Hey, they can’t all have 350 words on the horrors of dental work.

  • We have, in the past, discussed the work of Michael Jonathan on this page, with respect to his identity/brand design, to his mini comics, and his main work. It’s the latter that’s of interest today, as you should know that Eros, Inc. (which, despite this being the internet and that implies, is entirely SFW) is back from hiatus. It’s been a half-year or so, but this actually makes for a pretty good jumping-on point for new readers — ’tis the start of a new season, and Jonathan is ladling on the content to bring readers up to speed. Want to convince me that there’s enough comics to be worth my while? Doing updates that are the equivalent of 2½ – 3 pages is a pretty good place to start.

    I’m also gonna say that the art is a little more … assured is the right word, I think. Confident. Visually clean, no wobble or hesitation evident, like somebody’s been spending those six months away from regular updates drawing, drawing, drawing. Welcome back, Mr Jonathan, can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for us.

  • Show announcement for those of you that will be in New York City at some point during the spring, and what with MoCCA Fest happening in the spring, I imagine a fair portion of you will be. And it’s MoCCA that we’re referencing, as they bring a new show dedicated to Will Eisner and the inspiration he drew from his hometown of New York. Will Eisner’s New York: From the Spirit to the Modern Graphic Novel runs 1 March to 30 June, and it’s curated by possibly the two most knowledgeable people possible: Denis Kitchen and Danny Fingeroth. MoCCA is open Tuesday through Sunday (although closed right now for installation of this show), noon to 5:00pm, with a suggested donation of five bucks.
