SMITH magazine has launched its newest online comics strip, and its The Pekar Project by guess who!
Pekar Project seeds were planted when Pekar discovered artist Tara Seibel, a fellow Clevelander. They began collaborating on stories for her blog, Rock City Comix. For The Pekar Project, Pekar has formed a band including editor Jeff Newelt and four artists: Seibel, Joseph Remnant, Rick Parker, and Sean Pryor. Just as Duke Ellington composed pieces with a particular featured soloist in mind, Pekar is tailoring each true-life tale to these artists’ individual strengths. Also, as the project progresses, guest artists will be called in to draw stories on a one-shot basis.
We’re fans of all involved, so this should be worth watching.
