Another short Online Commentary & Diversons update… I guess everyone's too busy talking about Wednesday Comics to pay attention to us, boo hoo:
• Review/Interview: Chris Beckett of On the Fly Publications/Warrior27 looks at two recent releases by Jason and has a brief Q&A with "one of the most exciting cartoonists working today." From the reviews: "I heartily recommend The Last Musketeer for any fan of fantastic adventure yarns as well as anyone who enjoys a refreshing character study with a very real emotional tug at one’s heartstrings. Check this book out… [I Killed Adolf Hitler] is a masterful story that can be read on more than one level, which is always appealing. [It] is unique and tender and will challenge any preconceptions one might have about the book." Jason, from the interview: "I started doing comics when I was around 13 years old, and at that age I didn't have a camera, I didn't have a typewriter, but I had paper and a pencil."
• Plug: "Rejoice, a new Peter Bagge collection hits the shelves today from Fantagraphics, Everybody Is Stupid Except for Me and Other Astute Observations. I do like Bagge’s sarcastic, satirical style, offset by his very cartoony characters." – Forbidden Planet International Blog Log
