He Did It All for the Nyuki – Part 7

Posted November 2, 2001 By Kevin Ott

KO: Was Columbus a good town to work in? JH: I don’t think anything would have happened the way it did if I hadn’t been in Columbus. I really attribute it not only the owners of The Laughing Ogre, but the environment, and the fact that there was this place with friendly people who were […]

KO: When you look at Cow-Boy these days, how do you think of it? JH: I still like it. It still makes me laugh. KO: You don’t look at Cow-Boy now the same way you look at your older strips? JH. No. Uh-uh. There are things I look at and say, “I’d change that. I […]

He Did It All for the Nyuki – Part 5

KO: Your first book, Cow-Boy, was published by The Laughing Ogre, a comic shop in Columbus, Ohio. Did you get your start in Columbus? JH: I was a cartoonist as a little kid. I drew as a little kid. I think I remember my first gig being the Crestview seventh grade yearbook, where I did […]

He Did It All for the Nyuki – Part 4

KO: Are you hoping to achieve that with The Sandwalk Adventures as well? JH: Well, Sandwalk has potential to be much higher profile, because it deals with Darwin and it deals with evolution. And because those two things are so contentious. Part of the desire to produce The Sandwalk Adventures is because I’m a Darwinophile, […]

He Did It All for the Nyuki – Part 3

KO: When I first read the book, the two parts that struck me specifically were Nyuki’s death in the end, and the part at the beginning of the fourth chapter where a bee from the neighboring hive tries to invade Nyuki’s hive, and is then killed by the rest of the bees. JH: Tha’s probably […]

KO: How old is your son? JH: My son is two right now. But I wrote Clan Apis when I was just married and planning to have kids, so I guess I always thought in those terms. I guess — this is going to sound screwy — but as far as things like that are […]

Winds of Change, or More Hot Air?

Posted November 2, 2001 By Dave Thomer

“When in human history has positive change not been incredibly costly, selfless and bloody?” Christian Gossett asked that question in an interview on this site, almost a year ago, and it’s been at the back of my mind ever since. Not News is dedicated to the idea that people can come together, talk through problems, […]

Quick. Name an Eisner-award nominated comic artist and writer who also has a Ph.D in biology and teaches college-level science classes. The answer is easy, mostly because there aren’t many people in the industry that fit anything even remotely resembling that description (It’s hard to imagine Garth Ennis giving a lecture on mitochondria). Somehow, Jay […]

Well That Seems Fair

Posted November 2, 2001 By Dave Thomer

There is a certain sense in which this article is the intellectual equivalent of catching fish in a barrel. When liberals like me agree with conservative think tanks like the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute that people should pay more attention to government assistance to large corporations, my first inclination is to say that’s […]

Stuff Only I Listen To

Posted November 2, 2001 By Earl Green

Ever get the impression that you’re the only person listening to a given band or artist? It happens to me. It’s almost as common as the Mystery Melody Malady that overtakes me at various times of the year, compelling me to find and hear a song I know I’ve heard at some point in the […]
