  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 –

    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!
