Daily OCD: 1/27/10
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Steven WeissmanJim FloraHotwireDennis the Menace 27 Jan 2010 2:26 PM

Online Commentary & Diversions for today:

Plug: Chris Mautner of Robot 6 declares Hotwire Comics Vol. 3 his Pick of the Week: "Here's another hefty sampling of edgy, in-your-face alternative comics, edited by Glenn Head, who provides the cover as well as a couple of interior stories as well. This volume boasts a rather impressive A-list of contributors, including Mary Fleener, Michael Kupperman, R. Sikoryak, Mack White, Johnny Ryan and more. The Sikoryak story in particular — a mash-up between Dennis the Menace and Hamlet — is worth checking out, as is the great, surreal tale from White. If nothing else, I'm grateful to Head for giving folks like White a place to get their comics published, as they're the kind of artists we don't seem to see enough of these days."

Plug: Marc Arsenault at Wow Cool hypes Hotwire Comics Vol. 3

Plug: "The third volume of Fantagraphics’ Harvey and Eisner nominated Hotwire has arrived and it looks great. ... The Complete Dennis the Menace 1961 - 1962 by Hank Ketcham. Read it." – Gosh! Comics Blog

Elsewhere: Irwin Chusid reports the good news that Jim Flora's children's books will start coming back into print with new editions from Brooklyn-based indie press Enchanted Lion Books
