I’m going to link to a few things here, but the only one I really care about is this – Andrew Rilstone’s new pdf ‘zine, with which he’s broken his five-month blog silence. I’ve only read the first quarter, but I can already say it’s one of the best things (if not *the* best) I’ve read on comics this year – a series of discursive essays on Watchmen – film and book, childhood, Stan Lee , silver age Supergirl comics and 1940s Superman radio shows sponsored by Kellog’s Pep (but mostly Watchmen). I think Pillock will especially like this, but everyone should have a look.
ETA After reading the whole thing, I can safely say it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever read about Watchmen, and one of the best things Rilstone’s ever done.
In other news – Charlotte Gore isn’t a witch, she’s a nutter.
A good post on women in free software, asking among other things what can be learned from the experiences of Dreamwidth.
I don’t know why I haven’t linked it before, but I hope you’ve all been reading RIck Veitch’s Subtleman strip…
And Bruce Schneier has a good post on risk intuition.
Some actual content tomorrow – probably comics-based – as well as my return to Twitter (I hope). Been a very busy week at work…
