Welcome to the third week of December! In today’s ComixTalk 2009 Roundtable, (did I mention the 2009 ComixTalk Roundtable was posted today?) Johanna Draper Carlson mentions motion comics; Mike Rhodes blogs about motion comics, leading off with a link to this NPR story on it.
Last week, I posted Time Magazine’s interview with cartoonist Julia Wertz on her lack of health insurance and Tom Spurgeon posted a round-up of several posts written in reaction to it, notably one from cartoonist Evan Dorkin. Also in last week’s news, Johanna Draper Carlson covered Ryan Sohmer’s post about his horrible, no good, bad experience with DragonCon.
And this is kind of a narrow-interest piece, but as someone who has tinkered with a website about comics for almost a decade now, reading this post about the good and the bad of the new tcj.com is kind of interesting.
BEST OF 20009 LISTS
- DC bookstore, Politics & Prose, posts its 2009 Favorites for Graphic Literature list.
- The Daily Cross Hatch lists various artists’ top 5 comic picks for the year.
- Top 5 Comics lists for the year from various readers of the Comics Reporter.
Colleen Frake posted her NaGraNoWriMo effort here. They ought to make a 30 day graphic novel effort an official variant on National Novel Writing Month (and maybe just call it NaCoWriMo for National Comic Writing Month).
