* Rob Clough picks a best of 2011, comic books edition. I didn't even know a Hate Annual came out in 2011.

* more from Frank Santoro on his tour up the West Coast.

* not comics: staring at fictional fantasy maps was a big part of the almost-like-comics portion of my youth. That Tolkien map in particular -- you know the one.

* Scott Edelman pulls out an obscurity from his files of Marvel original documentation ephemera.

* does anyone out there have an update on Rick Trembles' situation? I hope someone was able to employ him.
