So Jason Little now has an online portfolio completely dedicated to 3D comics, all of which he’s done the actual 3D conversion for. It’s quite impressive – a process undoubtedly meticulous. You can follow this interesting project here. Though, you must provide your own 3D specs.

We forgot to mention this near its original point of publication, but Sophie Yanow spoke to Simon Hanselmann way back in early September, grabbing the scoop on the then forthcoming United States tour with fellow Cute Boys Michael DeForge and Patrick Kyle. Their conversation was posted at The Comics Journal, and it can be read here.
If you’ve followed any comics people on Twitter in the last month, then you know the tour was a success. Yet, read this interview anyway, and act like it’s still September 8th. When all was good.
Zak Sally’s ongoing project Recidivist is now another volume heavier. He completed it just in time for last weekend’s Rain Taxi Festival, and it should soon be on sale online.

Jason Little drew an awesome rendition of our logo! That’s Borb, the titular homeless man from Jason’s comic strip, striking the caveman pose.
Expect more Jason and Uncivilized Books this Spring. In the mean time, check out Borb on Jason’s blog.
Today (Saturday, Oct. 11, 10am – 6pm) we’re camping out at the Rain Taxi Book Festival.

Don’t miss their panel at 3:30! Tom Kaczynski will have advance copies of The Mammoth Book of Cult Comics in which he has a comic.
Stop by and say hi! Table 63!
Rob McMonigal reviewed MariNaomi’s Dragon’s Breath and Other True Stories for Panel Patter, as part of the site’s coverage of SPX debuts.
One of the things I really like about Mari’s work as an autbio author is that she does change things up on a regular basis. While I enjoy the work of others, their static style means that a heartbreaking moment and a silly one can get the same panel layouts or visuals … It reminds me a lot of Anne Thalheimer or the limited work I’ve read of John Porcellino, where there’s no set form to how the comic has to look.
Alexis Somerville offers a positive review of Gabrielle Bell’s Truth is Fragmentary at For Books’ Sake.
Bell’s artistic style is perfect for this type of diaristic comic – simple but lively line drawings which communicate the atmosphere of the situations … Truth is Fragmentary is a funny, thought-provoking and exquisitely observed book.
