* look at all the words on that comics page! And yet those move as cinematically as any approach that's taken hold of mainstream comics since the early '80s.

* Ruman Alaam on the works of William Steig. I hope I live another half-generation to see all the work like Steig's subsumed under the umbrella term "comics."

* Joe Decie reminds that ELCAF is a great reason to see the Urasawa exhibit at the British Museum.

* finally: there's a thought in this retailing column about Free Comic Book Day that I see recur several times a year, that even the best promotions and flourishes done on behalf of comic book shops have a hard time driving business to core elements of that retail experience.
