Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital


By Tom Spurgeon

* the very loaded cartoon issue of Seven Days is available for digital view.

image* Frank Young is winding things down on his Stanley Stories blog, one of the best of its kind. He's up front about not having enticed a publisher into his writing a book about Stanley. I will miss that site.

* here's an old-fashioned on-line outreach: Small Press Expo would like you to go here, print this out, and maybe spread them around your town. I would have to imagine your comic shop would take one. I remember there was a point about 15 years ago when people thought this kind of thing is what the Internet would be about all of the time.

* speaking of SPX: banners.

* the great Kevin Huizenga has changed the name of his fine blog.

* Zainab Akhtar endorses the on-line effort Carriers, from Lauren Weinstein.

* the latest on-line column by everybody's pal Jog received the AV Club thumbs up.

* Tony Millionaire extolling the virtues of Achewood.

* finally, the use of on-line tools to organize local comics scenes hasn't really happened the way that some of thought it would. I'm not sure why. I'm still hopeful that some of the best scenes will start to have the bloggers and aggregators they deserve, and here's one for growing comics juggernaut Columbus, Ohio.
