ON THE NIB

NIB

 

Hey, Tom the Dancing Bug ran regularly on Medium.com's comic site, The Nib, for about a year and a half, but I'm told that due to changes at Medium, The Nib will be reinventing itself, and will not carry comics on regular basis anymore.

 

I've been tremendously impressed with Nib founder/owner Matt Bors and the way he built the site up.  I'd known him as a young, very talented editorial cartoonist, and a friend, but once he grabbed the reins of The Nib he proved himself to be an endlessly energetic, brilliantly innovative editor and comics impresario.  He developed a large, flexible roster of cartoonists and ran fascinating journalism comics, hilarious and fresh humor comics, heart-wrenching autobiographical comics, and on a moment's notice he would figure out a way to round up local cartoonists to comment on international stories.  He also did all this with great organization, professionalism, integrity and respect for the artists he gathered.

 

My comic played a small part in Matt's grand webcomics project, but I was proud to be associated with it.

 

The Nib is not going away, and I'll be watching (and maybe even participating in small ways) how Matt reinvents it, quite possibly in ways that even better lend themselves to his unique editorial talents and vision.

 

Thanks again to Matt for including me.
