The redoubtable H at The Comic Treadmill
turns his keen and not-yet-jaundiced eye upon the mighty First Moon:
"Itís an interesting piece of story-telling by McNamara, whose work Iíve admired in Continuity and, although the result isnít quite a masterpiece, it is an enjoyably absorbing, distinct tale with the requisite AiT/Planet Lar catchy premise... A final touch worth praising is the four pages of text with background on the Roanoke Colony with an additional page of recommended reading on the subject. As a reader, Iím always happy to see an author point me in the direction of fleshing out the subject matter of a fiction story based on non-fiction."
+++++Dave Roman and Raina Telgemeier, as well as John Green and Marion Vitus
have formed a Loose Association of Like-Minded Individualsô called "The Comic Bakery," to put all of their diverse projects under a cohesive banner. Couldn't happen to a buncha nicer folks. Checck out a podcast interview with them on The Indie Spinner Rack.
...and maestro Mike Brennan
is the very best sort of comics creator we publish,
who never stops talking about his work with us and never stops thinking up new ways to help us sell his books. Mike's latest is new updates to his site: "The mighty Electric Girl
marches on!" says Mike. "I've set up a Cafe Press shop to sell the Blammo t-shirts that I used to bring to trade shows back when I was an itty-bitty self-publisher! The great thing about CP is I can offer the designs on a variety of styles of shirts (for boys and girls) without printing them up in advance. I rebuilt the eg.com store page
to act as a portal to my Cafe Press shop as well as help desperate EG fans find a place to by the trades."
