* ... and a near-endless supply of chicken companions.

* this Gerry Alanguilan essay about the passing of his mother is very touching, and starts off with a wonderful detail that I think will resonate with a lot of my writer and artists friends, the way he initially notes hearing the news.

* not comics: they're really just a PR organization there to boost the side other than the one they're taking; they have to be.

* I enjoyed how unsparing this profile of Epic Comics was in terms of its appraisal of what got published, although I wish they had qualfied its contribution to the reality of creator-owned comics to designate this a creator-owned imprint owned by a mainstream company, because certainly there had been creator-owned books for twenty years at that point, exactly as we now understand them. Marvel even did some.

* Kristi Turnquist talks to Brian Michael Bendis. Charlie Chang talks to Van Jensen and Rob Venditti. Patrick A. Reed talks to Chip Kidd and Wendy and Richard Pini.
