An Oral History of Wimmen's Comix: Part I

If you've talked to me in the past year, you've likely heard me mention this project. I spoke with two dozen cartoonists about It Ain't Me, Babe and Wimmne's Comix, two important comics anthologies. This is the first of two parts. Many of them really opened up to me and were very open about their lives and their careers, the challenges they faced, their personal lives. I am really honored that they shared their stories with me and I can only hope that the article and the new Collected Wimmen's Comics volume helps introduce or remind people of many of these artists and their work.

The Imitation Game decodes the real life adventure and tragedy of Alan Turing

I'm a huge fan of Jim Ottaviani, who has written a number of graphic novels about scientists and science. He and Leland Purvis have worked together before on a book about Niels Bohr, and their new book tackles Alan Turing. Like so many people I'm a great admirer of Turing, who is a truly awesome figure of the 20th Century for so many reasons. Read this book to discover that Turing was a world class athlete in addition to a legendary mind. It's a great book and a great tribute.
