I was sad to see the Drama Magazine fold up a couple of years back. I never really got around to writing an obituary… and it looks like I may not have to. Sort of.
This has probably been online for some time. Still, it’s pretty cool: the entire run of the magazine is now available as free PDFs! It was a cool mag, fantastically designed (each issue better than the previous) with a great 2-color comics section. I had the privilege to contribute to the last 4 issues along with such great cartoonists as Vanessa Davis, Zak Sally, Matthew Thurber, Dash Shaw and many others. RIP The Drama. Long live the Drama. Nothing stays dead for long. All that is solid melts into air. Internet immortality and all that…

Still, I’m going to treasure my hard copies that much more. Thanks to Joel & Travis for asking me to contribute and for being such gracious editors.
