taken of me about once a year and even then I look fat or retarded or just got out of bed and here’s one I’m not ashamed of. It’s one Danny Hellman took at the Brooklyn Book Fair last Sunday. The idea is supposed…

    Magic Whistle 13: Proof it exists

    It was scheduled to come out three weeks ago but it’s obviously low priority for Diamond Comics. I’ve gotten reports that it is in fact in stores. This picture from the staff of Staffars Serier in Stockholm shows that it has hit stores. The thirteenth issue of Magic Whistle was by far the biggest seller…

    SPX events, furthur

    I know I keep talking about the Small Press Expo (It’ll be over this weekend. I’ll stop. I promise. I’ll talk about CAB instead.) but I had to let you know again about these two events. The Carousel reading will be about 50% different from the one at Atomic Books, so there’s not as much…

  • SPXplosion


    I posted about the Small Press Explosion a couple weeks ago, where you’ll be able to get the thirteenth issue of Magic Whistle. There’s also a party at Atomic Books in Baltimore the night before, mainly to promote Peter Bagge’s new book, but will also have various cartoonists reading from their work. I’m doing a…

  • Screwballs

    More than ten years ago, I was down and out and living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when it was still affordable, working class–and more importantly, a relatively safe neighborhood most people never heard of. It had not yet become the hipster frat boy capital of the world. I still had friends that refused to go “all…

  • Ink Studs

    The cliche is true. When your voice is played back you ask yourself “Do I really sound like that?” and you’re the only one that sees anything wrong. A couple weeks ago I was sat down with Robin McConnell for his Ink Studs radio podcast, which has featured practically everyone that’s ever worked in comics.…

    SPX 2013

    I don’t even know where to start. There are so many exhibitors and so many guests. Even more than on this poster, too many to mention. Name any cartoonist you can think of and there’s a 75% chance they’ll be there. I’ll just direct you to the Small Press Expo web page for you to…

    Magic Whistle # 14-sneak peek

    The thirteenth issue’s not even out yet and I’m already working on the fourteenth issue. Here’s a sneak preview of a story I just did. The whole issue’s not gonna be all “loose” like this, I just tried doing a finished version and couldn’t get the spontaneity of the thumbnails. Plus it breaks the monotony…

  • Sam Henderson on iComics

    As part of the celebration of 20 years of Magic Whistle, this video was concocted to promote the new digital editions. What, you don’t know about those? You can read issues 0, 7, 9, 12, 13 (when it comes out in August) and the Humor Can Be Funny collection on your handheld electronic device. More…
