Comic Riffs on Big Nate, DC as a comics town, and the top 5 cartoon contest contestants

1. The 'Riffs Interview: Lincoln Peirce's 'BIG NATE' becomes an 'overnight' best-seller, Michael Cavna, Washington Post Comic Riffs blog June 27, 2010.

I just missed him at ALA, a disappointment because I enjoy his strip. Check the City Paper Arts Desk blog this week for my ALA report.

2. THE RIFF: Where does D.C. rate as a 'comics town'? - Not as high as this blog wants it to be, by god.

3. 'NEXT GREAT CARTOONIST' finalists offer their reactions to the contest, by Michael Cavna, June 28, 2010.

3a. Oh, and now they have to draw a Sunday strip.

Give it some time. We'll soon be on everyone's radar! (though you won't find cartoonists flocking to the area; no cheap land to be had here like Portland!)

Maybe, maybe.

BTW, the Christian Heurich art looks great. I'm really looking forward to this book.

We don't have cheap land, but we have jobs! Of course, if you have a job, you have less time to make comics.

D.C.-as-a-comics-town/region is something I want to write more about. I don't know what form it will take yet, though.
