Comics of the Weak is up at The Comics Journal. Nate and me, doing the deal. America!
There was another movie podcast, it was about George Lucas and bad documentaries.
The first of a few no-Tucker comics podcast came down the pipeline, and Chris, Matt and Joe did such a great job that some actual pangs of fear and sadness were felt in their one non-attending member.
Around the world:
Okay, so Eddie Campbell wrote this thing about EC Comics and the way people respond to them, and then Ng Suat Tong wrote a response to it over at the Hooded Utilitarian, and I read both of them more than once. I have to say, one thing that comes out of reading old Journal's is a desire to read old comics--I'm looking forward to trying Captain Easy out again after reading Chaykin and Gil Kane write about it--whereas both of these articles make it seem less and less likely that I'll pick up Kurtzman's war comics again anytime soon. That's just me though, and we already know i've got problems.
My sister and brother-in-law got a little plug in this article about microloans for farming, but my favorite part by far is the picture of Brent posing against a tractor in a fashion that I can only imagine required him to be threatened with a gun to get into.
I was introduced to this Killer Mike video long after I fell for the album, I imagine I am alone in that, but in case I'm wrong: this. So over the top for no reason whatsoever. If only T.I. could be this great all of the time.
I feel like a big enough deal wasn't made for the completion of Douglas Wolk's Judge Dredd blog, but that could just be because I automatically assume no one cares despite the fact that I'm terrible at keeping up with the places where people would actually care. In other words, I've regressed to the mental age of 3, and I think the world ceases to exist when I'm not there to look at it. An amazing accomplishment, an invaluable resource, and for my money, the absolute best writing Wolk has ever done.
Nina gave me this thing for Christmas. It's the best thing in the world.
If you're near Brooklyn this Saturday, February 16th, swing by and meet Yuko Ota and Ananth Panagariya at the Johnny Wander release party.
Okay, go away now. This post is over.
