Dark Horse‘s MySpace offering for September hit yesterday, with three of the four entries from the world of webcomics. You got Mitch Clem‘s Nothing Nice to Say: Getting Hip (two pages), Chris Onstad‘s Achewood: One Dollar Genius (eight pages), and the very fancy Liz Greenfield‘s Steak and Kidney Punch (eight pages). And the other offering is an eight-page Larry Marder Beanworld tale, so it’s all good.
- For further proof that Onstad is taking over the world, there’s another piece in the Sandwich Duel due today, and this little beauty on the Achewood front page (no permalink):
Achewood NPR interview airs next week.
My guess? Weekend Edition Saturday or Sunday, The Bryant Park Project, or Day to Day, but nothing known for sure at this point. Good news: NPR programs are generally available for streaming within a hour of their initial broadcast.
- Interview day:
- Brad Guigar interview. For added fun, imagine the guffaws in your head (note to self: 1. Mix down 10-second repeating clip of Guigar laughing, 2. Embed everywhere humanly possible, 3. Profit!)
- Also got one with Lil’ Johnny A (note to self: buy things from Allison before prices go up due to dollar not being quite so sucky)
- Joy! Rick Marshall gets back to chattin’, this time with Bernie Hou of the hiatused Alien Loves Predator and the non-hiatused If You See Something
- Ephemera note of the day: a micro-piece on webcomics bid’ness from Entrepreneur magazine; very little there you don’t know if you follow our happy little medium, but quite a bit new if you don’t. Secret fear: flood of I’m gonna make it big in WEBCOMICS ideas bubbling up in the brains of B-school
douchebagstypes looking for easy pickings and providing crappy comics. I trust that if they show up, you will know how to greet them.
