Sean Gaffney on Whispered Words Vol. 1. Justin Giampaoli on The Woods #1. Grant Goggans on March Book One. J. Caleb Mozzocco on a bunch of different comics.

* Alan Gardner caught a TED talk from Randal Munroe.

* Rob Clough profiles Lance Ward and Kimball Anderson. Manjiorin talks to Abigail Blackman. Todd Gilchrist talks to Charlie Paul. Dave Richards talks to Christos Gage. Alex Dueben talks to Reinhard Kleist.

* Kevin Melrose notes a survey that says more than half the attendees of Emerald City Comicon were female. I have no doubt that's true, and if it's not true, it has to be damn close. One of the reasons comics need to work through any issues caused by a narrow conception of itself isn't that there's a bright future coming but that we need to simply and immediately recognize the reality that's all around us.

* finally, boners.
