The ongoing Yoda theme sketchbook rolled over into a second volume at Comic-Con. I continue to be flabbergasted by the amazing generosity and talent of all the contributing artists. Below, from the Fantagraphics family: Mary Woodring, Jordan Crane (2nd contribution), Jon Vermilyea, Mario Hernandez, Tim Hensley, John Pham, Jim Woodring and Zak Sally. Click the thumbnails for better views with commentary and more info on Flickr:
Also, I'm pleased to welcome our Top Shelf compatriot Leigh Walton to the theme sketchbook brotherhood with his brand-new Tintin characters book. I look forward to following its progress.
In an effort to bring Love and Rockets fans together (and, of course, to turn up the burner on the simmering saucepan o'hype for Love and Rockets: New Stories #1), we've created two new social networking destinations:
• The Love and Rockets - The Hernandez Brothers Flickr Group - where Flickr members can share their L&R-related photos and scans and participate in message board discussions, and non-members can browse and enjoy all the images
• The Love and Rockets - The Hernandez Brothers Facebook Page - where Facebook users can declare themselves Fans, upload fan photos and videos, leave messages, receive special updates, etc.
Our latest batch of daily video and photo teasers of upcoming releases wraps up with a bang today, with the Hernandez Brothers' all-new extravaganza Love and Rockets: New Stories #1, 100 pages of brand new stuff from brothers Gilbert, Jaime and Mario Hernandez. Watch the video above (or click here if it doesn't show up), and take a closer look in our photo gallery.
The Daily Crosshatch has a great recap of Friday night's Rory Hayes book release party, including YouTube videos of Geoffrey Hayes and Bill Griffith discussing Rory's legacy.

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).
