As I mentioned earlier in the week, Alex Buchet has sadly ended his column on HU.

After a brief departure, Domingos Isabelinho has returned, and will once more be writing his column Monthly Stumblings We’re glad to have him back!

Also, I’m very pleased to announce that Marguerite Van Cook is going to start a monthly column focused on comics and the sublime.

And finally, Sean Michael Robinson and Joy DeLyria are publishing an entire book of H.B. Ogden’s The Wire. Congrats to them both!


Matthias Wivel discussed Dominique Goblet’s autobiographical graphic novel Faire semblant c’est mentir.

Robert Stanley Martin talked about the comics canon and whether we have to accept it.

I posted my old zine in which I illustrated Wallace Stevens’ 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.

I reviewed Chester Brown’s Paying For It.

I posted a dreampop download.

And Robert Stanley Martin had some further thoughts on the canon and why comics critics should do better.

Oh…and for our featured archive post this week, Kinukitty talks Kiss lyrics.

Utilitarians Everywhere

At Splice Today I reviewed the new Fleet Foxes album.

Also at Splice, I talked about the new J. Lo album.

At Comixology I talked about Wonder Woman’s costume.

Other Links

Ariel Schrag has the best Lady Gaga illustration.

Matthias Wivel has a skeptical take on Dan Clowes’ Mister Wonderful.

And I can’t remember if I linked this, but Nina Stone on Brightest Day is still funny.
