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!
Blogosphere roundup for 5/30/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviewsKim Deitch 30 May 2008 1:27 PM

Reviews and commentary found 'round the Web this week:

ComicMix on the latest volume of The Complete Peanuts

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."

Newsarama on The Last Musketeer by Jason

Comics Worth Reading's Johanna Draper Carlson explains why she named Linda Medley's Castle Waiting one of the "Best of 2006"

Sequart on Willie & Joe: The WWII Years by Bill Mauldin

Sequart again on Ellen Forney's Lust

Sexuality in the Arts and Noah Berlatsky each comment on the Schulz feature in The Comics Journal #290 (the former via Uncivilsociety.org)

• Dick Hyacinth places Jessica Farm Vol. 1 by Josh Simmons and Ganges #2 by Kevin Huizenga on his "Halfway point (more or less) best of 2008" list

The Star Clipper Blog on R. Kikuo Johnson's Night Fisher

Bonus! Here are some non-review links:

My Year Online reports on Martin Kellerman's appearance at the Oslo Comics Expo

This Sunday: Bob Levin at Comic Relief
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under eventsBob Levin 30 May 2008 8:40 AM

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.
