Room for Misconceptions

“When we stop looking at things, we make all kinds of crazy generalizations. We refer to things and use words and we don’t know what we’re talking about. Look at the history of other races. We think we can say things when we are not looking carefully enough to see what the right thing really should be. Images are a corrective to the text, and the text is a corrective to the image. When you deal with one alone, there’s room for misconceptions,” he said.

-Ben Katchor, one of our greatest living cartoonists, in an interview with New Jersey Jewish News. It's an interesting quote, wise words! but/and it's a few steps removed from its original context so it may be roomier in here. (But there's room for misconceptions and then there's room to breathe)

Ganges 2


There's some pages from Ganges #2 floating around the web here and here and here. We hope it will convince you to buy our comic book and we hope you will enjoy it. It should be out in mid-April.

NOTE: The panel reproduced here has Glenn saying "I'll probably just vote for Nader." People please take note, the story takes place in 2000, this panel is taken out of context, and should in no way be understood as my supporting Nader's candidacy then or now! Glenn is a fictional character, and like most Americans sometimes votes for the wrong candidates. You can find more insightful commentary on contemporary America in Ganges #2, out in mid-April!!
