Brooklyn Comics & More Inc., the owner of two now-closed stores in New York City, has filed for bankruptcy.

I am kind of fascinated by this comics strip by John Scully that has the exact same punch line strip every day. And it runs on GoComics.

More costumes for the Batman.

Sean Kleefeld found some boxes of comics on the street a few weeks ago…and it turns out someone is just putting their comics out on the curb, and Kleefeld having the compulsion to not leave comics on the street that so many of us have, he picked them up and went through them, and does some ratiocination on the results

Yet another convention that was held this weekend was the first New South Festival in Austin. Robert Boyd has some photos and thoughts. It looks like a good show, but it was held outdoors and Austin in June can be a bit sticky I think. A lot of sunhats in evidence.
