REVIEW: El Santo gives Hanna is Not a Boy's Name 4 stars. Despite the name, the comic sounds like the offspring of Quentin Tarantino and Twilight. And Sean Kleefeld reviews Havoc, the sequel to Chris Wooding's text-comic hybrid novel Malice.
TOOLS COPYRIGHT: The online tech series Tekzilla hypes the Comical program for reading webcomics. Unfortunately this is another one of those grab-only-the-image file type of programs. I was kind of surprised that Tekzilla co-host Veronica Belmont made no mention of any possibility of copyright issues at all.
MAILBAG: Luke writes that his older brother Adam Whitely has recently launched a website for his comic adaptation of the ancient text The Ramayana. Adam has posted a lengthy preview of the work which he intends to publish as a full length graphic novel. He is still unpublished and unsigned. Check it out - what do people think of the preview? From a quick perusal, there's a lot of interesting artwork in there, but my familiarity with the story is limited to Nina Paley's Sita Sings the Blues (and resulting conversations with folks more knowledgeable about the saga).

Pontus Madsen and Christian Fundin, the Swedish artists/fashion models behind the popular gaming-themed webcomic Little Gamers, will be signing copies of their brand-new "Volume 4" at a free event on September 11.
The long-awaited book will collect the fourth year of the comic, and according to co-creator Madsen, the collection is "filled to the
rafters with spelling errors and grammatical nightmares."
The book is also "funnier than the older ones," he said.

I think in the digital world it's probably wise to always keep up with how other forms of expression are adapting to the web. Comics in some ways has been far ahead but it doesn't mean there's not learnin' to be had from music and movies and whatnot.
