* looks like we'll see a Joann Sfar cover to a Punisher comic book some time ahead. Click through for the fullest image possible, it's pretty neat.

* It's the last day of January and I know what I want for Christmas.

* here's a short preview of the forthcoming Geof Darrow art book, due in July. They went wide with the official announcement today.

* did I know that 2017's Best American Comics guest editor was Ben Katchor?

* because of the Fantagraphics oral history a few folks have asked me what history books about comics I like. One I'm greatly looking forward to is Cullen Murphy's remembrance of growing up in cartoonist-rich southern Connecticut in the third quarter of the last century. It's like they made that one come to life just for me.

* finally, I liked this post from Gary Tyrrell dancing in and among the details of the NYT decision to no longer do a bestseller list for comics.
