Comix Talk for Friday, February 18, 2011
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on February 18, 2011 - 10:24
Well I'm writing this post so the first thing I'm mentioning is that I did a "cover" of a panel from the 80s comic book Spiderman Versus Wolverine for the Repaneled blog -- it's up over there today. I think the "cover" concept blogs are all pretty fun; there's a lot of them actually. Repaneled is on the newer side but has a lot of interesting work up already. UPDATE: Speaking of covers, friend-of-ComixTalk-for-life James Duncan has a cover of an Alpha Flight issue up at the Covered blog.
MILESTONES: It's the 7th anniversary of Richard Thompson's Cul De Sac. This comic is so good, it's kind of a shame it wasn't around for the last newspaper golden era of Calvin & Hobbes and The Far Side, it more than holds it own.
AWARDS: The Glyph Award nominees are out and nominated in the Best Comic Strip or Webcomic category are The K Chronicles by Keith Knight; Marty’s Diner by Dmitri Jackson; The Revolutionary Times by Brandon Howard and Sean Mack; Solomon Azua by Jake Ekiss; and World of Hurt by Jay Potts.
INTERVIEW: The Phoenix New Times interviews Matt Inman about his webcomic The Oatmeal. His first book, 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch A Dolphin In the Mouth, is coming out on March 5.
- The Daily Cross Hatch reviews Julia Wertz's Drinking At The Movies, and Comics Worth Reading links to a preview online of the book.
