On the narrow Augesd dam where for so many years the old miller had been accustomed to sit in his tasseled cap peacefully angling, while his grandson, with shirt sleeves rolled up, handled the floundering silvery fish in the watering can, on that dam over which for so many years Moravians in shaggy caps and blue jackets had peacefully driven their two-horse carts loaded with wheat and had returned dusty with flour whitening their carts – on that narrow dam amid the wagons and the cannon, under the horses’ hoofs and between the wagon wheels, men disfigured by fear of death now crowded together, crushing one another, dying, stepping over the dying and killing on another, only to move on a few steps and be killed themselves in the same way. (Leo Tolstoy, from War and Peace)

The Orange Won’t Peel | Color-coded knapsack

ohyeah!

Just as there’s something romantic of the lone cartoonist hacking away, chasing a high, there’s something fruitful of the collaborative writer/artist pair achieving unison.

Committed: New Comics for Everyone! Batwoman, Daredevil, & Moon Knight

Daredevil, Batwoman, and Moon Knight are the top new comic books that I’ve been recommending to new readers lately. People who haven’t read comic books in years are looking to get back into reading them, and while they want something they can jump into without any continuity problems, they aren’t exactly looking for a paint-by-numbers either.

What I bought – 6 July 2011

Revolution is the universal rule of evolution. Revolution is a universal principle of the world. Revolution is the essence of the struggle for survival or destruction in a time of transition. Revolution submits to heaven and responds to men’s needs. Revolution rejects what is corrupt and keeps the good. Revolution is the advance from barbarism to civilization. Revolution turns slaves into masters. (Zou Rong, from The Revolutionary Army)

What I bought – May and June 2011

Hey, look at that! I’m back in Arizona and I picked up almost two months’ worth of comics! Yeah, I’m not going to review them properly here – that would take waaaaaaaay too long. This is more of a “What I bought and the random thoughts I have about the issues and, why not, what I did in Pennsylvania for seven-and-a-half weeks.” Can you handle that??????

What I bought – 8 July 2010

Actually, his statement in its entirety was, “The rich are the most discriminated-against minority in the world. Openly or covertly, everybody hates the rich because, openly or covertly, everybody envies the rich. Me, I love the rich. Somebody has to love them. Sure, a lot o’ rich people are assholes, but believe me, a lot o’ poor people are assholes, too, and an asshole with money can at least pay for his own drinks.” (Tom Robbins, from Jitterbug Perfume)

Damn, I love the backgrounds on these Quitely covers! Batman puts some Bactine on this and moves on, because he's tougher than you are! It's a double-shot of awesome straight to your cerebral cortex! I don't know how those dolphins got on top of that building, but how sad!That guy in the foreground creeps me out! I love the ghost fingers right in the center of the drawing! You know, if more cops looked like this and flew around like this, I'd be a criminal just to check it out! How can anyone not love Tom Scioli? I'd risk the arrows if fine ladies like that were paying me so much attention! I wonder what this issue is about? She will tic-tac-toe your ass to death! Yay!  More nudity! That's kind of a lousy 'drawing' but a pretty effective image It just keeps getting weirder! Featuring ... SCIENCE!!!! I'm so geeked about this title! Is it the end?  We shall see ... Raise a glass to Christopher Mitten! This actually represents something that happens within the pages! Who doesn't love retellings of old fairy tales?
