About This Blog

Comic Riffs ( is devoted to you, the fan of comics, animation, sci-fi film or fanboy culture. Grab a seat and an opinion as we celebrate, contemplate, eviscerate and pontificate on cartoons -- from strips to superheroes, Pixar to political cartoons, Iron Man to Obama. We'll also cover comics culture, conduct reader polls, offer interviews with cartoonists, swap news about the industry and discuss trends and buzz within the field. So make yourself at home and consider this blog just like a Comic-Con Without Borders.

Michael Cavna is a recovering cartoonist and writer/editor in The Washington Post's Style section. His syndicated cartoons have appeared in such newspapers as The Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Dallas Morning News, the Miami Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle, San Diego Union-Tribune and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Everyone from former President Jimmy Carter to Neil Diamond has framed his original artwork -- happy to have the extra income, Cavna places no value judgment on anyone who pays in cash. His favorite compliment came from "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz, who told Cavna at a black-tie awards dinner: "You do funny things"; to this day, he does not know for certain whether Schulz was referring to Cavna's topical comic strip "Warped" or to his tragically askew cummerbund.
