For a medium that repeatedly denounces the art world, elitism, and academism, comics sure are getting lots of play in that world and benifiting from it. Expect every single godam usual supect from non-superhero comicdom. It should a good show, though. It is always interesting to look at work like this in its naked form. The "originals" of each page is like a behind-the-scenes look, for better or worse. But seriously, comic people, stop bitching so much about everything. You are having your cake and eating it too!

One the way to work a funny man was spoted sitting at a street cafe...sporting a fidora, a three piece suit and round glasses. What an oddball! Oh, wait, it is the world famous Candian comic artist Seth! Creator of Palookaville and other favorites. He carefully smoke his cigarette and had a well worn leather attache' case. Just like in the comics! Art or Idiocy? is star-struck!
