I’ve been waiting for a chance to actually read Forty Five by Andi Ewington and I’m taking this opportunity to write a review on a pdf the folks at Com.X provided. Rather than repeat the obvious, I’m going to assume you’ve read at least one of the interviews and understand the basics. (If you want to read more of the interviews with Andi, you can start here.)
There is a Terminology page with about thirty terms; some of them you probably know like AWOL or HAZMAT but others are very creative like S-Book, Flambo and Norman. All of them make perfect sense within the setting context. There is also the nice touch by the use of the standard disclaimer: names-and-locations-have-been-changed-in-some-instances. It’s a small detail that added to the feel of the book.

Real short post here todayâ€¦ Iâ€™m rewriting the script, slowly but surely, and have had to address, yet again, the whole Sam/Sammy debate.

Tim Lane blew me away earlier in the year with his hardcover collection of stories, Abandoned Cars which was published by Fantagraphics. His intricate linework married to gritty stories of loners, criminals and doomed lovers is a match made in heaven for those of us that like our tales to be a little harder. On top of that he uses his incredible draftsmanship for illustration work as well.
I was excited to land an interview with him for our Masters of Ink series. He was extremely helpful in getting me some new artwork and comic pages to present to you.

I pulled this from Warren Ellisâ€™ blog.Â Ellis is a bit of a hero to me, and this article is particularly well conceived:

I got a phone call on Friday. A nice man with a heavy asian accent asked me if my address was a business or a residence.

In a recent interview with Brian and Justin of Comics Coast-To-Coast I said that pre-orders would open in â€œabout two weeks.â€ (aside: I also said some other stuff. Listen to the podcast! My bit begins about 10 minutes in.)

Normally, I don't do this, but it's been kind of a busy week for me.
Firstly, after six months of downtime, The Nice's forums have been brought back and upgraded from UBB6 to phpBB3. There was a server crash in October that brought our old forums down, so we've moved to a more stable and maintainable system - and from a collection of thousands of text files to a real database. The old forum is available in read-only mode for private messages (which couldn't be migrated) and anything else we may have missed.
Secondly, the entire archives of Unlike Minerva are back online. For the last few years we only had an edited version up, which didn't include the original pre-restart beginning. Since we've got the tenth anniversary coming up on March 15th, it's only fair to show what it's the anniversary of. This also puts Unlike Minerva and its sequel, You Say it First at over 2000 comics, combined.

There has been lots of good feedback in the comments under the â€œMusing upon a site redesignâ€ entry. Please donâ€™t be intimidated by the large number of posts. Go ahead and reply with a comment on that entry. And if youâ€™ve got a cool idea for something Iâ€™m not doing, by all means add that.

I realize that Iâ€™m probably going to alienate a huge portion of my readers here, but I find xkcd to a rather hit-and-miss comic. This is coming from someone who has an engineering degree. (The again, as Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory says, â€œEngineering is merely the slow younger brother of physics.â€)
