Comix Talk for Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Short week but not necessarily short on comics.  Here's a few interesting stories to catch up on between catching on webcomics:

CAN YOU DIG IT: Once upon a time, Matt Madden slipped a slim jim into a comic.

SUPER ART FIGHTOn June 18, 2011, Super Art Fight returns to The Red Palace in Washington DC for a full card of bouts including marker-pugilists Super Art Fight Champion Michael “Spaghetti Kiss” Bracco, Chris “Impact” Impink, Nick “Ghostfreehood” Borkowicz, Jami “Angry Zen Master” Noguchi, Kelsey “Killer” Wailes and the undefeated Brandon J. Carr!

ON THE ROAD AGAIN: Author John Scalzi has a great post up on the pros and cons of the book tour.

MILESTONE: 12 years of Cat and Girl.  That's like a 100 years for a dog; 1000 for a webcomic.

INTERVIEW: An interview with Ivan Brunetti on his new book Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice —  a 15-week master course built on his practical experience teaching at the University of Chicago and Columbia College Chicago.

COMICS!: The Rumpus has built up a pretty strong webcomics section with an alt/indie vibe.

NOT COMICS: Hey you got your Portal 2 in my Project Wonderful! No you got your Project Wonderful in my Portal 2!
