Did I mention SPX is this weekend? Other stories of note:
Newsarama has a story on the webcomic Wide Awake and that Jarrod Feliciano and Mirjana Novkovic at Do-Over Productions recently optioned the film rights to it. Do-Over Productions on its facebook page describes itself as "Do-Over Productions is a New York based independent production company. We love stories. Especially epic stories - not in their presentation, but in their content - epic in what they make you think and feel."

Hey it's the coolest little comics show that could, the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD. It's this Saturday and Sunday and thanks to the very gracious and cool Mrs. X, I am shirking husband and fatherhood to check out the show on Saturday afternoon. There is an insane number of AMAZING comics-making folks at the show and a good set of speakers and panels.
I'm going to check out the "Comic Strips: Online and In Print" panel with Kate Beaton, Erika Moen, R. Stevens, and Julia Wertz and the "Critics’ Roundtable" with Rob Clough, Sean T. Collins, Gary Groth, Chris Mautner, Joe McCulloch, Tucker Stone, Douglas Wolk and Bill Kartalopoulos.
