Comics DC interviews cartoonist (and homegirl) Liza Donnelly.


What work are you most proud of?
Getting into The New Yorker, particularly at age 24. I am also very proud of the book that I wrote, Funny Ladies: The New Yorker’s Greatest Women Cartoonists.  I am writing an updated version to be published next year.  I am proud to have brought the history of the women drawing cartoons to light.

Dorkaholics interviews animation and comic strip cartoonist Bob Scott.

Neil Bui (NB): With the decline of newspaper readership, comics have still been able to forge on in the digital format. What is your opinion on the decline of print and its impact on comics? Is there any real difference between a printed strip comic and a digital one?

Bob Scott (BS): It is hard to not mourn the heyday of newspapers.  There is nothing to replace the reader numbers that came from the daily paper delivered to every house in the country. But, time marches ahead and so must we, right?  I  see a bright side to digital comics. Without the constraints of a daily newspaper comic strip, strip artists are free to do whatever they like in terms of the size of the art and color, and there are some wonderful comics online that take full advantage of the medium. For me in particular, since I love the classic comic strips of the 1960s and 70s, I model my strip after that format. I love black and white strips.  The pure ink on paper.
