This looks awesome: Fantagraphics’ Flog blog shares a nice illustration piece by Tony Millionaire, for a book that sounds almost as awesome as the Millionaire piece looks.
Brian Hibbs on recent events: I enjoy reading Savage Critics ringleader Brian Hibbs’ posts on new comics, like this one on recent events like Fear Itself and “The Death of Spider-Man,” because he responds to the works not just as a fan (I liked this, I didn’t like that) or a critic (this was good, this was bad, here’s why) but also as a retailer. After all, he’s the guy who has to try and sell this stuff to his customers.
“Anyway, this was the most fun I’ve had in years and I’m really grateful for the response to it so far”: Artist Kevin Nowlan discusses his work on Hellboy: Buster Oakley Gets His Wish, a one-shot released this past Wednesday.
Doubleshot of Sims: Comics Alliance’s Chris Sims discusses “The Best, Worst and Weirdest Alternate Superhero Deaths In Comics” in light of Ultimate Spider-Man’s ultimate death, and joins forces with one of my personal favorite artists for a comic book that never happened, Fear Itself: 1942.
“Maddening ouroboros of self-reference” is actually a pretty good way to describe it: The Seattle Times reviews two recent episodes of the Batman: The Brave and the Bold cartoon.

Smith means “maddening ouroboros of self-reference” in a good way.
