Come on out from 7 to 9 pm and celebrate the release with C.F.
In 2012 C.F. began to produce a series of more than a dozen mini-comics, which he distributed via Twitter. Each mini-comic offered a take on, and expansion upon, a classic comic strip genre-from crime and sci-fi to punk and sex-all of them infused throughout by C.F.’s absurdist humor and loose improvisatory drawing. Those comics, along with unpublished art and photos, are collected here.

Unfortunately we have to cancel all North American Blutch events due to passport difficulties: McNally Jackson, Bergen St. Comics, and TCAF.
We hope to reschedule but it’s uncertain. Apologies to all. The Comics Reporter has the story.

Lots of talking for PBox artists.
-Here’s Craig Thompson interviewing Blutch over at Boing Boing. This is a great interview — the best way to get to know Blutch, whose book So Long, Silver Screen, is out now. He’ll be here in North America soon enough!
-Jonny Negron is interviewed over here. Nice one.

Storm Thorgerson passed away yesterday. He was one of the all-time great graphic artists. I worked with him for about a year on our 2008 release, For the Love of Vinyl, which is the only definitive book on the Hipgnosis output, andI admired his work for a decade before that. Aubrey “Po” Powell wrote a tribute to his friend and Hipgnosis partner that says it best. The Guardian has a fine obituary and a series of tributes as well.
Rest in Peace, Storm.
