We interrupt this Flog!...
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 25 Aug 2008 10:19 AM
If anyone has tried to email me directly in the last week or two and not received a response, there's a good chance I never got the message. I had a major laptop meltdown last week and there was a window of a day or two where I was unable to get my messages and it looks like they've disappeared. If I owe you a reply and haven't given one, please send me an email again before thinking I'm a negligent dick. Thanks! 
Batman named new Nike spokesperson.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 24 Aug 2008 11:11 PM

  

No, not really. But now that I've planted the seed for a great commercial after seeing the above screenshot from the Batman TV show (think about it, Nike, Batman may even be a better role model than most NBA stars and since he isn't real, he'll do what you want), don't forget to send me a check. From Batmania's awesome Los Onomatopeyas.

Jonathan Bennett draws RAW
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Jonathan Bennett 24 Aug 2008 10:32 PM

The Washington Post ran a major feature on graphic novels this morning, but the highlight is this handsome strip created to accompany the piece, by Post writer Bob Thompson and MOME contributor Jonathan Bennett, about Thompson's visit to the studio of Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly.

Now that I've posted all of my sketchbook entries on the Flog, I've archived them all as a set on Flickr. I hope some of you've enjoyed this Flog filler!

Georgetown Radio
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videostaff 22 Aug 2008 4:54 PM

A couple of Friday night videos for your enjoyment, consisting of footage filmed in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood (where our Bookstore & Gallery resides) in the early 1990s, and featuring sound design (and a cameo) by our own Nico Vassilakis. These are very cool. (If they don't display below, click for Part 1 and Part 2.)

Chocolate Cheeks for 8/15 & 8/22/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under webcomicsSteven Weissmanmeta 22 Aug 2008 2:05 PM

Chocolate Cheeks by Steven Weissman

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Has it really been 3 weeks since we brought you the last installment of Steven Weissman's in-progress pages from "Blue Jay," an epic 32-page story from Chocolate Cheeks, the next collection of the Yikes! gang's adventures? Indeed it has. For the record: Steven skipped 8/8, and then I missed putting up last week's installment due to various meshugaas. To make up for it, this week we're giving you a double dose! WARNING: Possibly upsetting for the very sensitive (you know who you are)! (Remember, you must be registered and logged in to read.)

Blogosphere roundup for 8/22/08

Wired looks at Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko by Blake Bell

Jarett Kobek's examination of Strange and Stranger includes this intriguing quote: "My guess would be that if Ditko's creator-owned work were being judged independent of What Came Before, it wouldn't be spoken of as a Decline, but rather in the same way that we have begun to discuss an outsider artist like Rory Hayes. (Note: not likening Ditko's work to that of Hayes.)"

And...
