The Latest Celebrity Autopsies on Tape: Five Comic Books that Deserve a Film Adaptation

Since Generation X filmmakers came of age, comic books have been the driving narrative force behind every other piece of media in existence. Black Panther won three Oscars and Marvel’s overall box office take makes it wealthier than some continents. Unfortunately, as happened in the 1990s, the marketplace is becoming saturated with product of questionable merit. While the aforementioned Black Panther is a good movie in its own right, there are things like Suicide Squad that dilute the genre. Not...

Love and Politics Go Awry in James Sturm's 'Off Season'

None Three things I strongly suspect are true about graphic novelist James Sturm: he is or has been married, he has kids, he doesn't have a dog head. Of the three, I'm least certain of the last. I also really, really hope he didn't vote for Jill Stein instead of Hillary Clinton in 2016, but honestly I have no idea. The latter comment is oddly central to Off Season, a graphic novel set in the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election, which both frames and represents the marital turmoil of...

Rikke Villadsen's Idiosyncratic 'The Sea' Sets the Imagination Adrift

None As much as I enjoy US and UK comics, some of the best English-language work is coming from other countries right now. Certainly Drawn & Quarterly and Koyama Press have proven Canada's oversized presence, and though Fantagraphics is stationed in Seattle (which is sort of Canada?), some of their most exciting releases feature international authors. This month Fantagraphics debuted Danish artist 's first English-language comic, The Sea. Though I would be content to read a translation of a w...

Michael DeForge's 'Brat' Challenges the Act of Reading Comics

None Sometimes I think I'm reading Michael DeForge the wrong way. His Instagram strip, Leaving Richard's Valley, is coming out as a book collection from Drawn & Quarterly soon, but I'm catching up on Brat, released last fall from Koyama Press. It's a story of an aging celebrity, a former juvenile delinquent renowned for acts of vandalism as art installations. She's still appreciated by her now middle-aged followers. But I'm not sure "story" is the best word to describe these graphic narratives....

THE BUREAU: Part Eleven, "Your Supervisor Disintegrates" — with a Gysin Dream Machine, an Altman Brain Machine, and Other Hallucinatory Hardware

Aloha, Office Participant! This is the second to last installment of the Bureau series. Today has you pondering life's meaning. Meditation is a helpful way to consider our role in the world and find deeper connections and ideas. Regrettably, the modern world is very loud and tangentially distracting, particularly with notification-driven devices. A long attention span to properly meditate can be very difficult to achieve. Let's begin by pressing play to enjoy some kaleidoscopic peace of mind: ...

Nathan Gelgud's 'A House in the Jungle' Plays with Perception

None A recluse grows addictively hallucinatory pineapples in a jungle near a small but expanding town where he sells them through an organic supermarket in order to pay a guru to transport him to the world of his visions. While that plot may sound plenty odd, it only touches the surface oddity of Nathan Gelgud's graphic novel, A House in the Jungle. There are also inexplicable bags of garbage and then dead dogs that appear on the reclusive Daniel's property—which technically isn't his property,...

THE BUREAU: Part Ten, "Your Death" — with a Turing Machine, Bouncing Ball Envelope, and Other Randomized Voltage

Greetings - It's 2019! Let's hope this new set of twelve months is one of good random events to offset the odd occurrences of 2018. Two installments remain in your day at The Bureau, and today you end on Death. This is a random event, though explainable, based on the narrative path of the last few hours. An ending is just one of two possible variables, the other being a continuation. In computer terms, this is a binary decision between ones and zeroes, which often means true or false, or yes...

THE BUREAU: Part Nine, "Your Sandwich Speaks!" — with SBaGen-based Digital Drugs for New Year's Eve

Happy Upcoming New Year. The Bureau is a story focused on how we spend our time on this planet, and following this weekend is the annual clock reset for most countries locked on Pope Gregory's calendar: New Year's Eve. To help set the mood properly, here's a little Alan Watts: Now Alan's getting a little deep here, but questioning time's absolute definition is a nice thing to consider. Of course, mind-shifting substances can help with these perceptions. Drugs, used responsibly and with purpo...

'The Best American Comics 2018' Beautifully Showcases the Diversity and Creativity of the Medium

"When it comes to art there is nothing more limiting than only valuing work that gives you more of what you already know you like." - Bill Kartalopoulos"Looking toward the blurry future, I'll bet that comics as a medium will influence our changing definitions of literature and film, and we will start to see hybrid forms develop. Cartoonists, as masters of both words and pictures, are likely to be amongst the innovators and authors of future forms of storytelling." - Phoebe GloecknerThe 13th ins...

Graphic Fiction 'Roaming Foliage' Digs into the Undergrowth

None It's difficult to describe the exceptional weirdness of Patrick Kyle's Roaming Foliage. For once, the adjective "unique" is accurate. I've literally never read anything like it. Explaining why that's such a wonderful thing -- not just for Kyle but for comics generally -- will take some explaining. First, consider the physical book. It's the height of a standard graphic novel (picture anything from Marvel, DC, Image, etc.), but it's oddly wider—which, for me, recalls the dimensions of a ch...

Part of this series has been to acknowledge electronic instruments that impact our lives positively. We've already highlighted the work of ...

THE BUREAU: Part Four, "The Appearance and Assassination of President Jung Thug"

Each week of The Bureau has an electronic music soundtrack for each panel. Here is this week's playlist: On the subject of Killing Thug President Thug, is of course, a work of complete fiction. Born under the harsh unloving glare of his father, Slumlord Sigmund "Fred" Thug, young Jung grew up covered in money but without the nurturing warmth that many humans require for sustainable organ function. Subsequently, at age five Jung's heart collapsed. This was an emergency situation where the na...
