“Lonergan’s clean, sharp lines, minimal backgrounds, and pure black and white (no grays, not even via shading) make another story of a youthful, probably temporary relationship vivid and affecting. Altogether excellent.” See more on Joe & Azat and Jesse Lonergan.

Vatican Hustle by Greg Houston gets a few awed remarks: “a love letter to the blacksploitation genre penned in the only manner such a note can successfully be executed: way the hell over the top. Houston clearly had a blast writing and drawing Vatican Hustle, and his joy is infectious.” Brian Heater of The Daily Cross Hatch […]

I’m at present finishing up the final inking on “The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans,” but it’s never too late to make small adjustments and corrections.  I just returned from a long-overdue visit to New Orleans, where I immersed myself in the atmosphere of the place.  Below is a comparison of a penciled page (before my […]

TWILIGHT of the World of Zombies

When I wrote THINGS UNDONE I had no idea it would become a film. And it still hasn’t but the more I see romance and horror mixing the more it makes sense. Then again, it’s hard to imagine two zombies making out…or is it? If there was ever a chance for something so ripe to […]

Ted Rall and Pablo Callejo’s The Year of Loving Dangerously just keeps getting the accolades, the latest from Booklist: “He was more interested in well-stocked refrigerators than impending sexual adventures. Realistically illustrated in soft colors by Callejo, of Bluesman (2004–06) fame, and maximally unbuttoned in some places, Rall’s sympathetic account of his life on the […]
