Optical Sloth seems to be reviewing a lot of the cartoonists I enjoy. (i.e. Robert Boyd, Lark Pien, Dylan Horrocks, Gabrielle Bell, John Pham, Kirrily Schell, Ms. Lasko-Gross, etc.)

I should probably send some stuff to them.

What are the two most widely distributed newsstand comics anthologies, that have endured the test of time?

Heavy Metal, and World War III Illustrated. You can find ‘em both at any decent place that sells magazines, heck even most Borders outlets.

There’s some message there, I’m sure. I like aspects of both. Heavy Metal introducted me to Moebius, while WW3 featured Kate Evans and Fly. If these anthologies can survive, why not more?

Watched Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘Kiki’s Delivery Service’ last night. The story equates magic with creativity…which might explain why mainstream comics writers like Alan Moore and Grant Morrison are reinventing themselves as magicians. Even Dylan Horrocks makes some noises in that direction…

And I can see where the connection is made…what could be more ‘magical’ than creating music, theatre, comics where there were none before? Where does this stuff come from?
