So I had a tremendously wonderful thing happen last week, and celebrations had to occur. Here's what I did:
1) Went out for sushi, got the tempura. I love the tempura. There's something about fried veggies and seafood that I just crave (although it doesn't hold a candle to shrimp tempura sushi, which is the most delicious of all food and I wish to someday be buried in a vat of it so I can eat my way out), but I never get it because it adds too much to the bill. NOT YESTERDAY THOUGH. Yesterday I went crazy and spent that extra $6.
Randy Reynaldo is back with another issue of his all ages adventure comic, Rob Hanes Adventures. Issue 11 is titled "Rob Hanes and the Pirates" and is a quick-paced adventure story putting the main character Rob Hanes through an adventure in a thinly veiled version of North Korea and its movie-obsessed dictator. There's a preview up at ComicSpace here.

As Scott Kurtz debuted a new site design for PvP, I wrote asking whether webcomic websites be an artistic extension of the comic, essentially extending the look and feel of the comic, or is that not that important?

It's the weekend... go outside already! :)
Take a tip from Tom: back dat data up! I just got a HP Media Vault myself to back up the 3 different machines on the home network. Over at FLEEN, Gary has some words of get-off-your-butt-and-protect-your-data.
Warren Ellis has a post on print following several posts he's made about the low and dropping circulation figures for the existing Sci-Fi fiction magazines. When Ellis muses about the market of comics and words and the web and printer's ink, I read it. He's smart and he's not dogmatic at all (either for priint, the web, the way it is or some fetish of the way it should be). Things are changing and I hope better business/marketing/distribution models get sorted out for everyone's sake.
Last week to vote for the Harvey Awards -- ballots are due Friday, August 15, 2008.

This is the capper to a terrific run by Warren Ellis and Mike Deodado Jr. I've run somewhat hot and cold on the title. I can't say that Deodado's art has been hitting the target for me on every title, but I've by no means been dissatisfied with it either. Ellis, of course, is a proven writer, but you really have to respect what he'd achieved with the character of Norman Osborn / Green Goblin. Moreso than anyone else, Ellis has brought renewed energy to this multi-faceted character and made him relevant to the entire Marvel Universe. Pop Syndicate has a...

June is Steampunk Month at ComixTalk, and I take on a webcomic series by one of the comic fields’ modern masters, Warren Ellis. Check out my review for FreakAngels, which may take the concept of “steampunk” to levels that some people might not be comfortable with.
Read my FreakAngels review on Comixtalk!
In celebration of Steampunk Month here at ComixTalk, I've decided to take on the task of reviewing Warren Ellis' FreakAngels. Be warned, though: if "steampunk" to you means stovepipe hats, pocket watches, and parasols, then you may be a little disoriented by the direction Mr. Ellis takes his comic.
But then again, beyond the cutesy wordplay on "cyberpunk," what's steampunk, anyway?
