A Local review for local people

Should you wish to read a review of the rather good Local by Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly, I've written one for the Readers of the Lost Art website. Check it out here.

It's moderately in-depth, but a little dry and lacking in humour (the review, not the book - the book is... well, just read the review, fool!).

There are a bunch of other reviews up there by the Readers of the Lost Art crew, including a few by me, although I must shamefully admit that this is my first for quite a while.

Most notable of my reviews is quite a large review/analysis/rant about Marvel Civil War specifically, and more generally, the problems of mainstream superheroics - it can be found here. If you disagree with it, you're wrong.

The comic-producing juggernaut that is the Paper Jam Comics Collective have a new blog thing whereby the most notable lunatic products of the 24-minute-comic scribbling that occurs at meetings will be posted regularly. It is cunningly known as Paper Jams. It features some fine material. And also some from Oscillating Brow.
