Dream Of My Comics Journal Interview #1

Back in the mid-nineties, while I was still beavering away on RARE BIT FIENDS, I did an in-depth interview with THE COMICS JOURNAL (which appeared in #175). During the sessions with Jeremy Pinkham, which went on over several weeks, I had this dream, which seemed to reference the interview as well as the comic book wars that were part of my story. It also seems to hint at memory suppression. I drew it and published it in RARE BIT FIENDS #7.

This particular story was done on the old Craftint paper, which offered two tones by applying special chemicals to the boards. The originals have a reddish tint that photographs as black. I’ve scanned from the originals here and thought it interesting to keep the red here on the blog.

It’s an 8 pager and if I can program the calendar correctly a page a day should get posted automatically while I’m on the road.

Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Turk

This is Scott McCloud’s drawing after a photo that was taken at the summit meeting where the Creator Bill Of Rights was argued and signed. What year was that; 1986? That’s me, second from right. Bissette, Eastman, Laird, Sim, Gerhard, Marder, Murphy, Zulli and the usual suspects alongside. © Scott McCloud.

Ominous Dominous!

This page from HERO Comics #20, May 1968 issue, features a guest appearance by OMINOUS, a character my brother Mike created. Some of the comics Mike did of OMINOUS are pretty terrific in a post-modernist sense. OMINOUS had the power to come back to life after being killed, so many of Mike’s stories were just that: the character being killed and resurrected over and over again. Genius, I say!

@#*! Skin Art

This came in the email today. Anyone else out there with Veitch inspired tats?

Dream River

This dream comic was originally done for a cd collection of New York songwriters called IT’S ONLY A DREAM, Songs Of The Collective Unconscious on Mark Sidgwick’s Medulla label.
