News, Views and Oddities is a column I used to do over at the Forbidden Planet blog, but as I'm winding down my writing there to focus my efforts on here, it has made the trepidious journey across. It will be a fortnightly thing, appearing every other Friday, where I link to various comics, art, design and film news and tidbits.
These 1960's Kellogs adverts by Jack Davis are pretty super.
I think I'm correct in saying that Tucker Stone had been selling Nobrow's books at a few conventions, most recently SPX, which, coupled with the murmurings of the UK publishers' desire to open a US office, makes it less of a surprise that Stone's been appointed as their US Sales and Marketing director. The Beat reports that Stone's also wrapped up his Comics of the Weak column for The Comics Journal.
