Comix Talk for Wednesday, September 28, 2011

iWEBCOMIC: Sometime today Amazon is going to introduce a new color Kindle.  While earlier rumors speculated that it would be an ipad competitor, it now sounds like it'll be much closer to existing Kindle functionality.  I'm very curious as to how well it will support web/comics.

52 CARD PICKUP: I haven't paid a ton of attention to the DC reboot beyond some of the digital stuff because I don't buy monthlies (at least not on any regular basis).  But it is interesting to see that they've hired Nielsen to survey their readership.

Also, go buy Kate Beaton's book Hark! A Vagrant.  She cleverly skewers history, the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew equally well — if you're the last person to discover her comics please check them out.

HYPETY HYPE: Justin Hall is drawing webcomics about webcomics for Slacktory —  How Artists Draw Themselves is kind of funny.  I also saw another funny comic there called Grandpa's Guide to the Computer with art by Monica Ekabutr who has an awesome tumblr blog (see above for one of my favorites).
