One of my favorite internet-y t-shirts is still David Malki!'s "The Revolution Will Not Be Telegraphed" - for some reason my brain was stuck on variations of that all weekend.. "The Revolution Will Not Be Conveyed Via the Blades of the Semaphore Line!" "The Revolution Will Not Be Transmitted Directly Into My Brain Via iBrain" Well you take it from there...
Also heads up - talented comics creator Gene Yang has a new website and blog.
- Tom Spurgeon has a great interview with Jamie Hernandez. Coincidentally, I've been reading the big Locas I and II collections of his Love & Rockets work.
- More of The Daily Cross Hatch's interview with Tom Hart - part one and part two.
- Change is good and Danielle Corsetto looks to be mixing things up again for the cast of Girls With Slingshots this year. Today's is pretty funny.
- I demand George Lucas hire Kevin Smith to adapt Nate Beaty's Life As A Wookie as the next Star Wars movie...
- A series of sketches from John Allison - I actually like his looser, more dashed off work quite a bit although it only emerges in tiny bits in his finished comics.

Nate Beaty has been making comics for about a decade (at least) and collected 8 years of journal webcomics into Brainfag Forever (or BFF as it appears on the cover). It's very self-revealing with a great deal of painful honesty in it. Artistically it's all over the place and in that sense it's an overview of Beaty's life as a comic artist as much as the comic itself is an overview of his life in general. It's no wonder this book collected a number of strong reviews last year.
