Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital


By Tom Spurgeon

* I haven't gotten rid of Poppa Bears at Trip City, so I'm guessing that means I haven't included that bit of publishing news on the site. If I have, consider this double-announcement penance for being so scattered I couldn't remember.

image* Gary Tyrrell at Fleen throws a spotlight on Comic Chameleon. He is very approving.

* one big publishing news in webcomics item of recent vintage -- which I totally missed until one of the creators sent me a nice e-mail -- is the return after several years of A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible. This is sort of like a seventh season of The Larry Sanders Show popping up on HBO some Thursday. Bigger news is the ending of American Elf, James Kochalka's influential and very good diary comic, a total career highlight. I will write about both a little more elsewhere, but I wanted to make sure I got something up.

* go here to get/find the latest issue of SVA's digital anthology, INK.

* Shaenon Garrity writes about three different kinds of webcomics she can't believe she's not seeing. It is kind of odd that there hasn't been a natural scramble to certain kinds of genres in that realm of comics. I have no idea why that is.

* so I guess this means you can get Classics Illustrated digitally now.

* finally, a new Bandette came out this week. I like that one.
