Links Ahoy! May 2010

Blog entry by Jeff

Here are a few BONE/RASL related links from around the web:

Julian, a student in Mrs. Doran’s class, wrote a book report on his teacher’s blog site. Dig the photo (above) that goes with it.  – - I think that’s supposed to be me!

Julian’s blog can be read here! Keep reading, Julian!

Avish Parashar, a motivational speaker watched The Cartoonist documentary on his local PBS channel recently and was motivated. You can read Avish’s comments here!

RASL vols. 1 & 2 are reviewed by the Portland Mercury and you can read that here.

Also, letterer extraordinaire, and a cartoonist  himself, Todd Klein gives RASL vol. 2 a review on his site.

This is awesome; especially if you’re from Columbus. Columbus through Buffalo eyes. A journalist from Buffalo, NY, that is! An out of stater falls for Columbus, loves the Cartoon Research Library and in the last paragraph, mentions Old Man’s Cave and Bone. This’ll make anyone want to visit Columbus!
Her article for the Buffalo News can be found here.

And last but not least, from Spain comes this awesome drawing from a reader I met at the Barcelona Festival.

He wrote about the signing on his blog. I love the drawing, Andre!

RASL 8 BRAND NEW COVER!!!

Blog entry by Tom

Hey everybody! Tom here. Jeff and Vijaya will be back (Iceland’s volcano permitting) on Thursday, so we’ll be posting pics from their trip in a couple of days. But in the meantime, Steve has outdone himself again! He has re-colored our little mystery girl to make her even creepier!

THIS is the new cover for RASL 8… and my next tattoo!

Smiley on the READ poster series for ALA.

Blog entry by Tom

The American Library Association (ALA) asked Jeff to participate in their hugely successful READ campaign this year!

The READ campaign features popular comic, manga, and graphic novel characters on posters and bookmarks whose message is to celebrate the joy and value of reading. Jeff jumped at the chance to contribute to this very important motivational and educational program.

You can purchase the poster by clicking here!

And get the bookmarks here!

Barcelona International Comics Festival

Blog entry by Tom

Hi all! I dropped Jeff and Vijaya off at the airport a little while ago. They’re headed to the Barcelona International Comics Festival, where Jeff is a special guest. Gail Simone, Lewis Trondheim, Tardi and Ivan Reis are among the other special invited guests.

I’m sure they’ll send us some pics via iPad (or iPhone) and I’ll put them up as I get them.

For those of you that live in Spain, here is Jeff’s very busy schedule. Hope you can come out!
