Hi everyone; happy new year! Holidays are coming to an end and I have no excuse to stay away from the computer anymore (it’s -17 c out, that’s 1 degree fahrenheit! It’s Narnia out there, eternal winter, no christmas. I refuse to stick even the tip of my nose outside the door). Anyway, Graylight is […]
Comic Mix reviews Malefic, which was then picked by the much larger IMDb: “His art speaks volumes without a single letter. He works predominantly with acrylic and oil on paper and the work is moving and imaginative. There’s an undercurrent of sensuality in his compositions regardless of setting or impending doom. Royo fans will certainly […]
“Ted Rall is a terrific journalist (“Silk Road to Ruin”), a take-no-prisoners political cartoonist (“America Gone Wild,” to name just one collection, and his work runs in many media outlets) and … gigolo?

Houston clearly had a blast writing and drawing Vatican Hustle, and his joy is infectious.” Brian Heater of The Daily Cross Hatch […]
First, let’s point you to a fun interview on Smith Magazine’s site with Ted Rall on his recent Year of Loving Dangerously. Greg McElhatton of Read About Comics sees Rall’s book as a bit of an exercise in self-justification but still grants that “This is the kind of glimpse into someone’s life that readers […]
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 […]
