• The Daily Cross Hatch posts the third and final part of their interview with Dash Shaw
• 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.
• 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.
• Bob Levin's blog is always worth reading.
This Thursday night at MIT, comics critic (and Krazy & Ignatz contributing editor) Jeet Heer will moderate a talk about "Comics & Social Conflict" between King creator Ho Che Anderson and Diana Tamblyn.
Finally, here's a bunch of beautiful recent illustrations by Jeremy Eaton, including one particularly near and dear to my heart. Jeremy also tells the story of a rather pathetic 24 hour comics session that I was privileged enough to participate in.
The Daily Crosshatch runs part one this morning of a Dash Shaw interview conducted at SPX last weekend. Speaking of which, I should have some kind of SPX report up next week, long after anyone cares. Oh, boy!

Flog!'s North Carolina Bureau Chief Rob Clough attended the opening of the Dash Shaw show at Duke this past Friday night and was kind enough to provide us with this exclusive report:
Dash Shaw's show BOTTOMLESS at the John Hope Franklin Center at Duke University debuted on Thursday, September 25th. The well-attended opening was a multi-media affair that was as much about process as it was about a final product. The way that curator Diego Cortez designed the show gave a unique glimpse into Shaw's method. By juxtaposing Shaw's original pencils against his color sheets on the walls of the exhibit, the viewer could see the way Shaw composes color for his pages is unusual. On display were pencils and color pages from his webcomic BodyWorld and MOME short stories "Train" and the upcoming "Satellite CMYK". That latter story may well be his best effort yet.
There were also some other unusual entries, like a drawing Shaw made of himself and Barack Obama as surfers.
Bottomless, an exhibition of original drawings, storyboards, color background overlays and a video animation by Dash Shaw will be on display at the John Hope Franklin Center, 2204 Erwin Road from Thursday, September 25 through October 31. The exhibition is curated by Diego Cortez.
The opening is September 25, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. At noon on Friday, September 26 in Franklin Center 240, Shaw will be joined by noted graphic artist Gary Panter, "Jimbo In Purgatory" cartoonist, and Shaw's former teacher at the School of the Visual Arts, who will discuss his work.
