I read a preview copy of a new all ages graphic novel called Sidekicks by Dan Santat — it's a really fun book with good characters and stellar art. I'll have a review up sometime (relatively) soon but this is a great book for kids to pick up when it comes out in July.
REVIEW: El Santo reviews The Gutters –written by Ryan Sohmer and illustrated by a series of guest artists, including long-time collaborator Lar deSouza:
The Gutters is a comic industry parody and editorial. Sometimes they’re spoofs about recent comic book plotlines, like the one where Superman renounced his American citizenship or when Wonder Woman donned her new pants-enabled outfit. Sometimes it can get very insider, like the digs at Dan Didio and Joe Quesada. It is a webcomic designed to be consumed by the most obsessive nerds on earth.
DEAD FILES TELL NO TALES: Dave Wright writes up the tale of the amazing success in pre-orders for the apparently widely pirated, illustrated parody children's book, Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach.
BE OUR GUEST: John Allison kicks off a guest week of strips for his webcomic Bad Machinery with one from Marc Ellerby, who does Ellerbisms.
MY HYPE: Perhaps the greatest Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic of all time. It's only missing charts!
