• Awards: Entrecomics reports that La educación de Hopey Glass (the Spanish edition of The Education of Hopey Glass) by Jaime Hernandez is nominated for "Mejor obra extranjera publicada en España en el 2008" ("Best foreign work published in Spain in 2008") at Saló del Còmic de Barcelona, Spain's largest comics convention (yes, we have a handful of copies of the Spanish edition for sale)

• Review of the Week: Pads & Panels on Johnny Ryan's XXX Scumbag Party: "It is truly unfortunate someone saw fit to publish this abomination."

• Review: Art Blog by Bob on The Wolverton Bible by Basil Wolverton: "As much as the horrific and Bosch-esque in Wolverton’s art strikes you immediately, it’s also important to recognize the beauty of many of his visions... The Wolverton Bible still has the ability to revolt and repulse viewers, but that is just one aspect of its overall ability to make these well-known stories seem new and, more importantly, inescapably human."

• Review: Blog @ Newsarama says "A few words about every single story in Supermen!" (spoiler alert!), praising editor Greg Sadowski and concluding "I honestly can’t recommend [the book] enough to any fans of the superhero genre."

• Preview: Our pals at Diamond Comic Distributors present some excerpt pages from Supermen! The First Wave of Comic Book Heroes 1936-1941 on two of their websites: Previews and ComicShopLocator.com (it's the same in both places, so take your pick)

• Interview: Inkstuds can't wait until Paul Hornschemeier arrives in the program's hometown of Vancouver tomorrow to talk with him about Mother, Come Home and other topics (in streaming and downloadable audio)

• Profile: The Vancouver Courier spotlights Paul Hornschemeier in advance of his appearance at Lucky's Comics tomorrow

• Oddity: Ellen Forney is no fool
