Hey one bit of SPX-related news I forgot to relay is that Dave Roman's all age webcomic Astronaut Academy will be a graphic novel from First Second -- scheduled for publication next summer. Very exciting -- Roman is a great cartoonist and I think this book is a great project for him.
Posting is going to be light to non-existant over the Columbus Day holiday here in the United States but I'll be back with more reviews next Tuesday. In the meantime here's some stories worth reading from around the Intertubes:
BUSINESS: Jason Brubaker of the webcomic ReMind writes up how he's been making money from his webcomic this year.
REVIEWS: CBR has a review of Dylan Meconis' Bite Me graphic novel (collected from the webcomic); Comics Alliance has a review of the webcomic Buttersafe; and Boing Boing praises Dan Goldman's Red Light Properties webcomic.
From the Mailbag: Sean O'Neill writes about a project he's working on -- a graphic novel for young readers called Rocket Robinson and the Pharaoh’s Fortune. O'Neill describes it as "a classic adventure story about a 12-year-old boy traveling in Egypt who discovers a plot to steal a secret ancient treasure." I hope to get a chance to read more of it - a quick look at is is promising.
