Rifling through the last few days of my RSS reader...

1. Good to see The Strangeness Of... back in action.
2. Is EVERYBODY LOVES TANK GIRL already out in France? My head hurts.
3. In other Tanky news, howzabout Rufus Dayglo's poster for the Glasgow Comic Con?
4. Fixing the lack of What Not reblogging here for a while, that's a beaut by Devilpig.
5. Robert Ball does a poster for EPIC KILL.

Unclog your blog II

This has been lurking in a tab on my browser for ages - the first glimpse of Mignola's Hellboy In Hell. Next up - Duncan Wilson's Relic Of A Beer-Swilling Bass God, a title that just meant I had to feature it here. Then, Mike Maiheck's anniversary card for his presumably very tolerant missus.

Oh, and WJC is flogging a lovely looking collection of some of my favourite recent works of his as a little portfolio of postcards. Tasty.

New Jamie Hewlett Tank Girl images.

Was just reminded of these by Craig Conlan on Twitter: new Tank Girl images by Jamie Hewlett, as seen in Alan Martin's Facebook timeline recently.  THE HOLE OF TANK GIRL is a hardback omnibus edition from Titan collecting everything the original Tanky team did together, the poster mag seems to be a collection of odds and sods ("featuring a fold out poster of Hewl's TG, an exclusive short story, unseen artwork, badge, cut-out, sticker and exclusive trading card") that'll be exclusively available via Al's Ebay shop.

Saturday catch-up.

1. A great panel by Shaky Kane, from the Bill Burroughs-inspired cut-up issue of THE BULLETPROOF COFFIN: DISINTERRED, as discussed further over at Steve Cook's blog.

This panel is based on a great portrait Steve did of Shaky in 2009 for this exhibition.

2. I managed to stay offline for most of May The Fourth, the fan-appointed "Star Wars Day", but I just saw this delightful confection over at Jonathan Edwards' blog, Happy Hour.

3.  Similarly, being offline I also missed the news of Adam Yauch's death. I'll offer this again, as much in apology as in tribute: The Klams cover Sabotage.

4. I like GAME OF THRONES, I like beer, I like the inevitable crossover of the two.

5. Tom Whalen's gorgeous YELLOW SUBMARINE prints. If I could, I would. Instead, I'll probably pay the iron price for these.

UK comics linkage.

At least two of my favourite UK comics people keep posting Avengers-related art they're doing for the Alter Ego exhibition at the Red Bull Studio in London Village, but this is my favourite so far, Robert Ball's Vision.

And if, like me, you have a filthy and puerile sense of humour, Craig Conlan's FISHY AND CHEESY may well be your book of the year.
