Yes, It's been ages since the podcast blessed the world with its sage wisdom! Jim and Frank couldn't appear in the last episode because Frank was busy promoting his graphic novel. But they are back now and better than ever as they celebrate a super spectacular All Comics Episode of the Jim and Frank Podcast.
So I randomly selected an address on that street, which turns out to be home to a business enterprise. I'm mailing it tomorrow morning. This issue of Morty Comix will probably be tossed in the trash or recycling, but I hope you readers enjoyed the narrative. Actually, in many ways, these blogposts are the real Morty Comix, the hardcopy product is residue.
Obscuro comix in action!
I love the first 45 seconds, in which Harvey enacts a final Pekar 1-pager for us. A month before Harvey Pekar died, Frank did a skype interview with him for a series of articles he was writing about the creative processes of comic book creators. Here are the first 7 minutes of that conversation.
We think this may be the last interview that Harvey ever gave.

We are happy to have helped to support The Desert Peach in Concert Kickstarter campaign!
The Desert Peach started as a comic book created by Donna Barr, chronicling the adventures of the eponymous protagonist, Erwin "The Desert Fox" Rommel's fictitious homosexual younger brother, the "Desert Peach."
The Desert Peach was originally produced as a musical 21 years ago and they are looking to recreate with paid artists and an even higher production quality.
Learn more about The Desert Peach and the musical campaign.

Frank and Jim return with another All Comics Episode! Frank talks about the big graphic novel he just finished with Seattle master cartoonist David Lasky: Carter Family Comics. Their book has received rave reviews from Kim Deitch and Art Spiegelman... so... there's that. Plus,they cover the history of cartooning in the Northwest!
One of the best cover artists in the Northwest spoke to Cartoonists Northwest members October 19th. Jeff Willis has created artwork for such character titles: Looney Toons, Rugrats, Garfield, and much more.
Jeff is now a full time artist with Seattle-based Big Fish, a casual-based gaming company. As previously mentioned he started his career creating a lot of excellent cover art, but now he has moved on and is better known as the creator of Gutsy McDivot. This is the mascot for Fairway Solitaire, the most successful title that Big Fish has produced.
Jeff recently spoke about his start in the illustration/cartooning industry and how he also began working with video game design. He had a brief stint at Microsoft Casual Games, where he designed the user interface for their Texas Holdem Game. This led him to Big Fish, where he has worked for seven years.
It was an honor to hear him speak at CNW. The CNW site has much more information about his recent interview.
