You never call! Maybe you should instead? Seriously, we'd love to know what you think about RBS.


Occasional posts from (usually) Bram and (sometimes) Monica about comics in general, this comic in particular, art, design, publishing, visual culture, and far, far too many things about actual squirrels.


Some mad typographic goodness, circa 1922. One of the commenters notes that you can get your own.



Dave's Long Box is always a treat, but sometimes I think his Hiatus Weeks show off his best work — check out the WWII stuff this week.



Back from Phoenix — a great time, more later. In the meantime, I hope everyone's already started celebrating Banned Book Week.


We'll be staffing the 7000 BC table tomorrow and Sunday at the Phoenix Cactus Comicon. Stop by table 9 in the Small Press Creators area and support self-publishing!


The dirty car art of Scott Wade. Via M+D.


The latest Squirrel Tales, with art by Pete Ziomek, is available for download. To be notifed when new issues are posted send an email.


I'm today's Find of the Day!


Get ready for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arrr.


And, in the Lists over at McSweeney's, World Leader Fonts.



Along with a new line of iPods, Apple has unveiled these mighty cool-looking iPod nano ads. And their new shuffle has that brilliant "how did somebody not already think of this already?" quality.


Also from last week, what Annihilus can teach us about brand building.

cross-platform... madness!

So on Bram's aforementioned trip, he pulled up a number of websites — including this one — on a Windows box, using IE. Horrors! My friends and dear readers, please believe me when I say I had NO IDEA the page looked that broken. I test my CSS in Firefox, Safari, and IE! ... but on a Mac. I figured IE on Mac (since it's old, and discontinued, and unsupported) would be way touchier than — or at least equivalent to — the up-to-date PC version.


Well... I spent this morning fighting with the CSS and Blogger, so if you're not seeing something like this (it's a half-size screenshot), please let me know either via email or leave a comment. Thanks. And apologies to those of you who thought this site was supposed to look that way.


Returned from the business trip and the continuation to Baltimore Comic-Con. A great time, thanks to Raphael.

The RSS feed had broken, so I had a lot of catching up to do at the Mary Worth-obsessed Comics Curmudgeon, who last week pointed out a series of short films dramatizing the strip. It's wild, weird stuff.


Even thought it's been running for a while, just ran across this, which is kinda like Snopes for comics. I've spent way, way too much of my downtime on this trip reading it.


Andy (among others yesteday) noted the opening of Geppi's Entertainment Museum. This trip I'm on actually takes me to Baltimore for a day, but I think we'll be spending our time at the Baltimore Comic-con.


Yesterday was the kickoff for Scott McCloud's new Making Comics and its tour — which, frustratingly, takes him to a bunch of our old haunts in the Northeast (including the alma mater), but we're still hoping to get him to New Mexico.


Matt's been hyping some of the new things going on over at DC Conspiracy Webcomics. Andrew has taken over the art on Spadefoot and Mara has moved her Black as White over to the site. Meanwhile, Evan has been revealing more about the secret of the shoes in Ataxia Overdrive.


After Marc and I got to reminiscing about Jet Danger, Agent of R.A.N.G.E.R., he was good enough to dive into his long boxes to dig up, scan, and post the cover of his copy of Surreal Tales #192.


Yeah, Dave's right — issue one rocked. I remember losing track and having to hunt down three and four years after publication. What a waste that was.
