Never Too Long To Wait For The Right Book

It’s been a long time coming, and it’s a draining thing, making yourself available as the sounding board for those who have suffered. The physical book is now out there thanks to the determination of C Spike Trotman who decided that some Kickstarts just can’t fail to fulfill. Two years late is a long time, but it’s out there now, and we are all the better for it.

  • Speaking of Spike, The AV Club’s Caitlin Rosberg has a lengthy discussion today about self-publishing sprung from webcomics, the changes it’s making in capital-C Comics. Readers of this page will find much familiar in Rosberg’s arguments, all of which are well thought-out and draw examples from a series of webcomics types like Spike, and Sfé Monster and Taneka Stotts, who collaborate on Beyond Press. Every kind of story, every kind of character can be found in comics because people like this are out there making stories that show their experiences.
  • Today’s mail brought a package from the good folks at :01 Books, who sent me a copy of the print collection of The Creepy Case Files Of Margo Maloo by Drew Weing, fresh off its win at the Reubens for Online Comics — Long Form. It’ll release to stores in September, and we’ll be running a review at that time.
