See You In the Funny Papers

October 19th, 2006 by Alex

Big up to the lovely and talented Jeff Newelt, aka JahFurry, SMITH magazine’s contributing editor for comics, who sent along this video, complete with explanation (not to mention a subject line — “MUST be on SMITH, asap,” and he was right):

Writer / Cartoonist Bob Fingerman — whose hilarious junior high zombie tale RECESS PIECES (think Our Gang, crossed with classic MAD’s Kurtzman/Elder, crossed with George Romero) was just published — created a video “homage to the great social engineering shorts of days gone by.” Fingerman shows us what goes into the making of an “Autobiographical Comic,” a process that apparently involves frequent visits to the altar of St. Onan.

You’ll go blind that way.
