The picks of the week from around the web.

  • Transatlantica on comics. The latest issue of this online academic journal features a selection of articles on comics, many of them of high quality.
  • Fabrice Neaud at the Beaux-Arts in Lyon, 2009. Great video in which the emperor of autobiographical cartooning talks about his work.
  • Fine comics reviews. Shaenon Garrity on Richard Thompson’s Cul de Sac and Ken Parille on Charles Burns’ X’ed Out (to which he adds some notes here).
