The Comic Queen

Zip ribbons and word balloons, Wednesday bliss and Previews dreams. If these phrases mean anything to you, then you're in the right place. But if they don't -- hey stick around anyway. You might just like what you see.

Comics Links Galore

Jeffrey Brown's work is featured in a new video by Death Cab for Cutie. The video is available free here through March 5. Brown wrote the semi-autobiographical story for the song "Your Heart Is An Empty Room," and produced the images that were then animated by Eliza
Chincarini. Great music and a great video. Excellent combination.

Cindy Center posts a Podcast interview with King Cat Comics creator John Porcellino. In the podcast, Porcellino talks about the history of the comics, his influences, his love of self-publishing, and upcoming projects.

And lo, the heavens did weep. Aaron McGruder will be on a six-month sabbatical from Boondocks starting in late March.

Anthony, a comics creator in Vancouver, BC, recently posted here and mentioned his blog, I Miss Paper. This is some great work. Do. Not. Miss. Somebody publish this quick. I'm serious.

Speakeasy's gone belly up. And even before I had a chance to review the Flying Friar. Too bad.

Renae Geerlings is named the new editor in chief of comics publisher Top Cow.

U.S. graphic novel sales reach $245 million.

New blog in the comic domain called Random Generation. Melvin P. Mouse is the caretaker, and he's located not far from my old stomping grounds, so I'll vouch for him.

Aquaman’s been sighted. Beware, this is not for the faint of heart.

    What, you mean when a publisher closes down, all their comics past and present don't just disappear in a puff of smoke?!? Dude. ;-)

    Nice to meet you, ComicQueen-san.
    I'm Risa Kanaya from Japan.
    I send a comment to tell you a Japanese wonderful Budo "Aikido". Because I think the spirits of Aikido (don't fight, don't hurt, don't attack, think a great deal of contact and consideration) will make peaceful world, so I want you to know it.

    I make a guided blog. so please check it, then you can watch a lot of great Aikido technics(movies) and study the spirits. Let's study together to make a peaceful world.

    Best regards.

    Risa Kanaya.
