In the spirit of "show don't tell" (and making my workday ever more complicated), I've decided to break the "Things to see" category (comprising artwork and other visual goodies from the Fantagraphics roster of artists) from our Daily OCD posts out into their own posts, with images. Links will take you to original sources where full/larger images can be seen. These posts may not be daily depending on what's out there — for now they may be somewhat irregular until I figure out a good rhythm. Enough of my yammerin'...

Daily OCD: 1/26/10
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviewsJohnny RyanHo Che AndersonHans RickheitAnders Nilsen 26 Jan 2010 3:13 PM

Another short Online Commentary & Diversions update:

Feature: Publishers Weekly spotlights King: The Special Edition. Calvin Reid talks to King creator Ho Che Anderson and Fantagraphics publisher Gary Groth about the development of the book

Review: "Whatever the case, [The Squirrel Machine] is a compelling, fascinating journey through an often creepy and always striking world, one that's regularly quite hilarious... What can one make of that sort of thing? You might be able to attempt an interpretation, one that will be just as valid as any, but it's just as legitimate to go along for the ride and see where Rickheit takes you. It won't be where you expect, that's for sure." – Matthew J. Brady

Things to see: "Pecker Eggs" by Johnny Ryan

Things to see: It's been a while since the last time we had new sketchbook pages from Anders Nilsen
