Five Link A Go Go

* this PR-driven piece on DC's new Minx imprint seems badly researched in spots and comes close to propagating an asinine conceit that DC is the first company to target a female teen readership, but the marketing partnerships involved are worth noting and some of the talent talked about has done quality, interesting work in the past. The line has been a long time coming for a comics effort: people were talking about working on books involved on the floor of San Diego Con, 2005.

* start at retailer Chris Butcher's article and click through on his links for initial industry commentary on the Minx line, including that of one of the noteworthy talents involved, Andi Watson, and a list of the books.

* a review of Gabrielle Bell's Lucky in the Boston Globe

* the Act-i-vate crew interviewed on Indie Spinner Rack podcast

* a review by Holland Cotter in the NYT of the African comics exhibit at the Studio Museum in Harlem

First Thought of the Day
Yesterday at the grocery store as I got into my car the person next to me finished loading their trunk and then casually pushed their shopping cart out of the way and out of mind... and right behind my car, as if I didn't exist. It's Christmas season!
