Link me baby
A quick look at some stuff that's been patrolling the net:
* First off, there's been a rather odd brouhaha between the Penny Arcade folks and Jack "video games are pure evil" Thompson that's kicked up so much dust even Tom at the Comics Reporter has noticed. Buttonmashing.com has a very nice sum-up, so I won't go into details here. Just click on the link and be aghast.
* In comics news, Publisher's Weekly has a nice interview with Tokyopop editorial director Jeremy Ross, where he mentions, albeit briefly, the whole recent scandal involving OEL contracts.
* There's also another PW article on Fantagraphics' line-up for next year. Of special note is a Castle Waiting collection, a collection of rock and roll-related strips by Joe Sacco, and a "History of Fantagraphics" written by comics critic extraordinaire (and former TCJ editor) Tom Spurgeon. Huzzah!
