First, I wanted to welcome Nadim Damluji, who is going to start a monthly column here called “Can the Subaltern Draw?” You can read Nadim’s bio here. His first column was posted earlier today.

Second — last week I took the weekend off…and it was such a relief that I think I’m going to make it a regular thing. I may post something small every so often, but in general we’ll just run Monday to Friday from now on.


I think I may go back to doing a weekly roundup of posts. We’ll see how it goes…but anyway, this week:

James Romberger interviewed Gene Colan.

I posted a downloadable contemporary R&B mix.

Stephanie Folse continued her Elfquest re-read.

I posted a story about Philip K. Dick through history.

Pam Newton discussed corruption, or the lack therof, in the Wire.

I talked about Tom Spurgeon’s review of Chester Brown’s Paying For It.

Melinda Beasi and Michelle Smith discussed the manga series Please Save My Earth.

I reviewed Fumi Yoshinaga’s All My Darling Daughters.

And Nadim Damluji talked about the Arab Superman.

Somewhat over-carbonated, but basically solid article on Chris Ware and modernity.
