07/21/2013: What’s New on ComicSpectrum


A bit of a content slow-down this past week due to my attendance of San Diego Comic Con.  I tried to keep info flowing via the ComicSpectrum Twitter feed @ComicSpectrum, but didn’t get as much of a chance to post new content as I’d have liked.  We had the CBLDF party on Thursday night, the Eisner Awards on Friday (we were at a VIP table thanks to the good folks at MyComicShop.com),  Saturday we had our annual “Drink & Swap” where we trade comics & TPBs.

That said, we did add August solicit links & new blogs for Original Art & Sketches this week.  I put up an initial post and we should soon start featuring stuff acquired at the con on both these photo-streams.  I picked up 13 interviews using our new “20 Words” format at SDCC and I’ll be posting those up over then next month or 2.
