Dirty Danny Interview
Ben Durgin interviews Danny Hellman at opticalsloth.com

That's it. Nothing else going on in comics that I care about. Maybe tomorrow people will do stuff.
Since this whole comics activism argument is still going on, I might as well mention Sean Collins' take on the issue

Rick Bradford reviews King Cat #62 here
Since I just swore off the comic store again (I'll probably go back until Cerebus #300, but that's it and I mean it this time) I've decided to start ordering more mini-comics. I'll order two or three a week. Or maybe I should just say I'll review whatever people send me, then I'll get some free comics. If you want to send me something, e-mail me. Address is to your right.
is a neat interview with Johnny Ryan
. It turns out we have a lot in common:
"JR: I like to eat Teddy Grahams in my Garfield slippers while I'm watching Trading Spaces. That's pretty cool, right?"

I'm still looking for nerdy comic forums, here are some more good ones:
DC's Green Lantern board
, Comicboards' Comic Battle board
, Comicboards' 2099 board
, Comicboards' 'Dangerous Curves' board (this one's not for the weak of heart)
and, of course, The Poison Elves message board
. Thanks to everyone who's given out pointers so far. Keep it up!
