Deconstructing Comics #496: Oglaf: Sword, Sorcery, and Sex

Oglaf

If you like your comedy sexy (or your porn funny), you’re probably a fan of Oglaf, Doug Bayne and Trudy Cooper‘s long-running Web comic. This week, Tim calls up Doug and Trudy in Sydney to talk about the fantasy-parody elements of the strip, the missing main character Ivan, the diversity of sexual orientations in the strip, why they rarely table at conventions, and more.

Deconstructing Comics #293: Jim Woodring and the Sydney Graphic Festival

FrankThe recent Sydney Graphic Festival, held August 20 & 21, featured a variety of artists from comics and other media in panels and the like. Kumar attended, and discusses what he saw there (and the one huge, disappointing cancellation) before we get to the main event: his interview with creator Jim Woodring. Woodring is best known for the Frank series of dialog-free, surrealistic comics. Kumar investigates what’s inspired Woodring’s work.
