Linkblogging's gonna be a little weird for a while, since we've been gone for so long and so much material has been missed and/or is already ancient in internet terms (by the way, spending no more than fifteen minutes a day using a computer and/or reading the internet is a highly recommended way to spend a week or two, if you can swing it). But here are a few highlights from recent days that are worth taking a look at if you're so inclined.

The Rumpus interviewed Adrian Tomine.
Domingos Isabelinho reviews the recent Carl Barks collection.
Finally, I really liked this Eddie Campbell blog post.
