When Reporters Repeat

Brian Hibbs

So, the Dave Sim / IDW press release went out wide, and several sources are specifically reporting the story as though this means that IDW is publishing a paper collection of Cerebus comics. I do not think this is correct.  In fact, I’m sure it isn’t. Read the release again, slowly — this HAS to be for a DVD (?) collection of  the digital files, not a print book. (Edit: they’ve changed the title at AMOC, indicting it IS a DVD. Toldja!) Heidi also pitches it as being “rare and expensive” from “IDW Limited”, which might be one component of it — but given that “IDW Limited” items are NOT sold in stores, and the rest of the release talks…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 89: Accidents Will Happen

Jeff Lester

Oh, I just don’t know where to begin: last episode was held up on account of spinal aggravation and this episode starts with a SNAFU of the kind that had me tearing my rich abundant hair out of my head. (Hmmm, now that I think about it? I think…maybe that was neither my hair nor head?) But that’s the kind of episode this is–the one where our minds are made up but our mouths are undone. Nonetheless, Graeme McMillan and I were committed to *finally* finishing up answering your questions (seeing as we didn’t answer them in the same month you asked them…or technically the same season) and talking stuff like Action Comics #10; superhero movies and the geek comfort…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 82: The Problem With Problems

Jeff Lester

Hola, chicos! The above image is from Dave Sim’s Glamourpuss #24, just one of many fine comic book hoohahs under discussion in episode 82 of the latest podcast from the brilliant (but presently ill!) Graeme McMillan and the generally slow-on-the-uptake (but mostly healthy!) yours truly. I gotta say, we pretty much drove right in on this one, and ended up talking Action Comics #8 in the first three minutes of this two hour twenty-five minute blabapalooza, and also managed to hit topics like OMAC #8, the colorization of  Scott Pilgrim, the battles behind the TV show Community, a great blog post by Steve K. about the state of the comics Internet, Casanova #3, Supreme #20, Fatale #4, Strike Force Morituri,…  Read More…

NYCC: The Dream

Brian Hibbs

One of the big downsides of being sick is that you sleep a lot, but you’re not really sleeping WELL — tossing and turning all night long, waking up in pain, and the latest one, now that the antibiotics have started to work, the pain in the tonsils has switched to a sinus drip in the back of the throat, so that sleeping at night is sort of like being slowly waterboarded in your sleep. Joy. But, last night I finally had like 6 solid hours of REM sleep, and what do you know I dream about a comics convention. Actually, it was more like New York City itself had been turned INTO a giant comics convention, because my dream…  Read More…

Oh wow: Douglas is looking forward to April now.

Not what I would’ve expected Dave Sim’s new comic to be. Or, as one of the promo posters puts it: But it also makes sense–all the photorealist stuff in Latter Days, and the stuff he’s been writing recently about his fascination with Alex Raymond, Stan Drake, et al., suggests that this is exactly the kind of comic he’s going to enjoy drawing. (Why he uses “photorealism” instead of “photorealist” as an adjective I have no idea, but I’m sure he’s thought it out. Actually, of all the potential Dave Sim manifestos I could read, Why Photorealism Is The Best Kind of Cartooning is easily #1.) And those pages behind him in the author-promo photos look fantastic. I’m totally there.

Sorry for delay

Sunday and Monday I had a store project I needed to finish and forgot about until zero hour. All done, though. I just got back from the store (doing THIS week’s books), so let’s wrap LAST week by talking about all of the BOOKS you should go and pick up and your local funnybook emporium when you stroll in tomorrow. In friendly alphabetical order (Or, at least, Alpha by Diamond listings): B KRIGSTEIN COMICS HC: Yes it is pricey, but damnation, it’s worth every penny. Krigstein was a genius, and even the slightest story in this big-ass volume is pure gold. My one quibble: despite it being in the first, biographical volume, I think they missed a big boat by…  Read More…
