Regular slugs of news for the UK Small Press Comics Nation (huh?)
March 27 2004

A couple of years back Top Shelf started putting extended comic strips on their site. The feature vanished during a site redesign but has now been reinstated with a new batch of comics. Artists include Josue Menjivar, Nate Beaty, Martin Cendreda, Andrew Brandou, Farel Dalrymple, Rob Goodin, Gregory Benton and Scott Malin.

Over the last few months Rick Bradford's Poopsheet blog has become somewhat essential as he pulls in links and news from the indy, alt and art comics world. It's like reading Journalista (currently on hiatus) without having to skim through all the 'other comics' stuff. Go Rick.

When Eddie Campbell announced he was shutting up his self publishing operation (responsible for his Alec and Bacchus collections along with the massive From Hell) and doing a Batman book it was all rather confusing, especially as not much more information was forthcoming. In this interview on Comicon.com Pulse he talks about the Batman book along with a stint on Captain America, denies being 'creative' in his work ("I don't have time to feel creative. There's always a job to be done and no time to think about it. Creative is for art workshops. Professionals are too busy.") and teasingly refers to his next autobiographical book, The Fate of The Artist "which will be an investigation into the disappearance of myself. It's very complicated; in the scenes where I am required to appear, my part is played by an actor. It's the last word in postmodernism."
