Happy binary day? 10/11/11 comes only once... a century? Next month - 11/11/11!
If you've been online at all since the passing of Steve Jobs you've seen all kinds of tributes and stories, including comics, about it. I really liked Scott Kurtz's comic touching on it, if only because for the character of Brent, Apple is such a huge touchstone for him and it would be weird not to see that character react to this real life event.
Also, I09 reports that MTV is releasing all of its Liquid Television series of animated shorts to the web. These were crazy, innovative stuff that it will be good to see again (and maybe find a new audience online).
INTERVIEWS: The Daily Cross Hatch posts the first part of an interview with Dave Roman creator of Astronaut Academy and co-creator of Teen Boat and the Comic Alliance podcast interviews Erika Moen and Jeff Parker about their webcomic Bucko.
REVIEW: Comics Worth Reading reviews the second print collection of Galaxion, Tara Tallon's science fiction webcomic.
FLEEN FLAGS FOLKS: Fleen lists creators exhibiting at the New York Comic Con coming this week, including Chris Hastings, Brad Guigar (Evil, Inc); Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal); Ramon Perez (Kukuburi); Evan Dahm; and a whole bunch more. Also, Peter Donahue (Pear Pear) blogged he'll be at the convention this year. And The Beat has maps and other graphical information tidbits.
