The gallant gentlemen of comics


Eagle-eyed comics scholar and friend of Drawn and Quarterly Jeet Heer has a lovely little piece on the Comics Comics blog in which he points out a curiously serendipitous connection between Drawn & Quarterly artist Seth and renowned 1960s kids’ comics creator John Stanley. Of course, as any astute fan already knows, Seth is designing the John Stanley Library, an ongoing series of books published by Drawn & Quarterly collecting a selection of work from Stanley’s heyday.

Speaking of the John Stanley Library, the newest volume hits shelves this week to much fanfare and anticipation! Nancy Volume 1 is the first in a series collecting Stanley’s interpretation of the beloved Ernie Bushmiller character.
