Work on Cover Art for DAR 2 by Erika Moen

Just got a bunch of books in from Microcosm Publishing that I will be taking a look at this week (thanks Jessie Duke!).  If you've got a book or other webcomic-related object you're interested in having reviewed send it to "Robert Tanner, P.O. Box 3362, Arlington VA 22203" -- I can't promise every book will get a full-blown review from someone (most do though) but they all get a mention on the site.

If you're going to read one thing today I'd recommend this great post on Will Eisner by Christopher Irving over at GraphicNYC.

CRAFT: Erika Moen shows you how she made the cover art for her second print volume of DAR.

MILESTONES: It's Odori Park's first year anniversary on the web his upcoming Saturday.  Creator Chris Watkins is soliciting guest strips to help celebrate - send them to him by March 15th.

TOOLS: At Webcomic Planet, Bryon Wilkins reviews the Comic Life software -- it's primarily marketed as a photo to but Wilkins talks about its comic-making usefulness.

JUSTIFY MY HYPE: It's Shark Week at Hockey Zombie!  It's also Hockey Zombie's fifth year anniversary.

JUSTIFY GENE's HYPE: Creator Gene Luen Yang reminds us that Derek Kirk Kim is serializing T.U.N.E. at lowbright.com RIGHT NOW (It's also planned to be published in dead tree format by First Second).

NOT WEBCOMICS: Ted Rall time - first, Scott Kurtz throws him into a recent comic -- unless you've followed the online Kurtz-Rall verbal fragfests I'm not sure that's a 4th panel-worthy cameo there.  Second, I saw this story on TechDirt where they reported that Rall recently argued "that Italy got it right in finding three Google execs criminally liable for a video some kids posted to Google Video."  Rall is now officially in the running with Wiley for the all-time webcomic-luddite title.
