The Comics Journal #304 features Gary Groth in conversation with outspoken Tasmanian cartoonist Simon Hanselmann, who discusses how his tragicomedy webcomic starring a witch, a cat, and an owl became an internationally acclaimed, best-selling phenomenon, collected in books such as Megahex and Bad Gateway. This issue also highlights the labor and economics issues facing the medium — the past and future of organizing a comics union, work-for-hire contracts, and how comic conventions can better serve creators — with the Journal’s hallmark candor. Other features include an exclusive look at the unfinished graphic novel that Eisner and Geisel Award winner Geoffrey Hayes was working on before his untimely death in 2017, a peak inside the lush sketchbook of Sophie Franz, a timely work by Brazilian cartoonist Laura Lannes, a reconsideration of the comics canon by Skin Horse cartoonist Shaenon K. Garrity, and more!

King Geek vs the Cheerleader Julia Farrow has it all. She's got the friends, the grades, the smile, the perfect reputation, and the new boyfriend who adores her. All in all, life is pretty much perfect for Grover High's favorite cheerleader. Until she's tagged, that is. That ridiculous Geeks Gone Wild hashtag is still going strong, and while Julia has managed to steer clear of the drama unfolding between the jocks and the geeks, one embarrassing photo is enough to flip her world upside down. The boyfriend? He's out. The friends? Turns out they're more like frenemies. And that perfect reputation? Well, that's all about to crumble as the truth comes out about Julia and her secret, passionate love affair with all things comics. But Julia isn't about to go down without a fight. She's spent a lifetime honing her perfect image and when it's ruined, there's really only one person to blame. The school paper's editor-in-chief and the guy behind the hashtag—Matt Cartwright. Sure, he claims he's innocent, but if it wasn't for him she'd still be on track to be prom queen. He might not be able to fix this disaster that her life has become, but there's one way he can make it up to her. He can bring her along to the comics convention he's assigned to cover for his internship with the local paper. He's got the tickets, she needs an escape, and really, it's the least he can do. She's just tagging along as a fan, that's all. It's not like they have to be friends or anything. And those kisses? Well, what happens at comic-con stays at comic-con...right?

This book examines the ways in which individual moments of violence develop, and are presented, in comics and graphic novels. It raises questions about depiction and the act of showing violence, but it also considers the ways in which violence can affect those involved over the long term. The impact of gender on violence, as well as the nature of sexual violence, are both considered here. Contributors discuss the ways in which violent acts can be rendered palatable (for example through humour) but also how they can create enormous trauma and long lasting repercussions for both perpetrators and victims. Together with Contexts of Violence in Comics, it offers a nuanced examination of the ways in which violence in comics is presented in different texts, genres, cultures and contexts.

Dan Spiegle is one of the most respected—and hardest working—comic artists of the last sixty years, with a career spanning the Golden Age of comics through the Modern era. From his beginnings on the Hopalong Cassidy newspaper strip, to his thirty-year tenure on Dell and Gold Key’s licensed TV and Movie adaptions (Lost in Space, Korak, Magnus Robot Fighter, Mighty Sampson, Buck Rogers), Dan’s work is admired by fans and professionals alike. During the 1980s, he worked at DC Comics on Batman, Unknown Soldier, Tomahawk, Jonah Hex, Teen Titans, and the fan-favorite reboot of Blackhawk (taking the character back to its World War II roots), as well as his popular Crossfire series for Eclipse Comics, Dark Horse’s Indiana Jones series, and more. In this book, author John Coates documents Dan's entire life in comics, through interviews filled with insight into the comic industry, colorful anecdotes of meeting celebrities, plus an examination of Dan’s artistic process from script to finished drawing, as well as personal reflections by Dan’s family on growing up with a father in comics. It includes dozens of images of Dan’s work, along with personal photos of family and industry peers, and numerous private commission drawings. If you’ve read comics between the mid-1950s through the 2000s, you’ve probably enjoyed a comic with Dan’s art—now learn about his life in comic art. Includes a Foreword by longtime collaborator Mark Evanier and an Afterword by Sergio Aragones.
