Comix Talk for Tuesday, May 18, 2010

So I am trying to find time to work on two longer stories -- one on the transition of comics to the Internet. Something with a larger perspective than a claustrophobic comics industry approach. Second on the kerfuffle last week about a webcomics iPad app. Lauren Davis wrote a legal analysis of RSS feeds and other aspects of the webcomics IPad that while not wrong, presented the issues as if they were settled. (Lauren's piece is worth reading - just read it as one possible answer to the issues.) They're not and it's actually something I know a lot about (and know enough experts to round it out) but it'll take time to do the research (legal analysis requires CITES, folks!). In the meantime...
- Meredith and Aaron are looking for a studio mate. If you're a working comics artist in Portland, OR that would be a great set-up to get in on.
- Wes Molebash of Max vs. Max asked his readers about how they create and it's a pretty interesting thread.
- Shaenon Garrity reviews Garfield: His 9 Lives. I had that book! At the time it was actually pretty interesting as I was (1) young and (2) hadn't read anything but newspaper comics yet.
- Randall Munroe f*cks with Wikipedia some more. Wikipedians kills each other off in a battle royal over the entry for malamanteau...
