Via comicsreporter.com, an outstanding documentary on Osamu Tezuka. It’s got some wonderful moments, particularly the way it captures the balance of creative drive and endurance alongside the sacrifice of domestic reward for creative fruit. Excellent stuff.
Lots of news from Mars today! Here are the results of six new studies of the samples the Curiosity rover took during its first 100 days on the red planet.
Paul Pope’s Psychenaut (w/ a Corto Maltese ramp up drawing for photoset design purposes)
Psychenaut is a work in progress that will most likely end up published in french by Dargaud. Psychenaut has been described by Pope as a reaction to the works of cartoonists like Winsor McCay and Rick Veitch whose work deals with dreams using the “repetitive imagery in [Pope’s] dreams." Essentially, if Pope dreams about hanging out with Corto Maltese, he can use comics to make sense of it, or he could just use comics to document it. Psychenaut is Pope’s "for myself" project that will be finished when it’s finished.

One of my favorite spx anthologies (tho 2001 was the best). Pretty sure this is the first one I contributed to, providing interviews.
