One of my Take-Out stories that has never been on the web is featured in a brand-new series on The Daily Crosshatch, about Subway Stories.
Those of you who have TO#4 will remember this one; for the rest of you, go read a comic I drew in 2002!

Some quick updates for today -- probably no more posts from me until next week though (check out the talk posts for more from the ComixTalk community). Here's an idea that caught my eye this AM -- a graphic novel reading group. Sponsored by the DC area bookstore Politics and Prose it will meet the fourth Wednesday of each month. There are a lot of book reading clubs -- how many include, let alone focus on graphic novels? Do any publishers include book club guides for their graphic novels? (I've seen similar stuff for books).
Another article on Longbox - the announced "itunes for comics" service/software. Not a bad overview of the possibilities here, although a key difference between music and comics is that it seems iTunes rode the success of the iPod. I can't imagine iTunes becoming as dominant as it is without the tight linkage Apple created to the iPod. Longbox isn't going to have that advantage. On the other hand if Longbox can do deal with many, many major publishers of comics than it still might have a fighting chance (assuming it's a great piece of software with a really good customer experience).

Justify My Hype
Daily Cross Hatch has a great comic from Raina Telgemeier -- the first in a series called Subway Stories.

Last week, the Massachusetts Library Association held its annual professional conference, which is notable for comics fans in that the final day of the conference included a Graphic Novel Mini-Conference organized by Robin Brenner of No Flying, No Tights. This included a full day of panel discussions related to the comic book industry, as well as a handful of graphic novel exhibitors in the exhibition hall, and a couple of interesting events throughout the rest of the week. I wasn’t able to make it to all of the events, as I wasn’t a registered attendee.
