The Week in Me
Well, more like "The Months in Me".
Some updates and links:
-Reviews: two new comics reviews I did for Sequential. The bizarrely cute Catland Empire by Keith Jones and the slightly underwhelming and boring woodcut novel about September 10, 2010 Book of Hours by Bryan A. Walker.
-I wrote a short history of The Comics Journal on the occasion of its new online incarnation edited by Tim Hodler and Dan Nadel.
-the best piece in the new Journal is this review of Johny Ryan's New Character Parade by Sean Rogers (it's good 'cause it has swears)
-I also liked the Great Dilbert Debate (criticism of the year so far)
-are there only 100,000 people who buy comics in comic shops on a weekly basis?
-I also liked this podcast featuring Frank Santoro. They talk about the end of the graphic novel boom and mega-advances for comics from big publishers.
