Links of Interest
There are so many great podcasts coming your way from The Comics Alternative soon, a couple of which I'll be involved in. (The ones that are already there are excellent as well.) Check out the website or follow the CA on Facebook or Twitter.
One of those podcasts will cover webcomics, a topic that I've only recently started learning about. We already pretty much have our lineup for our webcomics episode and probably won't cover this one, but the new webcomic Terms of Service examines the enormous amounts of data we use through our many electronic devices and how this affects piracy. I haven't read it yet, but it's available for free for a limited time.
I haven't yet listened to the Publisher's Weekly podcast PW More to Come, but it's devoted to comics and graphic novels. The magazine itself is as expensive as all get-out (mainly because it is, uh, weekly), but you can probably find it at your local library.
If you're into collected editions of newspaper strips, you'll want to check out the current Previews catalog. They're highlighting several collected strips, some of which are either coming soon, will be reissued, or are available now.
Finally, if you haven't checked out Lynda Barry's new book Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor, you should. You can read my recent review of it here.
