Happy Thanksgiving to all of those (including me) in the good ol' US of A tomorrow. Despite it's historically shaky roots, it is AN AWESOME holiday that combines getting along with everyone else (at least for one day a year!) AND FOOD... lots and lots of food. I highly recommend it to any nation around the world.
A few stories of interest today:
An interview with John Backderf (more widely known as "Derf") - he's not much for the web but I've always thought highly of his work on his strip The City - funny, insightful, he's also been able to do some truly amazing longer form stories like TRASH and MY FRIEND DAHMER. He has a new book out now -- Punk Rock and Trailer Parks. (h/t JOURNALISTA!)
Todd Allen cranks through some numbers on whether creators would be better off working outside of the Marvel/DC-plex. This is all coming out of a very comic book-specific debate Robert Kirkman and Brian Bendis had online earlier this year. (One web-related bit - he has the PvP comic book sales numbers in his chart.)
