Blogosphere roundup for 6/27/08
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under reviews 27 Jun 2008 1:38 PM

Our ego-surfing results for the week:

Independent Weekly profiles Robert Pollard, visual artist, as collected in Town of Mirrors (link via Largehearted Boy)

• Speaking of Largehearted Boy, Dash Shaw's Bottomless Belly Button is included in LHB's "Summer Reading Suggestions." More BBB coverage includes a profile of Dash in Canada's National Post, a starred review from Publishers Weekly (scroll to the bottom), a review by The Daily Cross Hatch, the previously-linked mention in the Wall Street Journal, another profile (alongside Jason Lutes and Guy Delisle) in the Christian Science Monitor, and Kevin Church calling the book "easily the best graphic novel of the year so far." Whew!

• Via The Comics Reporter, a passel of links to Daada Books' reviews of Acme Novelty Library #16 by Chris Ware; Mome; Monologues for the Coming Plague by Anders Nilsen; and Outlaws, Rebels, Freethinkers & Pirates by Bob Levin

• Speaking of Levin, Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter says Levin's Most Outrageous is "Maybe The Best Book About Comics Ever." Meanwhile, Levin announces that Most Outrageous is banned in California state prisons (via Journalista)

• More French love for Linda Medley, as the French edition of Castle Waiting is named one of "20 Essential Albums for Summer 2008" by l’Association des Critiques de Bandes Dessinées (Google translation)

Publishers Weekly gives an industry-focused take on the forthcoming Love and Rockets: New Stories

• Speaking of L&R, here's PrettyFakes on The Education of Hopey Glass by Jaime Hernandez

Icats Nitram, on a roll lately, looks at Richard Sala's Delphine #1

Comic Book Galaxy's Alan David Doane says Patrick Rosenkranz's Rebel Visions is "one of the greatest historical recountings ever dedicated to the artform"

Sean T. Collins presents his 2005 Comics Journal review of Marc Bell's (unfortunately out-of-print) Worn Tuff Elbow

Our hometown alt-weekly, the coincidentally-named Stranger, looks at Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko by Blake Bell

Shuffleboil on the most recent volume of The Complete Peanuts

• Not to be outdone by the WSJ in comics coverage, The Fort Worth Business Press looks at two recent Popeye collections: ours, of E.C. Segar's original comic strips, and Warner's DVD collections of the Fleischer cartoons
