I am THE one and only Noah Van Sciver, cartoonist/comic strip artist and illustrator. I’m best known for my alternative comic book series Blammo and my weekly comic strip 4 Questions which appears every week in the alternative newspaper Westword. My work has appeared in The Best American comics 2011, Mad magazine, Sunstone, The Comics Journal, MOME and numerous comics anthologies. I’m currently hard at work on my first graphic novel The Hypo which will be published by Fantagraphics books upon its completion. I’m a cancer and I  hate seafood, and adventure.   noahvansciver@gmail.com

  1. Hi Noah –

    Sounds like you’ve been going through some rough stuff lately. I write a comics column for the http://www.revolutionsf.com website, and just wondered if you’d be interested in doing an e-mail interview sometime, and to feature some info on your comics. I’ve been thinking about doing something that celebrates the indy comics more, and I could possibly start that with you. Let me know if you’d be interested.

    Good luck with everything –

    Hi Noah! Interesting thoughts on Dylan. I gotta say, I couldn’t agree more. AV

    I follow you on twitter, and honest to god love your comics, think you are really setting a good tone for artists in our generation, so don’t get so down on yourself!

  5. Noah–I’ve published a children’s biography on Elijah Lovejoy and recently came across your comic treatment of his final stand at the warehouse. Impressive. Just wanted to let you know I posted a link to it on my author Facebook page this week. I hope it will draw some viewers over to your blog here so they can enjoy the Lovejoy comic and see more of your work. Take care!

    Hey I just stumbled upon your excellent Coronado strip on Tumblr, and I wanted to know how the use of a band’s lyrics or just the use of a well-known musical figure (not drawn to match any particular published online photo) in a strip works copyright-wise. Under what circumstances do I need to start thinking about asking permission from celebrities and other well-established musicians? I myself double as an aspiring cartoonist and music junkie and I have always wanted to include rock music references and poke fun at folks like Bono and Morrissey in a sort of South Park-like fashion. Copyright issues have always sort of confused me.

    Anyway, awesome work!

    Noah, I was really sorry not to meet you at BEA. Every time I swung by the Fantagraphics booth, you were somewhere else! Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed The Hypo, and that I was pleased I was able to get it on the Hottest Graphic Novels 2012 list. I look forward to adding it to my library’s collection when it’s out!
