Daily OCD: 12/23/10

Online Commentary & Diversions will return next week. Here's today's:

Lilli Carré

List: Lilli Carré's residency at Spudnik Press was selected one of Chicago's Top 5 Solo Exhibitions by Newcity

Review: "I'm pretty close to having read all of Jason's comics, and each one is so solid and reliable, I'd be perfectly fine with building a house on them — except then it might be hard to read the comics themselves. [...]  I continue to be impressed with Jason's unique and distinctive style, and if anything, he's only gotten better over time. ...[I]t's nice to know that one of my favorite creators is still at the top of his game. Werewolves [of Montpellier] is less a horror story and more a character study, but that's okay by me. Fans of Jason definitely should pick this book up right away, and anyone new to his work will find themselves cursed with a need to read more of his catalog after finishing this one." – Rob McMonigal, Panel Patter

Mome Vol. 16 - Fall 2009

Interview (Audio): It's a typically informative and entertaining chat between Inkstuds host Robin McConnell and Renee French

Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film [Pre-Order]

Plug/Contest: "When I saw Destroy All Movies!!!: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film on the bookshelf in the film section of the bookstore where I work, I was smacked all-over nostalgic. One might argue that books like this — big-format subculture guidebooks — are unnecessary now that we mostly all have internet access. Maybe. I still think everyone who coveted Factsheet 5 zine guides when they were young should feel obligated to get a copy of Destroy All Movies!!! for their lonely, floppy-haired nephew in Chilton, Wisconsin." – Matthew Simmons, HTMLGIANT (click through to find out how to win a copy of the book!)

Usagi Yojimbo: The Special Edition [Pre-Order]

Plug: "Last week Fantagraphics released an incredibly comprehensive Usagi Yojimbo collection to celebrate the long eared ronin’s 25th Anniversary, and The Blot can’t wait to get his hands on a copy!" – The Blot Says...
