Blursday

It’s the second day of the week, so Joe McCulloch is here to invite you to read the comics of today.

Elsewhere:

Good news for London: Seiichi Hayashi will be there (or here, if you’re reading this there) in London next week to celebrate the launch of his new publication from Breakdown Press, shepherded and translated by TCJ-contributor (and so much more) Ryan Holmberg. The cover is below.

Also note these days is U.D.W.F.G. (underdarkweirdfantasyground), a six-month long project with the same five contributors to each issue, including the first new comics from Mat Brinkman to see print in a while. Also: Tetsunori Tawaraya, Miguel Angel Martin, Ratigher, Paolo Massagli.

Still elsewhere in this world, the notable links for the day comics The New York Times, a newspaper I love to read (Make all the snarky jokes you want about the Times, but it’s an awesome machine.), but which continues to publish comics news items only a Comics Buyer’s Guide fan could read. John Romita Jr! A Dick Tracy/Little Orphan Annie crossover! That is some weird, subterranean shit.

    Dan, you’re right about the Times, and these days they take comics seriously. If you count animation, these days there’s often multiple articles about comic arts in the paper.

    The Times’ editorial columnists are mostly a joke. The arts section as a whole, on the other hand, is essential reading.
