Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

* Carl Nelson wrote in to inform me that Handa has a new site up. I would have made a "go, look" of this but the images were too small for me to steal.

* I missed this initially, but it looks like Hans Rickheit is adjusting the structure of his webcomics output.

* finally, bookmark Andi Watson's store for digital versions of his great, recent-year comics work.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Alex Hoffman on A Thousand Coloured Castles. Philippe Leblanc on Found. Leonard Pierce on The Battle Of Churubusco. Cory Doctorow on The Prince And The Dressmaker.

* I want to buy this.

* I haven't seen a whole lot of Parkland shooting cartoons, but one by Pia Guerra has received positive news coverage. Here are some very good cartoonists talking about doing such cartoons.

* festivals extra: the small show that programs like a big show is an interesting thing to me.

* not comics: there is apparently a one-man stageplay about the life and times of Jay Darling. Sounds good to me.

* finally: I love Prince William's practiced, focused attention on the book in his hands. It's a good one, though: Bryan Talbot! That's the comics-maker at right.
