ICYMI -- Small Press Comics Criticism and Whatnot for 3/13/17 to 3/19/17

Highlighting some great small press comics criticism being published, as well as other random things that have caught my eye over the past week.

COMICS CRITICISM

* Katie Skelly on Eleanor Davis' LIBBY'S DAD, which "explores the landscapes between language and reality, threat and violence."

* Andy Oliver on Eleanor Crewes' THE TIMES I KNEW I WAS GAY, in which "every section reads like a little aside to the audience, replete with small and seemingly inconsequential details that nevertheless take on a deeper intimacy and relevance as the reader becomes more invested..."

* Lucy Bourton draws attention to the fact that Andy Rementer has a new zine out called GOOD MORNING.

WHATNOT 

* Kevin Budnik talks to KELSEY WROTEN about "the grand philosophy of storytelling through comics, and a little peek at Kelsey's book with Uncivilized Books slated to come out in 2018."

* NOU, SARAH FERRICK, MAGGIE UMBER, and RAIGHNE HOGAN talk about the 2dcloud Spring Collection Kickstarter.

* Tom Spurgeon interviews RONALD WIMBERLY.

* Adam Griffiths interviews SALLY CANTIRINO.

* The Nib put up a piece called NEVER AGAIN? which features five Jewish cartoonists on the use of holocaust imagery in Trump's America. 

* Zainab Akhtar is over on the AV Club pointing out 10 FEMALE CARTOONISTS YOU NEED TO KNOW

* Clayton Purdom introduces us to this 20-minute documentary by Kyrre Lien called THE INTERNET WARRIORS.
