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.
I will be at APE this weekend. I’ll be at the AWP table along with Alex Holden, Vanessa Davis and others. I will also be part of a couple Fantagraphics signings. Details here.
The Drama magazine just came out with what appears to be the biggest issue to date. There are interviews with Julie Doucet, Elvis Studio, tons of other art and a LOT more comics than last time. Some of the other contributing cartoonists are: Vanessa Davis, Zak Sally, PaperRad, Travis Robertson, Tom Gauld and tons of others. Oh and one of those comics pages is a one-page comic by me. Should be available in stores now, or get it directly from the publisher HERE.
The nice people at The Drama Magazine have put out another beautiful issue. Besides the usual gorgeous art and design, this issue has an expanded comics section. There are pages by Vanessa Davis, Ron Regé, Nicolas Robel, Marc Bell, lots of others and by me(!). I’m pretty excited to be in such good company.
