  • Cory Doctorow’s Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now (which collects six graphic adaptations of his short stories) is getting huge orders from Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million.
  • Jeff Newelt, of Heeb Magazine covers Gary Panter.
  • Also from Heeb, Joe Infurnari’s Working Girl Golem.
  • The End is Here–but in this case, it’s the beginning of Thomas Baehr’s Act-I-Vate solo project.
  • Becky Cloonan posts some new art at her blog.
  • Another teacher jumping on the “kids should read comics” bandwagon. Which is a good thing.
  • Dash Shaw’s Bottomless Belly Button gets animated.
