Comix Talk Special Weekend Edition

What I'd miss?  Here's a few things from the last couple weeks and the Comix Talk mailbag worth checking out

MILESTONES

OPINIONS

HYPE

  • Nina Paley has new webcomic, Mimi And Eunice.  Recently Paley is pretty well known for her animated feature film Sita Sings the Blues, but she's also got several earlier comics projects under her belt including Nina's Adventures, Fluff and The Hots.  Cute stuff - worth checking out. Paley is also sticking with a copyleft license for this work - more details on the About page.
  • Nicholas Brendan (who played Xander Harris in Buffy the Vampire Slayer) along with illustrator Rafael Santiago, is launching a webcomic, Very Bad KoalasIt follows the adventures of Avery and Irving, two koalas on the run from the authorities in their 1958 Cadillac El Dorado and "their struggle with addiction." Finally a comic addressing the eucalyptus crisis in the koala community!  Lauren Davis notes that Brendan is the second Buffy alum to write a webcomic; Emma Caulfield, Brendan's on-screen girlfriend, is the wordsmith behind Contropussy.

CRAFT: Comics Worth Reading has a good post on how to break into writing for comics.

INTERVIEW: Battlemouth interviewed Max Huffman of Mocktopus.

MAILBAG
