12:00 Indie Cartoonist Survival Guide: Part 3—Cartoonist Keith Knight moderates this panel (in its third appearance at APE), featuring a lineup of successful independent creators who share their stories, methods, techniques, trials, and tribulations concerning making a living as a so-called Indie Cartoonist. Shannon Wheeler (I Thought You Would Be Funnier), Dan Cooney (Dan Cooney Art), Andy Ristaino (Adventure Time), and Rebecca Sugar (Pug Davis) all chime in.
Gocomics' own "Lost Side of Suburbia" is now on Funbrain! Funbrain is the site that launched the hits "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Poptropica," and Kory Merritt's spooky narrative is the latest addition to the site.
Let's take the last day of September to look back at Baldo's Hispanic Heritage Months guest artist program.
I may not be of Hispanic Heritage but these still resonated with me. Especially the 9/18 Sunday strip where Isis Rodriguez reminds us that being cool & sexy is a high perfomance sport, because I've been living my life with that mantra playing over in over in my head since the first time I walked into a discotheque and did the robot dance.
This week at Over The Hedge there's a great discussion about the coming Singularity, an event whose merits I've debated endlessly with my Ray Kurzweil-worshiping brother-in-law. The strip above is from Tuesday, but you can start at the beginning of the week here. And if you want the ultimate proof of why humans will always be superior to machines, stop by the Over The Hedge Blog for this graphic and delectable presentation.
* Please note, there aren't actually any special musical guests on any of the stops. It was a lie and I'm ashamed of myself for even mentioning it in the first place. But just take a second and imagine if what I was saying was true? Wouldn't that be amazing?! Pastis and music? Oh yeah!
But let's be honest, it would probably be too much for that gorgeous brain of yours to take anyway.
My sainted grandmother would have disinherited me from her will (again) if she'd been alive to see this Monty comic that I green-lit for newspapers everywhere. It's not the former veep's blurred middle digit that would have upset her so, nor even the "water pipe for tobacco purposes" that's sitting demurely on top of the mini-fridge.
No, my beloved Gran would have strenuously objected to the presence of darts, which she always deemed a "low, Scotch-Irish game," not fit for polite society, or even ocasionally crass society.
Well, now it's been nominated* for a Pulitzer, for "best single comic frame ever." Whose "regressive Scotch-Irish blood" is a disgrace to the family now, huh, Grandma?
