MATURE CONTENT AND LANGUAGE:
Matt Ellis draws and writes ‘The Man of Many Shades‘ which is a comic noir about a guy named Happy who’s trapped inside some kid’s drawings and uses his private eye investigation skills to find a way out.
Very cool set up for a comic. You can read the whole thing for free online.
I don’t think there is a more significant American comic book writer than Harvey Pekar. Now he is making comics on the web. Smith Magazine offers the first installment of what promises to be a series. It’s called The Pekar Project.
The first story is Pekar & Crumb: Talkin’ ’bout Art. It’s drawn by Tara Seibel.
This might be the best thing on the web today.
Robert Berry is adapting Ulysses by James Joyce into web comic form. It’s very watercolory and seems to capture that disjointed free-floating narrative of the novel pretty well.
