Comics

some comic book reading

Good read: how modern superhero comics have abandoned the hero's personal life and supporting cast.

Chris Sims with a brief history of the Knight and Squire.

Eighteen great Batman panels.

A backhanded defense of... Rob Liefield (with bonus comments section comedy.) (But don't go hatin' on Bill Sienkiewicz here, because I will gut you.)

The unexpected comedy of the Todd McFarlane/Neil Gaiman court case.

As seen elsewhere: Anthony Bourdain eulogizes the late Harvey Pekar.
