[Above, Tony Millionaire celebrates the holidays. Below, the high holy Dispatch.]

  • In case you’re still confused about the whole “Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School” sketching/drinking/burlesque-ing phenomenon, learn the details in this article in the New York Times.
  • King Con: it’s a comic and animation convention, it’s new, and it’s in Brooklyn. Show up on November 7 and 8 to see “60+ of Brooklyn’s best artists.”
  • The second Donation Derby book is out. It is aptly titled “$7679.64,” but the book costs a lot less than that.
  • FallCon is this weekend, October 10-11, on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Show up early to see if they have any leftover deep fried candy bars.
  • Also this weekend is the Baltimore Comic-Con, at the Baltimore Convention Center. Baltimore is once again hosting the annual Harvey Awards.
  • For those in neither the Midwest nor New England, there is Boone Comic-Con, in Boone, North Carolina.
  • Tony Millionaire was recently interviewed on Inkstuds. He was one of the first guests on the show, and returns now to talk about his new book, The Art of Tony Millionaire, among other things.
  • Are you aware of the Manchester Comix Collective? If you are not in Manchester, England, you it might be difficult to join their ranks, but you can still ogle the art.
  • The team behind Johnny Wander recently made a comic in which they declared themselves the “Multicultural Squad,” joking about the high level of diversity within their apartment. One week later, a reader/musician sent in a “Multicultural Rangers Theme Song.” As usual, the internet = progress.
