 I grew up in the tail end of the life of the sports cartoon. Bill Gallo was still at the NY Daily News, and the local Bergen Record had a sports cartoonist. By now, the field is mostly gone, but as Eddie Campbell has written about it, in its heyday, it launched the careers of many a cartoonist.This past weekend I found an original sports cartoon and a pritnted comic strip at an estate sale.The original cartoon is by Christy Walsh, a failed sports cartoonist.

On the passing of comics scholar Tom Inge

Word is moving through the comics academic community that M. Thomas 'Tom' Inge passed away last week. I didn't know Tom deeply, but for a long time I sent him comics ephemera for his collection at VCU, and articles about Edgar Allan Poe in comics. He was a big fan of my friend, Richard Thompson too. Tom and I probably met at an ICAF meeting, but we became better acquainted when I was called up from the minors to fill in for two Harvey Pekar interviews at SPX. I did them, and then tran...

Zack Snyder Wrote a ‘300’ Sequel That Turned Into a Movie About Alexander the Great, but Warner Bros. Turned it Down

We almost had ourselves a third 300 movie. Sort of.

However, Warner Bros. passed on the project, either because they didn’t like the script or because they don’t like Snyder, depending on who you ask (Snyder seems to think it’s the latter option).
