Penelope!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 12 Jan 2009 7:26 AM
You should all head over to Rob Clough's HIGH-LOW site right now, read his Top 50 for 2008, and then thank him for getting it done when he did, because late last week he and his wife welcomed baby daughter Penelope into the world, and I guarantee you that if he hadn't finished that Top 50 before she was born, you would never have gotten the chance to read it. Which is my way of saying congratulations to Rob and Laura, who are about as kind as anyone you'll meet and will no doubt make fantastic parents.

Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes by Anders Nilsen

Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes
By Anders Nilsen

Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes takes up where the artist’s first volume, Monologues for the Coming Plague, left off. Like Coming Plague, Density of Black Holes is a creatively experimental laboratory, comprising a collection of free flowing stream-of-consciousness gags, strips, and drawings that slowly coalesce into an unexpectedly compelling and complex narrative. The hints of story that came together in Coming Plague are extrapolated and expanded upon and grow to incorporate some of Nilsen's other outré strips from the anthology MOME, two of which are reprinted here in expanded form. The book is an audacious investigation into the rhythms of storytelling, the blurring of media, and an exercise in reconciling contrasts. It is playful, provocative and serious all at once — another tour de force by Anders Nilsen, impeccably and uniquely designed, in monochrome and full color.

The Usual Gang of Idiots
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 8 Jan 2009 8:56 PM

  I read that one of the crucial plot points of Marvel's big Secret Invasion crossover involved newly-elected President Obama bouncing Tony 'Iron Man' Stark from leading the Avengers and replacing him with mass-murdering psychopath Norman 'The Green Goblin' Osborn, creating some king of supervillain Illuminati and making Marvel the new Jack Chick. Shrewd move. 

And now "Obama" is making another crass Marvel appearance in some kind of Spider-Man variant collectible bullshit issue. I'm loathe to link about it, but this Wonkette quote was too rich to pass up: "Who is that mysterious black person in a business suit who looks absolutely nothing like Barack Obama, your new president? It's COMIC-BOOK Barack Obama, that's who! Jesus fucking christ, could Marvel Comics maybe hire somebody who can maybe draw something vaguely resembling the president-elect, rather than 'random negro dude in a suit who also seems to have neck tumors'?"

I actually thought there was some kind of particular law (for better or worse) against trying to profit commercially off a president's likeness in a way not protected by Fair Use (and I doubt limited-edition variant covers qualify as Fair Use), but I guess I totally made that up.
