Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

* this Gary Tyrrell column from a while back reminds us that Brad Guigar (pictured) celebrated a pair of notable anniversaries. It's fascinating to me that this big chunk of webcomics makers are celebrating anniveraries that place them roughly into the full standard lifetime of a newspaper strip.

* I thought this mini-essay from Jason Shiga about judging the Ignatzes and moving into a digital comics serialization funny and sweet like a lot of what Jason writes and says. Total bonus for the Frank Cho reference. We forget sometimes because certain people have taken so naturally to elements of on-line presentation how difficult and frightening that can be.

* I overlooked this press release indicating which book from Alternative Comics are available digitally, or at least which comics were on January 21.

* I think I saw a note that this is available digitally in a way that makes this fresh news added to an old preview and not just one of those old things that inexplicably pops up as if it were new news. That's pretty work, either way.

* it's good to know that Comics & Cola will stick around past 2014, if only in a reduced way.

* finally, Alan Gardner updates us on the Daily Cartoonist makeover. That is a foundational site for me.
