You never call! Maybe you should instead? Seriously, we'd love to know what you think about RBS.


Occasional posts from (usually) Bram and (sometimes) Monica about comics in general, this comic in particular, art, design, publishing, visual culture, and far, far too many things about actual squirrels.


Lulu Eightball takes a shot at (the city next to) my hometown this week. Ah, jokes involving insurance companies.


Work on the next issue of RBS has kind of come to a temporary halt. The local Santa Fe group is working to put together an application for a Xeric grant to get our 100-page anthology Hospital Stories printed. We've contributed eight pages, and Monica's been working on the design and layout of the book. We've got an almost-complete version done for the application, and it's just an amazing collection of work.


OK, sometimes, after posting and before moving on to the next task, I just hit that "Next Blog" button up top. And find gems like this.


A friend just loaned me Blacksad. Sure, there's the terrific noir story, the anthropomorphic characters who manage to convey more than they could if human without ever straying into cliché or cuteness, the incredible backgrounds, the watercolor coloring that ties it all together — I'd just be happy to draw a suit or trenchcoat that well.


Since moving, I really miss Richard Thompson's cartoons in The Washington Post: Richard's Poor Almanac and Cul De Sac, which are (inexplicably, since they're Post comics) unavailable on their Web site. Luckily, Josh has this terrific one archived.
