Flashmob Fridays on Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland

I’ve been writing and editing articles and posts about comics for about 14 years now, all told. I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of any piece I’ve been involved with than today’s Flashmob Fridays piece on Harvey Pekar’s new and final graphic novel, Cleveland.

Excellent writing abounds from Christopher Allen, Roger Green, Scott Cederlund, and Johanna Draper Carlson. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you. Go read Flashmob Fridays on Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland.

Flashmob Fridays Returns!

If you’ve been with Trouble With Comics from the start back in 2009, you may remember a weekly feature called Flashmob Fridays. Chris and I have decided to bring it back, spinning it off into its own blog and bringing in some new writers (and some who worked on the first version of FMF) to get together each week and converge on a single comic or graphic novel. We hope you’ll join us for the new Flashmob Fridays. An introduction and archives of the original posts are up now, first new post likely to appear a week from tomorrow. Be there!
