Some comics-related stories for your perusal this morning:
INTERVIEW: TalkProgress has a great interview with Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots.
ALL AGES: Ryan Estrada finished and posted his all ages webcomic Aki Alliance. Estrada's sense of humor works really well on an all ages title and this is a fun read.
CONVENTIONAL THINKING: ComicsDC blog posted that DC-area convention SPX announced that the Pizza Island collective would all be guests at this year's edition:Kate Beaton, Sarah Glidden, Lisa Hanawalt, Domitille Collardey, Julia Wertz and Meredith Gran.
HYPE: I really liked Jason Turner's True Love and True Loves 2. He's serializing True Loves 3 online so be sure to check it out (if you're not already reading).
KICKSTART MY ART: Diana Nock has launched a kickstarter project to fund a print version of her webcomic, The Intrepid Girlbot. Winner of the Friends of Lulu "Leah Adezio Award for Best Kid-Friendly Work" of 2010, Girlbot is the all ages story of a little-girl-shaped robot trying to find her place in a strange world of robots and woodland creatures.
FROM THE MAILBAG: Johnny Tay, a creator from Singapore, wrote in about his digital comic, Seven Years in Dog-Land, for sale on Graphicly. The black and white graphic novel follows the adventures of a little girl in an alternate world where dogs are the masters, and humans, their pets. Through her trials and adventures, Dog-Land explores humans’ relationship with nature and the human condition itself.
