Characters: Fifty Portraits of Contemporary Cartoonists
by Jess Ruliffson (Invisible Wounds)

The portraits in “Characters: Fifty Portraits of Contemporary Cartoonists” were created by Jess Ruliffson for a one-day exhibition that featured one hundred paintings and drawings of comic artists. The artist selected fifty of those pieces to be published in this collection. 

Jess has a knack for capturing a cartoonist’s likeness in her small gouache paintings. Those of you within the cartooning community will enjoy recognizing these familiar faces.

Tales To Behold #5
by Paul Hoppe (Journey Into Misery, Peanut)

Our heroes are recovering from the earth-shattering developments that happened in the last couple books. But they don’t have much time for a breather, as their precious off-time gets rudely interrupted by some drug dealers with strange powers. And upon their return to the Big Apple, they get attacked by – their own shadows!
