ComicMix Quick Picks – March 24, 2009
Man, we are so behind… busy busy busy here. Some items from the past few days to tide you over:
The "comics on handhelds" panel at SXSW, covered by ComicMix contributor Chris Ullrich for one of the thirteen other blogs he writes for.
And speaking of ComicMix contributors past and present, Rick Marshall made it up to the Webcomics Weekend and covered it heavily.
Quote of the day, from John Rogers:
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.
Take the above with a grain of salt– Rogers drinks. Heavily. And who can blame him?
Of course, if you want your own quote, you can try Quotes On Comics. This will probably save Dirk Deppey five minutes a day or so when he does ¡Journalista!
