Recommendation of the Month -- I want to point out that the next issue of The Comics Journal (#264) has an AMAZING interview with cartoonist Ivan Brunetti.

The only lengthy work I've read of his was HAW!, and I never really knew what to make of it; the guy obviously has a great deal of talent, used it in HAW! in ways that I found hard to understand.

In a long, in-depth interview with Gary Groth, Brunetti talks about his life experiences and how they affected his comics. There's also enough preview strips from Schizo #4 (his next scheduled release) that I am DYING to see the entire thing. If you read TOP SHELF ASKS THE BIG QUESTIONS, you may remember his tribute to Charles Schulz; the new stuff is in that more moderated, formal style, but it's all about his horrific relationships with women. It looks like fascinating stuff, and I bet whichever year it comes out, Schizo #4 is going to be one of the best, most interesting and entertaining comics of the year.

So keep your eyes open for The Comics Journal #264 -- it should be on sale within the next couple of weeks. Ask your retailer.

If you'll excuse me, I'm off to go read the rest of it now.
