Attention RSS subscribers
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under meta 11 Aug 2008 10:41 AM

If you subscribe to the FLOG RSS feed using Google Reader (or perhaps other readers as well), you've noticed that you're receiving every FLOG post twice. We're aware of this problem and it's been on our list of things to fix for a while, but other technical projects have been taking priority. We'll hopefully be able to get it fixed soon. (The cause of the problem: the posts are coming from both our non-secure "http" server and our secure "https" server.) We apologize for the annoyance!

Confidential to the tipster who contacted us about this recently: we tried to write to you directly, but could not get through to your sbcglobal.net address (see here for more about that).

Blogosphere roundup for 8/8/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviews 8 Aug 2008 5:26 PM

Happy triple-8 day. Let's head into the weekend with a whole mess of review links:

• This week's barrel of reviews and articles related to Strange & Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko by Blake Bell include entries from the Barnes & Noble Review (see the second-from-right column), Minneapolis City Pages, this Italian site (Nova100?), the Montreal Mirror, Johnny Bacardi, and Comic Book Bin (which gives it an A+). Also, Comic Book Resources recaps "The World of Steve Ditko" panel (featuring Blake Bell, Kim Deitch and Gary Groth among others) held at Comic-Con last month.

SF Weekly calls Tim Lane's Abandoned Cars a "Graphic Novel To Look Out For," and Print calls it "the real comic book event of the summer"

Toque de Queda reviews Thomas Ott's The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8 (en Español)

Sean T. Collins gets in the first word on Love and Rockets: New Stories #1

• Sean furthermore provides the Review Quote of the Month with this, from his take on Tales Designed to Thrizzle #4 by Michael Kupperman: "If God didn't hate us all, we'd live in a world where there'd be some way for Michael Kupperman, Johnny Ryan, and Matt Furie to do a world tour in every way the humor comics equivalent of that Guns n' Roses/Metallica/Faith No More tour my parents wouldn't let me go to back in '91--selling out stadiums, inspiring bootleg T-shirts sold in parking lots filled with drunk drivers, and causing riots when Ryan gets in a fistfight with Stephanie Seymour and blows off a show in Toronto out of frustration. But here we are, and the best we can do is get a new issue of Tales Designed to Thrizzle and laugh ourselves stupid."

The Comics Reporter also takes on Tales Designed to Thrizzle #4

Book By Its Cover looks at the brand new Mome Vol. 12, as does the amazingly-named Portugese-language blog Fucking With Jazz Metal (which also has an excellent header graphic)

Cartoon Brew takes a peek at the upcoming 292nd issue of The Comics Journal

Comic Book Bin on Meanwhile... A Biography of Milton Caniff by R.C. Harvey

...and some other items of note:

• Via Gary Groth: This analysis of There Will Be Blood quotes Gil Kane from the conversation he had with Robert Crumb in the late '80s that Gary moderated (as heard on The Comics Journal Library Interview CD Sampler)

• Speaking of Gary, Idolator mentions a little tidbit about his pre-Fantagraphics publishing career

• The Seattle Post-Intelligencer talks to Zak Sally and Nate Denver about their appearance at our store last weekend

• My Fantagraphics colleagues and myself recommend graphic novels for teen boys at Guys Lit Wire

Editor & Publisher blurbs our next volume of The Complete Peanuts (due later this month)

• The Albany Times Union notes the 40th anniversary of the introduction of Franklin to the Peanuts gang

DMFDP spazzes out over our upcoming Daniel Clowes exhibit

• Rediscovered: a video made by Brian Biggs in 2002 for his book Frederick & Eloise (via Letters from the Inquisition)

Bottomless Belly Button by Dash Shaw: on Hollywood's nightstand!

At Blog Flume, Jonathan Bennett reports coming across a sidewalk art vendor in New York whose wares included direct copies of Ivan Brunetti Schizo panels

Kaz was captured on film in the front row of a 1977 Ramones gig at CBGB, thereby proving conclusively that he is cooler than any of us, according to this scoop on The Comics Reporter

Sneak peek video & photos: Deitch's Pictorama
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsnew releasesKim Deitch 8 Aug 2008 3:49 PM

Here's the next entry in our current batch of daily video and photo teasers of upcoming releases: Deitch's Pictorama, a unique and exciting book of "picto-fiction" by brothers Simon, Seth and Kim Deitch. Watch the video above, and take a closer look in our photo gallery. (Note that these images are of my own personal copy, so you'll see a signature and inscription on the Table of Contents page that aren't part of the printed book.)

Willie Nelson & the Moriaritys
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Pat Moriarity 8 Aug 2008 9:59 AM
This is the neatest story of the day. Jack Moriarity is the 8-year-old son of cartoonist Pat Moriarity, and Jack is something of a rock prodigy. He made his live debut this summer at a 4th of July BBQ and Pat threw a couple of the vids up on YouTubeOne was a cover of Willie Nelson's "A Peaceful Solution," which charmed the pants off of none other than Willie hisself. Pretty cool.
Woodring-Wide Web
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Jim Woodring 7 Aug 2008 10:26 PM

I stumbled across both these links today, and was going to include them in tomorrow's "Blogosphere roundup," but decided they deserve their own post: Woodring Simulacra is a blog compiling images of real-world "things that look like Jim Woodring made them up," and Jimland Novelties is a Flickr user who is posting images of an incredible collection of Woodring rarities and ephemera, with Jim's permission.
