Book releases:

CRUSH ALL HU-MANS by R. Stevens is 64 pages of Red Robot’s best appearances from nine years of Deisel Sweeties. Totally edited down to their essence and rebuilt for this collection, this is a perfect jump-on point for non-fans who simply like evil robots. And who doesn’t? Check out the advance reviews from Notcot and Boingboing if you don’t beleive me. Available now at the DS site.

NEVER LEARN ANYTHING FROM HISTORY by Kate Beaton is a 68-page collection of Beaton’s best comics from the past year or so. Available now through Topatoco.

Just noticed that in our downtime, our first real out-of-spec advertiser has shown up in the PW buttons. If you like cam-girls, best check ’em out before I have a chance to kill that ad.

Also, regarding the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, the entirety of TX-Comics will be there, including Ramon Perez (Kukuburi), Cameron Stewart (Sin Titulo), Andy Belanger (Raising Hell), Scott Hepburn (The Port), Michael Cho (Papercut) Claudia Davila (Luz), Arthur Dela Cruz (Kissing Chaos), Brian McLachlan (Princess Planet), and myself (Abominable Charles Christopher).

Just so you know. ;)
