  • Comic books have most real-life situations beat in terms of parental complexity. For many characters, parental figures and/or mentors are in constant flux, and it’s not uncommon for a character to be raised by people other than their birth parents. With that in mind, we took a closer look at some of the more influential birth mothers of comic book history.

  • Rick Chillot’s first job in publishing was in a corporate library, sniffing out story leads for writers and editors. He later went on to write and edit for magazines and books, worked on early Internet ventures during the heyday of AOL and Netscape, had a brief stint at a newspaper, edited a college’s alumni mag, survived as a freelancer for nearly a decade, and crept into Quirk Books four years ago as a writer/editor.

    We’ve come to the end of our first-ever Mini-Comics Week at Quirk Books. Have we said everything there is to say about mini-comics? Of course not! Buuuuut, we hope we’ve given you enough motivation to explore the mini-comic universe further.

    Before we say goodbye, here’s one more approach to making a mini-comic of your own.

  • Hey guess what? It’s the penultimate day of Mini-Comics Week here at Quirk Books. If you’re not caught up, take a quick gander at yesterday’s post, where we discussed the basics of creating your own mini-comic. Go ahead and review it, we’ll wait here. Hmm hmmm hmmm… *tuneless whistle* Dum de dum…hot in the office today. But it’s cool outside. Good day to wear one of those shirts with the zip-off sleeves…hey, let’s look at a mini-comic while we’re waiting…

  • Welcome back to Mini-Comics Week on Quirkbooks.com! We've been yakkin' about mini-comics for a couple of days now. But here's someone else's eloquent summary of why they're so great:

    I've been reading comics since I was a wee'yin, drawing comics since high school and writing about comics since college. In all of this time, I have narrowed down the thing I love most of all in the entirety of the medium: comics written and drawn by amateurs, doing whatever they want and talking about the things which matter most to them.

  • Yesterday we told you how much we love mini-comics (a lot) and why they’re so awesome (too many reasons to fit inside these parentheses).
