It’s raining and I’m going to bed early to be refreshed for tomorrow at MoCCA and what’s sure to be an epic evening, so I have links for you.
Because it’s Scalped week, and because I have relocated away from my beloved Brave New Worlds comics in Philly and my friend there with whom I chat each week about how amazing that book is, I suggest you read Jason Aaron’s Scalped Secrets over at Standard Attrition. You will like them. And if you don’t, it’s probably because you have not taken my advice to read Scalped yet, and thus there is no hope for you.
Speaking of Standard Attrition, Joshua Dysart is the newest member of the coolest club on the ‘net. Go tell him hello and tell him you’re enjoying Unknown Soldier. (What, you’re not reading THAT, either? Do you people never listen to me?)
Via Kieron Gillen, a bit of meta news: the comic that’s sort of like a fanzine has its own fanzine. That’s right, Phonogram vs. The Fans will be out for San Diego Comic Con. Someone pick me up a copy, will you? The cover art is by Phonogram‘s own Jamie McKelvie, and it’s gorgeous.
Molly Crabapple is in Inked magazine, talking comics, art and tattoos, and looking fabulous.
Comics Worth Reading reviews You Have Killed Me, by Jamie S. Rich and Joelle Jones, and makes me want to read it. (Though she hurts the film noir fan in me a little bit by snarking on the plot of The Big Sleep, one of the true classics of the genre…but y’all don’t want to hear me go off on Bogie ‘n’ Bacall, do you?)
Splash Page has more previews of 9, an animated film that looks breathtaking.
All right, my pretties, it’s time for me to curl up with the dog and watch some Angel. Enjoy!
