Blogging Heroes: Interviews with 30 of the World’s Top Bloggers By Michael A. Banks Page 35 Doesn’t it seem outmoded to charge for something that is free? I mean, you can read a bloggers blog and get a pretty good idea about why they do it, why bother reading an interview with them? Case in point: “Blogging about doing something for the first time is also much more interesting than writing about the daily grind.” No shit Ina Steiner.

The Perry Bible Fellowship: The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories By Nicholas Gurewitch Pages 9-11

Okay, so first off we have a guy dreaming of bacon, then blowing up a pig, then rabbits having sex to get out of a deep hole, someone living in hell for a puppy, a space man meeting a woman with a monster vagina, a clown getting his head cut off and a boy eating his teacher. That’s three pages of this graphic novel. Three pages. You figure out what its about. Appears to be ADD genius cartoon ala Paper Rad.
