Sunday Runaround – Brian Wood’s Free Massive

PoliticsWatch: Ostensibly a kids comic, the rather successful Spirou in France goes rather political with its upcoming issue, declaring that in the midst of political uproar, France needs saving. The last time it did this was when Belgium was without a government…

NovelWatch: Darkroom, is an autobiographical graphic novel by Lila Quintero Weaver about growing up in Alabama, in a time of racial upheaval. And it gets reviewed by those who live there.

As the years passed, the young Lila Quintero became more aware of the segregation and racial tension around her. In fact, being brown-skinned (her father’s skin was designated wheat color), with full lips, put her into an uncomfortable no-man’s land. She was not the same kind of Anglo white as her neighbors, but was not African-American either. And she had no culturally inherited racial prejudices.

LegacyWatch: Nicolas de Crecy and David B are feted as continuing the legacy of Moebius, by the Guardian.

So David B is pretty good; one of the most sophisticated cartoonists in the world, even. Certainly The Armed Garden blows the mind. But when it comes to producing work that is indescribably strange and yet beautiful, even he must bow before the “mad genius” of French comics, Nicolas de Crecy.

DigitalWatch: Marvel is being seen as a digital pioneer for their embedded digital code in print copies… and the New York Post sees it as a model for other magazine publishers.

ClothesWatch: Cartoonist Paul Rainey tweeted “I split my trousers in Gosh Comics this morning.”

This is Computo the Comic Link Conqueror speaking. I come for your women. But for now I merely collate comic-related bits and pieces online. One day I will rule. Until that day, read on.

They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
