Things I Learned from Tom Spurgeon This Week
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Tony MillionaireRobert CrumbRick AltergottJim BlanchardHumbugHarvey KurtzmanDennis the MenaceDash ShawBob Levin 23 Oct 2008 9:45 AM

• Dash Shaw and Tony Millionaire are amongst the the official selections from which the the Festival International de la BD Angouleme main prizes will be drawn from at January's festival. That is very cool.

• Joey Anuff has justified the Internet's existence.

• Charles Crumb, who passed away 14 years ago, is gone but not forgotten

• Rudy Ray Moore is not so far removed from the realm of this blog that it would be inappropriate to lament his passing here. R.I.P., R.R.M. A tip of the fur bucket to Rick Altergott and Jim Blanchard, who first introduced me to Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-In-Law.

• Dennis the Menace cartoonist Marcus Hamilton is a thankful man

• Bob Levin's blog is always worth reading.

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.
