–Artist Martin Hand is developing an unofficial “Marvel HANDbook” where he’s redrawing Marvel characters for his LiveJournal and posting fun facts about each character. HANDbook … you get it, right? Right? ’cause his last name is … ok, you get it.
–Bryan Lee O’Malley shares some desktop images for Scott Pilgrim Vol. 4.
–ComicBookConventions.com has information up about the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, which will be open in time for next year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
–Several creators have updated their websites, started blogs or kicked off message boards lately … here’s a round up:
Becky Cloonan has updated her website.
Brian Wood has started a Ning community that includes a blog and a forum. I’ve played around with Ning a little bit for my day job. It’s a site that lets you set up your own social network — kind of a more controlled/sane version of MySpace.
And Rantz Hoseley has started Panel and Pixel, “a forum for Comic Creators and the folks that support our refusal to get a real job.”
