  • LT,
    I appreciated the Alan Moore's Saga of the Swamp Thing review (I will look in my library as well for it) & the Dave's Long Box Blog was also a welcome addition. Thanks for all the recomendations. Also, Did you enter CGS magna/anime contest? I am just curious.

    Loyal Fan,

  • You said you would like some sort of one place to read all of your comics...

    my housemate uses http://comic-nation.com to keep track of all the comics she reads

  • LT,

    Please read Torso. It is one of the best crime fiction graphic novels I've ever read.

  • LT,

    Just a thought.... you seem to do a lot of web research to see the status of books such as Brownsville and the Torso movie. Bendis and Kleid are both very active online. Have you thought of e-mailing them or posting a question on their website message boards? Both would be happy to reply.

    In regards to comics shops, if you are in SF-proper, you may want to try Isotope http://www.isotopecomics.com/ or ComixExperience http://www.comixexperience.com/ . James Sime at Isotope is a really cool guy who is SOOO enthusiatic about comics. Brian Hibbs of Comix Experience also writes a terrific column about comic retailing called "Tilting at Windmills" that can be found here: http://www.newsarama.com/pages/Tilting/Tiltingindex.htm It may answer some questions in regards to how comics distribution differs from music and what bugs there may be in your proposed system.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Lene,
    Loved the show, as usual. Wanted to suggest a method of "subscription" to you.
    Most browsers now have "tabbed" browsing wherein a new tab is added as you open window.
    (You'll have to enable tabs if it isn't already)
    So, in your bookmarks, Make yourself a folder - subscriptions, or whatever - and put all the sites that you want to see on a daily basis in that folder.
    Then go to Bookmarks pull down
    Then Bookmarks Bar
    Once you're over the folder, another window will open
    Go to the bottom of that window and click on "Open In Tabs"
    A new window will open with tabs for all the places that you want to visit. Then you can just click on them one at a time, read them, and close the window when you're done.

    I apologize if this is common knowledge. I considered myself quite the hero the day I discovered it!

    Without a doubt your best show. You're including everything that I love about your show, and adding a lot of stuff that I'm liking.
    I think you've really hit your stride!

  • Hey! Someone just sent me a copy of this podcast!

    Thanks for the good words about BROWNSVILLE - the book will be out this February from NBM (www.nbmpublishing.com) and Jake and I are thrilled - we'll both be in Maryland this weekend to promote it at the Small press Expo (www.spxpo.com) - please come by and say hi!

  • I wish the Libraries in my area carried a wider variety of comics. Pretty much the only thing we can find around here is super-current super hero stuff and enough bad manga to choke an otaku. There are some Frank Miller Batman trades, but for the most part nillsville on anything else that might be interesting.

    I did manage to find some of Hayao Miyazaki's manga, which is pretty cool though.

    As for the Buckaroo Banzai thing, I know that Peter Weller is interested in doing a sequel, so one day maybe...

  • Oh yeah, at the end of your podcast when you're talking about the boob war stuff, that reminded me of my friend back in high school. We were all comic dorks that took all the art classes for an excuse to draw comics for school credit, and I remember him distinctly drawing boobs with quarters as guides. Ah man, how sad...
