 Seth, born Gregory Gallant, is one of the seminal alternative cartoonists. His comic Palookaville, which began in 1991, continues today; issue 23 (summer 2017) will complete the serialization of Clyde Fans, twenty years in the making and arguably Seth’s magnum opus. He has produced the seminal It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken (1996; originally serialized in Palookaville), Wimbledon Green (2005), George Sprott (1894-1975) (2009; originally serialized in the New York Times Magazine), and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists (2011), in addition to numerous shorter strips and illustrations.

Ethos Journal 3.2 “Cultural Artifacts in the Anthropocene”-- DEADLINE EXTENDED

Ethos Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Ethos: A Digital Review of the Arts, Humanities, and Public Ethics—a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary online journal and digital forum—invites submissions for its August 2017 special issue on the Anthropocene. In 2016, the International Commission on Stratigraphy met to discuss whether or not to formally define our current geological epoch as the “Anthropocene.” Despite the fact that the term has not been officially sanctioned, it has been widely adopted by popular scientists, social theorists, humanities scholars and others since its coining in 2000 by Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer.

Funny in the Funnies

Studies in American Humor
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

Humor was the original scaffolding upon which American comic books were built. We have not historically called them “funny books” for nothing. Today, however, humor-based comics and graphic novels have been relatively marginalized by both scholars and contemporary readers alike. The focus of this special issue of Studies in American Humor, ser. 4, 4, no. 2 (October 2018), will be the comic side of comics, the funny that helped make the funnies. We are looking for essays that discuss graphic humor in periodicals from historical, thematic, and theoretical perspectives.
