... the more they stay the same. Bryan Lee O'Malley justly eviscerates Tokyopop's new contracts, while Jack Kirby spins.
My pal Jeff Salamon has started a books blog for the Austin American Statesman. It's mostly local literary news, not necessarily much comics talk, but you simply have to love the graphic sig that he created for the top of it:
I enjoyed this interview with IT Crowd creator Graham Lineham. Especially this incredibly flattering quote:
"The thing I'm happiest about is getting lots of Fantagraphics comics onto the set and also lots of Guided By Voices records."
I had to report to jury duty last week, and in the "jury assembly room" that had a large wall of posters for theater and art shows around town. They also had a sheet where you could sign up to reserve a poster when it came down. Only two posters had been reserved, apparently by a hippie who can't spell (I blocked out the guy's last name and phone number):
I tease; the guy had good taste. All the other posters were lame.
Robin McConnell over at the Inkstuds blog has posted a letter that Dave Sim is sending out to anyone that wishes to correspond with him. He is requesting that if you want to correspond with him, you must agree that he is not a misogynist. This should go well. We're really not making this up:
Heroes & Villians is a photo series by Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho that "features intimate portraits of the most notable emerging and established figures in the Pop Surrealist, Graffiti and Alt-Comic Book worlds."
I would contest their designation of THE most notable but it is cool to see them documenting SOME of the most notable artists working. Pictured above is the enchanting Jordan Crane. Visit Cho's site for a peek at more comics folks like Anders Nilsen, Johnny Ryan, Sammy Harkham, Souther Salazar, Ron Rege, Jr., and Steven Weissman.
UPDATE: I failed to mention that the show is 2 days only, opening this Tuesday at Corey Helford Gallery .
