Here’s a round up of some of the best comics we’ve seen online in the past few weeks. If we missed something, let us know in the comments below.
In her latest comic for the New York Times, Lynda Barry asks the question, “How did then become now?” and chronicles the little things she saw as the world slowly changed from pre-pandemic to pandemic.
See what the Smash Pages crew has checked off their “to read” list lately.
Welcome once again to What Are You Reading?, our weekly journey into the center of our reading lists. This time around, hear about Tom’s endless trek through old Justice League issues, Shane’s adventures with 1990s X-Men comics and my own scattershot batch of comics.
And as always, tell us what comics you’ve been exploring in the comments.
“Savor is the type of book I’ve long wanted to write for my kids. As I get older my focus remains on stories about legacy, but viewed less from the POV of a son…and more through the eyes of a father. This one’s for my daughter, offering her a tale about finding your way, becoming who you’re meant to be, fighting for those important to you, and honoring the stories that have come before. It’s inspired by a lot of things—my love of food and cooking competitions, Disney films (Moana, in this case), and video games like Legend of Zelda. Here’s hoping that warriors of all ages will enjoy this bite-sized adventure,” Kleid said.
The prolific creator of ‘Delphine,’ ‘Cat Burglar Black’ and ‘Invisible Hands’ was 61 when he died.
Fantagraphics has shared the sad news that Richard Sala, creator of Delphine, The Grave Robber’s Daughter, Cat Burglar Black and Violenzia, has passed away at the age of 61. No cause of death was mentioned.
Sala’s work spans several decades, as he published his first comic, Night Drive, in 1984, and just a few weeks ago he announced a new webcomic, Carlotta Havoc vs. Everybody. In between, he combined his love of comics and monsters into a career that saw him published in anthologies like RAW and Blab!, create his own comics and graphic novels, and appear on MTV’s Liquid Television program, in a segment called Invisible Hands.
