What can I say about last week beyond “Thank you, Neil?” Guest blogger Neil Kleid did an outstanding job, as both the comments he received and our hits attest. Nice work; we’ll have to do this again in the future. If you missed any of Neil’s contributions, he summarized them in a post on Friday.
And if you enjoyed what Neil did, pay him back by checking out some of his stuff. Ursa Minors!, published by Slave Labor Press, is available in finer comic shops everywhere, as well as via the Slave Labor online store. Todt Hill can be read over at the Chemistry Set. Brownsville, Ninety Candles and Call of the Wild can be found at finer shops, as well as at various sites around the web, such as Mars Import and Amazon. Keep an eye out for Migdal David next year. And check out his website on a regular basis to see what else he has up his sleeves in the coming months.
Of course, Neil wasn’t the only one busy last week …

This coming week will bring some changes around B@N. First off, we’re retiring our long-running Meanwhile … column. Meanwhile … was launched back before we made the move to Newsarama and were still The Great Curve. Originally written by Shane Bailey, Melissa Krause took it over in August and continued to provide our weekly “round up” column on the comics blogosphere. This coming Tuesday will see the last Meanwhile … column.
But don’t despair … we still plan to cover the blogosphere. Over the past few weeks, Melissa has also started doing Point/Counterpoint posts on how bloggers are reacting to specific issues, and we like it so much we’ve made it her regular gig. That means more Melissa throughout the week, not just on Tuesday!
In addition, this week will see new features debut from both Michael May and Kevin Melrose. I won’t blow the surprise on what they’ll be talking about each week, but you won’t have to wait long to find out. Look for Michael’s tomorrow, and Kevin’s on Tuesday.
