* this interview of Ben Dewey that was up a while back notes that he'll be wrapping up Tragedy Series, even as a book is due in March 2015. The reason? To avoid sucking, basically.

* two comics on-line that I read and enjoyed over the last week are this Vineyard Gazette effort from Paul Karasik, and whatever the hell Bastien Vives seems to have going on here.

* Madefire adds four including Archie and Archaia, both solid gets.

* good catch by Heidi MacDonald here that Apple is continuing to offer deals on digital comics -- I sort of doubt there's any kind of specific element of agency involved, but I suppose there could be.

* Blurb has acquired the employees of Graphicly, which will shut down. Kevin Melrose has a fine write-up.

* finally, I am still enjoying Drew Weing's The Creepy Casefiles of Margo Maloo, partly for the visual punch of elements like the random half-panel below.
