* Drawn and Quarterly has some nice photos up from a recent Tom Gauld signing. Gauld is a really fun cartoonist, and I'm glad he's going to do San Diego this year. Or at least he's scheduled to do that one. I really liked the book.
* Regina-area media reacts to the "news" that they were done blown up in some Avengers comic.
* the comments at this Robot 6 post about the departure of the ComicsAlliance site are an interesting read. I was dismayed by a number of tweets that went right to the personal relationship one had with the site rather than the people involved -- I mean, I get it, but in many cases I thought professional peers would have a greater degree of sympathy than a snap-appraisal of the site's utility. I bet that was half of the people that get to write about comics for a full-time living.
