Herriman Bio Coming, Plus New Website

Herriman Screen

Jeet Heer notes the launch of a new website devoted to the work of George Herriman. The site, produced by Craig Yoe, so far includes several comic strips and examples of rare art, and promises “lots more” in the future.

The site’s news section carries notice that author and journalist Craig Tisserand is working on “a biography of George Herriman, which is contracted with HarperCollins.” In Tisserand’s words, “the book begins with the extended Herriman clan in New Orleans and then follows George Herriman’s immediate family to California, and continues on with George Herriman’s amazing life and career, as well as examines his great contribution to comics, art, literature and the world.” Tisserand solicits “advice, suggestions, counsel or conversation on this audacious project.” His previous books include Sugarcane Academy and The Kingdom of Zydeco.
