Comics Waiting Room. com has this to say about Little Nothings 2 What stood out for me here overall, though, was the observational quality of the writing. Trondheim is one of the most accomplished artists in the world, but he has a poetic soul with the pen. When he ruminates on what it feels like […]

Little Nothings 2 reviews

Newsarama: Trondheim appears determined to guarantee himself a place on everyone’s Best Of lists on an annual basis. Everything about the strips, the humor, the coloring, the observations about our cultural standards, is warm and inviting. Trondheim’s self-effacing wit remains strong. Little Nothings has become the most welcome, positive and anticipated book of the year. […]

I just got told that my drawings of myself make me look like a grizzly monk. Is that so? Grizzly? Not too much news on the Turkmenistan book. At the moment a copy is USPSing its way to Terry in New York. I’ve been working on the cover which is coming out pretty well. Hopefully […]

We’re shipping now the next installment of the main branch of Dungeon, one we hadn’t published anything new in for a while. It has a new artist who does a great segue from Trondheim/Sfar’s art. Generally now these 2 guys are so busy they’re only writing the Dungeon books together and passing along the art to […]

It’s been kind of a busy week. I managed to get the bulk of the Turkmenistan book done (there is still the cover and some editing to do)(so maybe I shouldn’t use the word done)(but I want to). I also managed to turn thirty, which someone told me is the new twenty. All I can […]

Hey, all! Been working pretty hard to get THE BIG KAHN ready for the printer over here, but wanted to duck in and add to the chorus of working studio photos. Here are two quick snaps of my fairly cluttered drawing table… usually, I script on my laptop from any point around the studio, but […]

“Sibylline imbues each short with a clear and strongly realized emotional core. Most enjoyable, nearly every story paints sex as a positive, joyful experience. There’s no shame or humiliation here, as nine of the women (unfortunately, not the doll) are willing partners in each act, and everyone comes out of their experiences richer for it. […]
