The A.V. Club recently published an article titled "The Best Comics of 2016 So Far," and it's a handy guide to some of the year's finest work, from graphic novels to web comics. Included on the list is former Athenian Lee Gatlin, a frequent Flagpole illustrator whose excellent Gang Agley series appears in our weekly print edition and online.
Renowned illustrator Jack Davis, a UGA graduate best known as a founder of the satirical Madmagazine, has died at age 91.
Born in 1924 in Atlanta, Davis attended UGA on the G.I. Bill and loved to draw Bulldog-related images throughout his career.

What transpired Saturday night at Akins Arena inside the Classic Center was, without hyperbole, the most thrilling display of grit and athleticism in the decade-long history of women’s flat track roller derby in Athens. The largest regular-season crowd in recent memory held its collective breath for two 30-minute halves as the visiting team from Tallahassee and our hometown Classic City Rollergirls battled with every ounce of their being in a slugfest for the ages.

New UGA football coach Kirby Smart knows he needs to win and win in a hurry to keep the fan base happy.
Unfortunately for him (and us), the media doesn’t have a whole lot of faith.
At the SEC Media Days conference in Hoover last week, sportswriters picked Georgia to finish third in the East, behind predicted division winner Tennessee and Florida.

Over the past week, swarms of people have taken to the streets with smartphones in hand, walking (or running) around and loitering in certain (often unusual) locations. Although walking while looking down at one’s phones is already a common activity, this is something different entirely. This is Pokémon Go, a new, location-based augmented reality mobile app developed by Niantic—the minds behind another location-based game called Ingress—and the Pokémon Company.

Day One: Saturday, June 18
When Albuquerque, NM-based Duke City took the track against Marietta's Peach State at 10 a.m. Saturday to kick off the 2016 Classic City Crush, they were confident the most stressful and frightening events of the weekend were already behind them. Their flight to Georgia was rerouted to Chattanooga due to severe weather. They taxied the runway in Tennessee until conditions improved in Atlanta, where they eventually commandeered ground transportation for Athens. Arriving eight hours late, they did not benefit from a good night’s sleep, nor did they have time for sightseeing. (The Tree That Owns Itself will be there until we replace it again.)

Hairspray: A celebration of early ’60s dance music, social change and teen dreams, Hairsprayis a happy, Tony Award-winning musical about an outrageously optimistic dance show fanatic named Tracy Turnblad (Georgia Laster). She’s described as “pleasantly plump” and gets in trouble at school for “inappropriate hair height,” but she dreams of appearing on “The Corny Collins Show.”
