Interesting post at Drawn.ca that talks about a new book out dealing with Joe Shuster’s “adult” cartoons when he was down on his luck after losing the rights to Superman.

Fantastic list. It’s especially great to see recognition for some of my favorite webcomic artists; I didn’t even know many of these people were Canucks!
