About CulturePOP Photocomix

SETH KUSHNER loves comix, taking photos, and interviewing “characters.” CulturePOP, his ongoing series of Photocomix Profiles, fuses three passions into a dynamic new brew. Beta’d on ACTIVATEcomix, and now featured on TRIP CITY, CulturePOP’s newest episode profiles author / creator of HBO’s Bored To Death, JONATHAN AMES. Upcoming subjects include MOBY, comedian MARK MARON (WTF Podcast), and Marilyn Monroe friend/biographer JAMES HASPIEL.

“Seth Kushner’s omniscient lens distills NYC’s brave and bold into graphic time capsules,” says Emmy Award winning artist, Dean Haspiel [creator of Billy Dogma].
