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.


I, for one, welcome our new mecha-squirrel overlords.


New from Jamie — a video promo for his MYX series. Issue 3 should be printed any time now.


Latest comic Midnight Fiction's introduced me to: Tozo — the Public Servant. Starting from the beginning now; a little bit steampunk, a little bit Tintin.


Just added to the RSS feed, Rip Haywire, because of Midnight Fiction. Instantly liked the art, we'll see how it all goes.

Some Wonder Woman awesomeness at Hark A Vagrant.


So Friday's New Comic Night was pretty epic. Stumptown looks to be even more amazing than hoped; North 40, while still not my style, is smart and moving along; I wish Underground was better, but it's still clever and great-looking; Agents of Atlas v. X-Men, harmless fun.

I tell Raph that you learn as much from the bad ones as you do the good ones (which is why I've been following it [well, that and the alternate Russian history stuff]). But I'm hard-pressed to get anything out of this title other than the value of smart marketing.


A busy weekend for 7000 BC
Catching up on io9, there was this article on writing dialog, something I've been working on for … well, it's something I'm working on. You'll see the how it went in an upcoming issue of RBS.


Recently added to the RSS feed, Temple of the Seven Golden Camels, an animator sharing his storytelling knowledge. After a bit of time away, today's installment is staging, valuable even if you're working in two dimensions.
