* I'm grateful to Sean Kleefeld to cover the Patreon
. To be clear, if I make a certain amount of money, I really do hire columnists to cover areas in which I'm weak. That would have to be a level at which I wouldn't mind failing to take home the 1000 an issue a full bank of columnists would cost, even if I were being super-cheap about it.
* Todd Klein on Storms At Sea
. Rob Clough on Miseryland
. Todd Klein on Superman #41
* this profile of besieged Malaysian cartoonist Zunar
is pretty open about the fact that the hysterical reaction to his work by government officials has made him a worldwide arts celebrity. Thanks, jerks.

. The thing is, we live in a culture that if these folks were caught the cry would go up against serious punishment because it would be seen as an overreaction.

* animated Cerebus
. Do they even offer portfolios anymore?
* finally, David Robertson takes up for Al Williamson
, an artist who frequently worked in commercial contexts where he was under-appreciated.
