The Cross Hatch Dispatch 7/22/09

[Above, Mykl Sivak goes on a wonderfully disturbing spree. Below, the Dispatch shops till we drop.]

  • The Sequential Art Collective Blog discusses the bizarre “Alphabet of the Arcane” from Justin Maudslien (aka Sub-Human’s Mr. M), who shares tidbits about comics and cartoons…and talks a heck of a lot about monkeys. 
  • If you’re a Studio Ghibli fan AND a fan of Little Nemo in Slumberland, don’t watch this – you may soil yourself. It’s a video test pilot from Ghibli for a Little Nemo movie that ultimately folded before production – what do you say we get them to bring it back, eh?
  • Bob Fingerman sold his second novel, Pariah to Tor, and gives us a zombie-rific peek at an art sample, to whet our appetites before its release in July 2010.
  • Mainstream or not, G-Man from Chris Giarrusso is pretty freaking cool, and now, his website provides us with another work-time distraction: a G-Man Sliding Puzzle Super Brain Teaser.
  • Someone on here’s most likely mentioned this before (probably me – I have short term memory loss), but who am I to compromise what I think is cool? Mykl Sivak posts this deliciously creepy strip about a food shopping trip.
  • Matt Groening is the personified grail of the geeks, and, if you haven’t caught it already, is in a documentary about his life, influences and path to success.
  • This is some “heavy” stuff – (get it? quote from the movie? no?) video spinners Eclectic Method mash up the BEST MOVIE EVER MADE: Back to the Future.
