Today on the site: Emily Flake's week-long diary continues as cartoon-submission time rolls around at The New Yorker. And the irrepressible Joe McCulloch brings us his week in comics.
Elsewhere... Jan Berenstain, of The Berenstain Bears, passed away. The Forbidden Planet blog pays tribute to Brett Ewins. And two from Comics Alliance: Douglas Wolk on the great Gilbert Hernandez book, Birdland and a round-up of last weekend's announcements from Image Comics, which is becoming a go-to place for well-done and creative (and creator-owned) genre material. I don't think many people would have predicted Black Kiss 2 back in 1994. Huh.
