Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men Preview Pages

I’m late running this, but the art is so lovely I don’t think it matters that Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men #1 came out two weeks ago. Written by Evan Dorkin and illustrated by Benjamin Dewey, the four-issue miniseries continues the Eisner-winning series about dogs that fight magical creatures. Here are the two covers as well as five preview pages. Dewey does a terrific job capturing realistic dogs while giving them the expressiveness they need for the […]

What’s neat, beyond seeing a cartoon-ish seasonal piece of art, is how the site presents the painting. The second half of the article analyzes the layout and some of […]

Should Sex Work Be Illegal? A Comic

Erika Moen and Lux Alptraum put together a comic called “Feminists Should Support Decriminalizing Sex Work. Here’s Why.” It’s great cartooning and insightful education on a topic many people haven’t thought about. To keep the focus on the content instead of prurient images, sex work is represented as a red umbrella, an excellent choice of symbolism. Although there’s a lot of text in this piece, as there needs to be, the images contribute understanding instead of simply illustrating what’s being […]

I enjoyed her previous book of diary comics, Between Gears, so I’m eagerly anticipating this memoir, particularly given the unique topic. When she left her life in Portland to move to Los Angeles and pursue a job in animation, Natalie Nourigat realized that despite her research, nothing truly prepared her for the wild world that awaited […]
