Today I’ve posted my inaugural column–dubbed DWYCK in memory of Guru–over at Hooded Utilitarian, one of the liveliest and highest-falutin’ spots in the comics blogosphere. I’m honoured to be part of the team there, and excited about now being able to express my disagreements with everyone there from the inside, instead of just their bustling comments section. Thanks guys!

For this first column, I figured I’d write a little about cartooning and some thoughts I’ve been having about its role in the history of art since antiquity. What do M. Crépin and Doryphoros have in common? Tune in to DWYCK and see.
