* Johanna Draper Carlson discusses the latest of what will soon likely be a dozen such promotional video shows for comics companies.

* not comics: I'm confused as to why social media wouldn't be a requirement for every employee on a staff with a public media mission. It'd be like saying you aren't going to use the phone.

* Oni has named Tim Wiesch its new Vice President Of Business Development. He was most recently employed by Dark Horse doing foreign licensing. His new gig will involve licensing and all related brand-development measures. The position was previously held by George Rohac, who left Oni a little over a year ago.

* Maggie Thompson provides a 101 Guide to Comics Proselytizing. This was interesting for me to read because I've never been oriented that way.

* Steve Morris talks to Sarah Burgess. Jen Vaughn profiles Keeli McCarthy.

* there isn't a better writer about comics right now than Ryan Holmberg, and I hope you're reading everything that comes out of his fingertips.

* finally, I'm not sure how this page ended up in my bookmarks -- I assume I got it from somewhere but forgot both where and why I picked it up -- but there are some fun illustrations here.
