How much time - if any - do you spend on the Web?... -Like everyone else, I check my e-mail 300 times a day

Gracias a
Luciano Brom que es
un gran coleccionista de comics
me entere que:
"El New York Times colgó
la tira dominical de
Daniel Clowes,
Mister Wonderful,

que llegó este semana
a su conclusión
luego de cinco meses!"
La historia nos presenta a Marshall,
un divorciado maduro en una precaria
situación económica
que ha accedido a su
primera cita a ciegas en seis años.
su acompañante se retrasa más y más,
aflorar su inseguridad, tristeza y soledad.
Pero a partir de esa mínima premisa el mundo
interior de Marshall acabará
dando un giro
completo en una noche
llena de peripecias,
giros y notas de humor agridulce."

se puede bajar entera aca.

Lo curioso es como vas viendo cuando moves el PDF
las diferentes capas de color y linea de los dibujos, genial para analizar y tener el cuenta, muy interesante
que lo hayan dejado asi de "abierto" e dibujo ;)

Aca y aca abajo
entrevista que le dio a papercuts

1) What are you working on?

A quick glance through my sketchbook reveals four in-progress comic-strip projects and five movie projects, two of which admittedly consist of less than a page of scrawled, inscrutable notes. Four or five of these will wither away over the next six months, while the others will grow strong, consuming the remains of their lesser brethren.
Upcoming published work: a cover for the Penguin Classics “Frankenstein”; a story for the Zadie Smith-edited “The Book of Other People”; a cover for the upcoming 2nd volume of Yale’s “Anthology of Graphic Fiction”; a 10th-anniversary edition of “Ghost World (Ghost World Special Ed.)”; and, beginning on Sept. 16, a 20-episode comic strip for the New York Times Magazine called, as of this morning, “Mister Wonderful.”
2) How much time - if any - do you spend on the Web? Is it a distraction or a blessing?
Like everyone else, I check my e-mail 300 times a day. I’m kind of an incompetent and unfocussed “Web surfer” (that sounds like something my grandmother would say - surely there’s a more current phrase?) and rely on others to send me all the latest links. As such, I’m always the last to know about Britney’s vagina, for example.
In the old days, an artist would have to maintain a “morgue file” - a collection of photographic reference of things like cars, refrigerators, buildings, etc. Now, within seconds you can find a picture of the house you lived in when you were seven.

3) Whose books are generally shelved next to yours in bookstores? How does it feel to be sitting between them?
If one of my books should have the good fortune to be found in a “real” bookstore, it’s usually stuck in some indifferently assembled “graphic novel” section along with the “How To Draw Manga” books. This is a dubious advance from the days when the occasional mis-ordered copy of “Ghost World” would sit amid “Dilbert” and “Mad Libs” in the humor section. Occasionally (i.e. once) I’ve found myself between Cheever and Coetzee in Fiction, and more often in some baffling and idiosyncratic “youth culture” section along with the books of autopsy photos and prison tattoos. ;)
