We asked some of the most talented ladies (and gentlemen) working in comics and animation today, along with some of the smartest writers we know including Lauren Weinstein, Jeffrey Brown, Sarah Oleksyk, Gabrielle Bell, Justin Hall, Ron Rege Jr., Vanessa Davis, Josh Neufeld, Andi Zeisler, Angie Wang, and a whole lot more, to “but” into the heated discussion about the much more level but still contradictory playing field both sexes are struggling to find their footing on today.

Sam Henderson's 1996 collection of his early mini-comics is revised and available once again. See what his work looked like back when he was poor(er). Henderson's drawing is intentionally crude, but it has the same kind of energy you see in the work of today's best gag cartoonists, whose drawing also tends to be a little basic. Extremely low-brow humor that almost parodies low-brow humor - it's enjoyable on either level.

The Summer Fun Issue! Sam Henderson returns with another hilarious Magic Whistle. Dirty Danny, The Brube, 'He Aims To Please' and all your favorites are back, plus a bonus strip drawn by Dean Haspiel. Features an 'alternate' cover by Dyna Moe. One of the funniest people in comics is Sam Henderson. Henderson's drawings have the same sort of energy and feel as the classic gag cartoonists, but with a far more twisted take on comedy -- extremely low-brow humor that almost parodies low-brow humor -- it's enjoyable on many levels. Join his regular cast of characters: Dirty Danny, The Brube, He Aims To Please, Robot Duckling, Monroe Simmons, and hundreds of others, for a unique and very funny comic book experience. Over the years Sam has contributed to many dozens of anthologies and produced the comic book Magic Whistle for over 20 years. Magic Whistle was nominated four years in a row for a Harvey Award for Special Award for Humor. His Scene But Not Heard comic appeared in every issue of Nickelodeon Magazine from 1996 to 2010. Sam was also an Emmy-nominated writer of a number of Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon shows. His gag cartoons appear regularly in the curiously pink newspaper The New York Observer.

In the days after September 11th, with the ruins of his job, relationship, and city crumbling around him, cartoonist and roustabout K. Thor Jensen packed a backpack, bought a bus pass and took to the open road. His 60-day, 10,000-mile journey is chronicled in this ragtag romance. From riding the back of a burning couch in Birmingham, Alabama to aiding stray dogs in Butte, Montana, building a giant papier-mache vagina in Columbus, Ohio to smuggling drugs across the border in El Paso, Texas, Jensen searches for the last remnants of a meaningful life as he rides the Greyhound bus. Stopping over in eighteen cities, he interacts with a diverse cast of supporting characters, and they each recount a story of their own to him, cobbling together a modern Canterbury Tales for the slacker generation. Red Eye, Black Eye is a fractured portrait of life in 21st century America, as the protagonist and his compatriots drink, fight, stumble and fall their way through their travels. It's also riotously funny, charmingly crude and beautifully drawn.

Great moments in rock 'n' roll. Everyone has at least one. For three years, Joel Orff collected people's stories, illustrated them, and posted them on his web site. Though several of these comics feature well-known musicians, they aren't necessarily about music. They may be life-defining experiences, or they may be small and sublime occurrences that the narrator has never forgotten, or moments that they would have liked to have forgotten, but couldn't, because they made too good of a story. Nominated for the YALSA 2004 Popular Paperbacks Young Adult booklist, Strum and Drang is a funny and sometimes poignant book about people struggling with and celebrating their circumstances, often through unlikely forms of self-expression.
