Girls with Slingshots 5th Anniversary

October 1, 2009

Danielle Corsetto is the cartoonist behind one of the best webcomics out there, Girls with Slingshots and it’s been five years since she started posting the comic in October 2004. 800 strips. I interviewed her last fall about the comic just before it turned four and what can I say but I love the strip and she’s absolutely fabulous.

Here’s to five more years!

PVP’s Scott Kurtz hits it out of the park (yet again)

August 14, 2009

I love Scott Kurtz’s comic strip PVP and I’ve interviewed him a couple times over the years for different outlets about the strip and his other projects. At his best Kurtz manages to skewer pop culture and those obsessed with it. (That may be part of why he’s so successful on the internet).

This month though he’s done a fabulous job of taking some very pointed hits at geek culture and Twilight, Green Lantern and GI Joe. The Green Lantern bit (I could care less about Green Lantern, BTW) is so perfect that I’m incredibly jealous I didn’t think of it. The GI Joe bit I disagree with only because it fails to mention Rachel Nichols (Seriously, Kurtz, what’s up with that?)
