Past Obsession: An Interview With ‘Photobooth: A Biography’ Author Meags Fitzgerald


Last week Meags Fitzgerald's new graphic memoir Photobooth: A Biography debuted and completely blew me away. Fitzgerald is an artist who works in a variety of mediums, including improv, comics, and photobooth photography.

Photobooth, published by Condundrum Press, is not just Fizgerald's love letter to the seemingly dying phenomenon of the chemical photobooth. The author intertwines historical information about the creation and evolution of the photobooth with stories about her interactions with them, and how they changed her life. It's a book about a woman who has come to passionately love something so much that it takes over too much of her life -- an idea that should resonate with many readers.

Remi Noel Takes Tiny Batman On A Series Of Slightly Depressing Adventures [Art]

Photo by Rémi Noël

I think we can all agree that you can improve virtually anything by adding Batman to it, right? It's just one of those unavoidable truths of the world, proven over and over again by how great things get on those rare occasions when the World's Greatest Detective shows up. I mean, look, I like Alice In Wonderland just fine, but when you swap out Alice for Batman and it becomes the story of a haberdashery-themed supervillain with cybernetic mind control hats. That's way better.

I'm getting a little off-track here, but what I'm trying to get at is that there's some magic to be found in adding Batman to everyday situations, which is exactly what french artist Rémi Noël has done with a series of photographs. The compelling series of photos find Batman everywhere from a laundromat to a can of beans, and they're pretty fantastic. Check a few of 'em out below!

Chow Kar Hoo’s ‘Heroes Next Door’ Exhibition Pits Super-Heroes Aganst Daily Annoyances


If today's release of Hawkeye #1 didn't satisfy your desire for super-heroes facing more down-to-Earth problems, I've got some good news. As spotted on Kotaku, Hong Kong photographer Chow Kar Hoo has an exhibition based around the idea of super-heroes dealing with parking tickets, day jobs and other annoyances of everyday life -- like poor Kamen Rider above, who should really know better than to leave his bike in a tow-away zone...

Vintage Photographs Feature Old-Timey Superheroes and Villains [Art]


Do you long for the good-old days when villainesses tatted lace costumes and masked men wore three-piece suits instead of spandex? The Marvellini Brothers are spinning an alternate history of the world with their vintage superhero portraits, imagining an earlier era of costumed crimefighters...

Hitting the Floor of C2E2: The Photo Time Lapse [C2E2]


As visitors of this past weekend's C2E2 return to their regularly-scheduled lifestyles and allow themselves to process the comics, toys and various plagues they may or may not have acquired over the 3-day convention, it's a fine time to reflect on what went down on the show floor...

C2E2 Photo Roundup: The Creators [C2E2]


Even though costumed con goers may seem like the most camera-ready segment of comics culture, the creators of the funnybooks themselves seem to dig their own closeups now and again. It's a good thing too, because walking through C2E2's Artist Alley and assorted publisher booths might have made for a pretty bland experience if not for creators' uncanny ability to sense even the most candid photography equipment from afar...

Kanye West Digs Craig McDean’s Superhero Fashion Photography


From kids clad in terry-cloth capes to cosplayers duking it out at conventions, super hero fashion always looks a little better in concept than in practice - that is, unless you're Craig McDean.

As pointed out by The Beat, the British designer/photographer/filmmaker's fairly awesome comic book-inspired threads can be seen on none other than Kanye West's blog (or as he calls it, his universe)...
