Jack Kirby at war - nine minutes of World War two stories. Enjoy!

"They made a perfect circle, except the bottom half of their bodies were missing. The shell evidently hit right in the center of the group and threw them out in a circle… and you see a lot of these nice designs, if you’re an artist."

A couple pages from recent sketchbook. I’ve been drawing in sketchbooks a lot this year. Trying to get in the zone for fellowship at library, to make Quaker soldier during the Civil War book. I think upper right of second page is a copy of a William Thackeray drawing maybe.

Praise for Shaw’s previous book

New School is about art, about the art that’s in the book itself…There’s stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the level of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say…This book is just fascinating…[A] masterful, gorgeous and defiantly odd work that demands close attention—and richly rewards it.” –NPR’s “Best Books of 2013”

I wrote a review of Feiffer’s Kill My Mother for The Comics Journal. I write a comics review once every 2 years.

Excerpt from ‘New School’ - Dash Shaw

This book is about being a young boy who teaches English in a foreign country. It’s an unusual version of that story.

I thought this was going to be a hit gif.

The entire Dashcon fiasco is a life-as-art comics installation and performance masterminded by Dash Shaw to come together with his Cosplayers comics. Dash=Dash.

I can neither confirm nor deny this.
