Just got a bunch of books in from Microcosm Publishing that I will be taking a look at this week (thanks Jessie Duke!). If you've got a book or other webcomic-related object you're interested in having reviewed send it to "Robert Tanner, P.O. Box 3362, Arlington VA 22203" -- I can't promise every book will get a full-blown review from someone (most do though) but they all get a mention on the site.
MILESTONES: It's Odori Park's first year anniversary on the web his upcoming Saturday. Creator Chris Watkins is soliciting guest strips to help celebrate - send them to him by March 15th.
TOOLS: At Webcomic Planet, Bryon Wilkins reviews the Comic Life software -- it's primarily marketed as a photo to but Wilkins talks about its comic-making usefulness.
JUSTIFY MY HYPE: It's Shark Week at Hockey Zombie! It's also Hockey Zombie's fifth year anniversary.
NOT WEBCOMICS: Ted Rall time - first, Scott Kurtz throws him into a recent comic -- unless you've followed the online Kurtz-Rall verbal fragfests I'm not sure that's a 4th panel-worthy cameo there. Second, I saw this story on TechDirt where they reported that Rall recently argued "that Italy got it right in finding three Google execs criminally liable for a video some kids posted to Google Video." Rall is now officially in the running with Wiley for the all-time webcomic-luddite title.
