It is just one of those weeks – next week looks like it might be a lost cause too. Anyone want a guest blogging spot next week? Have your computer talk to my computer.
In the meantime I wanted to plug Gordon McAlpin's Multiplex book Enjoy Your Show which definitely deserves a full review (hopefully soon!). When the comic started I mistook it for another comic about movies when all along it's an epic tale about people who work at a movie theater (many of whom love movies). This is a collection of the first year — some of the art definitely looks like it, but the writing and pacing is already there. A really well done production of a book too. And look Bryan Lee O'Malley gave it a plug — "Multiplex perfectly portrays the real foibles and friendships of a lousy job with a couple of perks. Also, it looks round and colorful and sweet, like delicious candy. I recommend reading Multiplex over getting an actual job."
One more note — former ComixTalk contributor Derik Badman has a new column up at the Hooded Utilitarian called Permanent Ink. Please go check it out – Derik is a very engaging writer who brings thoughtful, knowledgeable criticism to comics.
