Friday Review: Mooncop

You might be asking, "what is Mooncop about." And then I look at you and say, "It's about a cop. On the moon." A premise so simple maybe you could have come up with it yourself. But you didn't!

Autobiographical Comics

I'm getting ready to start work on the third issue of my auto bio comic Bearded Comic Book Enthusiast and thought that, as such, this week would be a good time to reflect on the genre.

This… Continue reading Traditional Drawing

The Creative Process

The question I get asked the most, besides "What are you doing with your life?!" and "Why is it called Hot Cakes?" is about where my ideas come from.

Friday Review: the World of Edena

It's the last Friday Review of 2017, so let's finish up with a bang: Moebius! I've been meaning to dive into the work of Moebius for some time now, but I've had trouble finding some. Then the people of Dark Horse started doing the Lord's work (sorry Fantagraphics), and I found this collected, translated edition… Continue reading Friday Review: the World of Edena
