Assembled, Zipped, Transferred and Downloaded: Digital News
By Tom Spurgeon
* the kus! people are trying some digital comics offerings
; I like all of these comics.
* I'm not sure I linked to Calvin Reid's now week-old report
about Comixology's recent run of successful benchmarks reached. No bigger ongoing story in comics than Comixology.
* someone has started a blog devoted to sex in comics
. I'm not sure if I wrote that sentence that way because I don't know who the person is or that I don't think we should know, but I'm going to keep it just like that.
* Gary Tyrrell notes
the rapid and mostly behind-the-scenes growth of Hiveworks.
* not comics: I had not known that one of the holiday's fairly substantial news stories
came from an independent media operator. I know I use the small size of CR
as an excuse not to write or break major news stories, and that's not particularly admirable.
* finally, Dave Kellett writes about his future plans
. This is important to note here because Kellett is an important figure in this world of comics, but it's also worth noting for its orientation recalling Gary Tyrrell's assertion that a way to look at webcomics is as a specific group of talented people enabled by the relationships they forge with their readerships through comics to pursue a variety of different projects.
