• Reviews: MEGATONik calls Boody. The Bizarre Comics of Boody Rogers "absolutely insane... I would definitely make a case for reading this book no matter what sort of comics you like... These shorts are always funny, and not in an ironic or 'so bad it’s good' way"; and of Supermen! The First Wave of Comic Book Heroes 1936-1941 they say "...the artists here are all early comic pioneers, flexing their muscles, pencilling straight from their crazy guts in a medium with no borders... his is how reprints should be done"

• Things to see: In celebration of Daniel Clowes's birthday yesterday, Entrecomics presents some pages from Ghost World: Special Edition
