Some things to read 10/3/11

When Warren Ellis thinks about comics, I generally pay attention. If you're interested in the medium, too, so should you. This time he's thinking about rhetorical comics.

Did you know that Google publish a quarterly ezine? Well, they do, and it's packed full of interesting looking articles.

ICv2 has an interesting piece about the possible effects of DC's exclusivity deal Amazon. Long story short: Sorry, comics retailers!

One of my favorite cartoonists, Kate Beaton, is getting a lot of attention because of her new book, Hark! A Vagrant (which is also the name of her website). This makes me happy.

I love Lawrence Block's writing. Matt Scudder, the creation of Mr. Block is probably my favorite recurring character in fiction. Mr. Block has been toying with self-publishing a short story here and there for the Nook and Kindle for a year or so. Now he's decided to go big: He's self-publishing a collection of Matt Scudder stories. He's doing it in both electronic and meat-world formats. Good luck to him, and for anyone who's never read the Scudder series, this would be a great place to start. And for just $2.99, too.
