On the site:

It’s Day 4 of Leslie Stein’s Diary, in which we learn about happy family time. And, hey, Joe McCulloch snuck in a full scale review of the much-discussed new comic book from Brandon Graham, Prophet #21. No fair Joe, you’re making us look like slackers. Even more than you usually do! And Kristian Williams contributes a review of a recent edition of “Conversations” series: Alan Moore.

Elsewhere all around the web — Kim Thompson sent me this email with the following text, so like a good soldier, here ya go: “Kim Thompson forwarded this oldish link to an excellent interview with Asterix translator Anthea Bell: ’I was toying with the idea of asking her for an interview someday,’ Kim notes, ‘but this little piece does the job beautifully. She’s been my comics-translating idol since 1976, when my dad, who worked as a professional translator, brought home a translator’s newsletter that compared Asterix translations and specifically cited her and her co-translator’s work as outstanding.’

I love when someone else does my job for me. Let’s see, Michel Fiffe has a phantasmagoric blog post from Michel Fiffe, taking in many a topic and vision. Here’s a fine post about the great classic illustrator Howard Pyle and his students. Pyle being the foundation of the modern adventure illustration genre of drawing. That’s a mouthful. This post about a new Seth project is incredibly enticing. Order placed.

And I leave you with this blatant conflict of interest: A really awesome video by Black Pus, which is Brian Chippendale’s one-man-band mode. Warning: may cause motion sickness and lazy interpretations.

  1. I had a dream last night that Brian Chippendale was running some sort of band fight pay per view game thing in an enormous Brooklyn warehouse. For real. Maybe he is. Thanks for this.
