* I've heard nothing but nice things about the recently-concluded ECCC, although I'll keep my ears open and will cover anything newsworthy as a stand-alone. We're right in the middle of con season now, and it won't stop to even breathe for a couple of weeks until mid-May. Congrats to the organizers.
* speaking of con season, what better way to kick off MoCCA Festival week than with an anticipatory post by the usually reflective folks at Secret Acres. It's been a long winter.
* finally, there's a story here about a discovery of "sexy artwork" from the great Osamu Tezuka. Tezuka worked in a variety of styles and released a bunch of sexually-charged material as an actual maker of comics, and this article is really old-fashioned in its view of such work, but it's always nice to see more art from a master.
