The Comics Beat is a big fan of 'Trashed' by Derf!
For most of my life, the comings and goings of garbage was pretty much a mystery to me. When I was a kid, I put it in a can. When I lived in New York City, I dropped it down a shoot. And so on. It wasn’t until I moved out to the middle of nowhere and started taking my trash to the dump that I re

philly.com on 'Filmish': "Cartoonist Ross delivers far more than a mere history of movies in this charming, insightful comic book."
How'd this happen? It's December already, the Oscar campaigns are upon us, the bookshops and video stores (are there still video stores? - yes, a few) are decked in tinsel and candy cane, and e-commerce sites are abustle with Yuletidey pop-up ads.

'Pablo' was named one of the best graphic novels of 2015 by the Washington Post!
Among the top five are the second volume of a civil rights icon’s journey and a revisiting of “Sandman.”
In 'Will Eisner: Champion of the Graphic Novel,' noted historian Paul Levitz celebrates the master of comics storytelling by showcasing his most famous work alongside unpublished and rare materials from the family archives.
Here, we see a nostalgic look back at Eisner’s early characters from 1974. Eisner’s poster combines the probable but unprecedented combination of the Spirit and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, with less probable appearances by Uncle Sam and the Hawks of the Sea.
