art-penSpiraling out of control…

  • Webcomic Overlook reviewed Set To Sea and Tangents looked at Gulch while Pigs of the Industry reviews Quick. MPD57 reviewed Sketch Me, Deadly and iFanboy (via Comixup) shows us The Rack.
  • Comicsgirl reviews three mini comics – Next To You, PS Comics, Little Miss May & Her Kitty, Jub Jub and Down the Tubes reviews Khaki Shorts. Talkin Bout Comics reviews American Born Chinese and Fraggmented looks back into the distant past to Hawk & Dove #4. I seem to recall that they were originally squabbling brothers.

  1. Thanks for reminding us about a potentially missed review (and others may feel free to do so as well.) That review made it into Tuesday’s news update:

    A lot of reviews seem to pop up on Fridays and Saturdays and there are enough that it seemed prudent to break it in half by posting on Tuesday and Friday. I may go back to just having a huge post on Fridays if folks really prefer that. It may be that the weekend is prime time for comic fans to check up on the comic news.

    If anyone has input on this, I’m all ears.

    doh! And I see that I originally labeled the post with the wrong month! doh!
