I’m pretty sure I’ll be Twittering away my assault on my liver tonight at home while watching fine films, so you may want to keep an eye out for that. (And probably unfollow me as the night wears on.)
That “Eskimo Pie” typeface is just incredible.
It’s our last installment for 2009, and the last new comic book day for the year as well.
Dan spends holiday downtime in the traditional manner and Steve continues to enjoy his gift to himself.
Thanks, RJ White!
From the website:
Between 1957 and 1965 W. Eugene Smith made approximately 40,000 exposures both inside the loft building at 821 Sixth Avenue, of the nocturnal jazz scene, and of the street below as seen through his fourth-floor window.Smith’s photos are candid and evocative as hell. I’ve just ordered the book that brings together a select portion of this cultural treasure trove. There will also be an exhibition in New York that I’ll likely make the trip to see.
New Year’s plans are made.
Three of our cast wish you and yours the best.
The penultimate week of the year has many fine comics.
View HD/Full Screen for best effect.
I was recently mentioned by a creator in an interview on a popular-ish website in which she stated her disappointment that multiple bloggers (including myself) had not followed up on an email from her concerning her new digital comics.
- I do not run a comics news blog.
- I am not obligated to run any press releases.
- To be frank, I’m probably not your target audience.
I work in marketing. I get it. You want to reach out to people who you believe are evangelists and trendsetters. Honestly, I’m neither and there are tons of websites that get more traffic than me and have a broader spectrum in their postings that “Whatever shit hoves into Kevin’s view that he likes enough to type the bare minimum number of words about.” Forces Of Geek and Alert Nerd are two more-than-passable places that have a strong personal voice and are always looking for new content they think their readers would like, and those were just off the top of my head. I’m sure their sidebars will reveal many, many better targets for your campaign than my personal website.
(And as a slightly-rancorous aside, don’t call me out when I don’t cover your work, especially when it’s obvious that you’ve not looked at my site in years and seem to have missed out on the fact that I’d much rather tell people about my own comics than talk about someone else’s.)
It’s blatantly aimed at the retrofetishists out there who remember buying Kenner action figures off the peg, but I don’t recall having seen shoes in a blisterpack before. More views of the shoes themselves on the Superfly Deluxe site
Some apologies and a very special guest star.
It’s time to exchange gifts, but there’s a snag!
