Item! Kate Beaton is about to become an even busier woman. Her new book, Hark A Vagrant is launching September 27th in New York and she will be embarking on a cross-continental book promotion jaunt in-between doing tons of interviews and illustrating Wuthering Heights in comic strip form. Genius!
Item! Ethan Rilly also has a new book out: Pope Hats 2! The book launches tonight at The Central in Toronto with a special appearance by Chester Brown and young cartoonist Britt Wilson. Rilly is one of the more exciting new cartoonists on the scene and Pope Hats 2 is a big event. You all saw his awesome Phillip K Dick cover for the Dylan Williams fundraiser, didn’t you? The event continues.
Item! Scott Chantler is interviewed by the K-W Record about the giant shitload of comics he has produced over the last year, influences, and what’s next.
Item! Interview with a comic shop clerk: Jason Arnold of Fredericton’s Strange Adventures is interviewed by the local university paper.
Item! Oops, we missed this Toronto stop for the Marc Bell/Anders Nilsen tour! Can someone please send us an event report or photos? Something?
