Weekend Reading: Toth, Apes, Jesus and Lichty

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Interviews, Reviews,

Planet Of The Apes 2Okay, how many of you went to BEA this past week? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Since you didn’t make it, you might appreciate Torsten’s overview at Comics Beat.

Now, here’s some more nifty stuff:

Toth: Randy Reynaldo reviews Alex Toth, Genius Isolated. Need more be said?

Apes: My pal Rich Handley, no stranger to Planet of the Apes, reviews the first issue of BOOM!’s new Apes series, and likes it.

Apes II: Did you know there’s also a new Planet Of The Apes novel out? That’s right, novel! Scoop has the scoop.

Blackbeard: A terrific piece on comics historian Bill Blackbeard’s efforts to preserve comic strips, in case you were wondering why he’s such an important figure.

Wolfman: Robot 6 runs a list worth reading Marv Wolfman Movies They Haven’t Made Yet. Black Cat, anyone?

Grin: John Kricfalusi has a wonderfully illustrative post on a forgotten cartoonist, George Lichty from Grin And Bear It. Absolutely great cartooning.

Jesus: Geeky Universe interviews Stephen Lindsay, creator of the best-titled indy comic ever: Jesus Hates Zombies.

Drawing: Cartoonist Shawn Granger talks about his favorite pens and pencils.

Hunt: The wonderful British comics artist Hunt Emerson has something new. Lew Stringer, also a wonderful British comics artist, has the details.

Ultraverse: If you’re an Ultraverse completist or like to see some old comics from the go-go 1990s, you should check out Cheep Ultraverse. Lots of fun stuff over there, with a healthy dose of observational snark to add to it.

And finally, it's the 60th anniversary of The Goon Show.

Now use your internets responsibly!
