Since I haven't been contributing much to Comixpedia in a while I feel a bit iffy about promoting my own posts to the frontpage so I thought I'd just compile a short list of newsitems here for the taking.
- Retailer Brian Hibbs' analysis of 2006 Bookscan numbers (graphic novels sold through bookstores) is available at Newsarama. Megatokyo is fourth best selling among DC titles with its volume 4 selling 16,331 copies. Penny Arcade, from publisher Dark Horse, scores 13,213 copies for volume 1 and 7280 for volume 2.
- Am I the only one who've missed that Les McClaine's Johnny Crossbones, which was nominated for the 2005 Eisner award for digital comics, has been picked up by Dark Horse as well.
- Oops one more, Newsarama interviews Gina Briggs, whose webcomic Red String has also been picked up by Dark Horse (a pattern emerging?)
