We're in the process of making a few enhancements to the website here, one of which was launched today: now you can select to search our products by title only, or by full description, by checking the buttons that say "Titles" or "All" respectively on our Product Search bar to the left. (Before, you had to go to our Advanced Search page to narrow your search like this.) We hope this makes finding what you're looking for just a bit quicker and easier!
Reviews and commentary found 'round the Web this week:
• Occasional Superheroine and The Comics Reporter on Dash Shaw's Bottomless Belly Button — the latter's Tom Spurgeon enthuses "Bottomless Belly Button reaches so high and executes so much of what it does so well that it shames you into reconsidering every other book you may have praised recently."
Bonus! Here are some non-review links:
From Irwin Chusid:
Jim Flora Art LLC continues its limited edition fine art print series with an uncirculated black & white pen and ink drawing from the mid-1990s entitled Sunday Morning. This is the latest-life work by the artist we have offered in a numbered edition. Two prints are now listed on eBay at a launch price [now sold out]. Price will increase for subsequent prints in the edition. Our previous limited edition prints are available at JimFlora.com.

If you're in Northern California this weekend, don't miss this, it's an amazing book (and if you don't believe me, believe The Comics Reporter, who says "Levin has written what may be the first completely unforgettable book about a modern cartoonist") and Bob Levin is an excellent speaker/reader. Do it for us, do it for Bob, and do it for the great Rory Root, who had been a longtime booster of Bob's work and whom I know was very much looking forward to this event.
It won't be the same without you, Rory.
