AttemptedNotFailed

This sequence shows the characters Malcolm and Amol, who feature prominently in my book, Angie Bongiolatti, when they were friends just out of college.

This isn’t a sequence from the book, but anybody who’s read the book can just enjoy this as a little cut scene.

It’ll continue tomorrow, but might no longer be officially “in continuity” because the Angie character has a different design in these old scrapped comics.

The Ink Panthers Show! Special Episode

Angie Bongiolatti Spotlight

It’s a Special Episode of The Ink Panthers Show! as Mike and Alex creep nervously back into Panther’s Lair to discuss Mike’s new book, Angie Bongiolatti. They have a fun insightful conversation about all the heavy political aspects of the book, as well as all the sex scenes. The Panthers talk about the creative process, getting at what’s really rewarding about writing long-form comics (hint: it’s not the part when you’re done with them), as well as a few announcements, including information on Mike’s new(ish) podcast.

Don’t worry, after all the comics chat, there’s a few minutes leftover in the show to get down to some Classic Panthers Slushery. Easter egg hunt stampedes, strange encounters on the subway, a city of Hobo’s toilets. Man, we missed these guys!!

Arthur Koestler’s “Memoirs of a Tightrope Walker”, from The God That Failed.

An adaptation of a portion of this 1950 essay runs throughout my new graphic novel, Angie Bongiolatti. Above is the seven page sequence that opens the book.

The MoCCA Festival is this weekend at The 69th Regiment Armory in New York, and I am going to be there.

It’ll be the official debut of my new graphic novel, Angie Bongiolatti, which I am very much looking forward to finally unloading on the general population. I’m also planning on printing up a small run of mini comics, collecting my The Comics Journal A Cartoonist’s Diary strips.

I will also be appearing on a panel, on Saturday at 1PM in Room One:

Comics and Protests Movements
Protest movements arise from Protest movements arise from communities marginalized by political institutions and mainstream media. Artwork has often given voice to underrepresented points of view, and can document grassroots social action overlooked by authorized histories. Comics artists Christopher Cardinale (Which Side Are You On?), Mike Dawson (Angie Bongiolatti), Seth Tobocman (War in the Neighborhood), and Sophie Yanow (War of Streets and Houses) have all represented and documented contemporary and historical protest movements in their comics. They will discuss the issues at stake with writer and documentary filmmaker Annie Nocenti.

Nervous about that one, (I was looking at Seth Tobocman’s War in the Neighborhood a bit as I was writing some scenes from Angie Bongiolatti) but it’s a good kind of nervous. Like, excited like.

Who is the Dark Star Crusader? 

He’s just one of the fun cards I drew for Triptych: Anything vs Everything, an exciting new nerdy card game we’re attempting to kickstart! A limited number of pledges get original art from the cards by yours truly!
