Happy Birthday Jason Sacks, author of American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1970s! 2014 VIDEO INTERVIEW

JASON SACKS podcast excerpt: “The 1970s was an interesting decade from a creator’s perspective because it was the first major wave of fans to become comic book professionals. People like the Friedrich brothers, Jim Starlin, Len Wein, Marv Wolfman. These were the first true comics fans to come out of the fan movement of the 1960s and their biggest ambition in life was to write for comics.”

Review: 'Second Avenue Caper' is an Important Story of a Lost Era

Review: ‘Second Avenue Caper’ is an Important Story of a Lost Era

We all know that some of the most interesting stories are stranger than fiction. The story that Joyce Brabner and Mark Zingarelli tell in Second Avenue Caperis one such story. It tells the improbable true-story of how a marijuana-dealing doctor in led to the importation of drugs to fight AIDS in the early 1980s. It’s a tale of nobility and sacrifice in the face of a terrible tragedy, of how a…

Classic Comics Cavalcade: Foolbert Funnies

One of the most interesting cartoonists of the underground era is Frank Stack, a.k.a Foolbert Sturgeon. You may know his work as illustrator of Harvey Pekar’s Our Cancer Year, or from his underground comics classic The New Adventures of Jesus, and if you’ve read either book you’ve seen Stack’s rather unique drawing style. Foolbert-slash-Frank draws like nobody else in comics, in blobby abstract…

Review: 'Aama: the Invisible Throng' is Visionary Science Fiction

Review: ‘Aama: the Invisible Throng’ is Visionary Science Fiction

Aama: the Invisible Throng is a mindfuck. It’s a journey both literally and metaphorically. It’s astonishing science fiction that takes readers to a world that’s unimaginable and it’s an expedition into the depths of a human soul. It’s an extraordinarily bizarre, completely astonishing graphic novel that continually goes into its own direction and forces the empathetic consumer to come along.

Renee French’s latest release Baby Bjornstrand has scored a four star review at the Comics Bulletin.

“There’s a sense of menace here, but there’s also a sense of peace and joy, kids having fun, perhaps despite the obstacles that they face. Kids abide, after all, and part of the charm of French’s Bjornstrand is in the way that it feels like a child’s dream come alive in an oblique way.” — Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

REVIEW of Pantalones, TX by Jason Sacks at Comics Bulletin


Chico Bustamante is the coolest kid in small Pantalones, Texas, a place where the canyons are vast, the cars run fast and the chickens grow huge. This new all-ages graphic novel from the good folks at Archaia is a thrilling, dynamic story full of high adventure, dramatic chases, giant battles and some good friendship, all wrapped up in a wonderful animated style.
