…there’s always room for a few more comics. This week is Air #10 and Herogasm #2, Hellblazer #256 and Young Liars #16 and of course, Phonogram #2.3.
Because, like many of you, I’m feeling the lousy-economy pinch, I’m going to open this week up with a call for some webcomics recommendations. Who’s doing something new and different with comics online?
Finally, I don’t know if you’ve been watching the (rather lousy) news coverage of the protests following the elections in Iran, or following the (much better) feeds on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube. Either way, today felt like a good day to re-read Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi’s classic tale of growing up in revolutionary Iran. I know this is the space where you get to tell me what to do, but I really can’t recommend Persepolis enough. It’s a view into a country that gets universally bad press, and as we’re watching the people fight oppression, it’s nice to see inside the hearts and minds of people who’ve lived through it.
