The folks at Comic Monsters are having drawings for horror comic stuff each Saturday in April to those who register (free) at their Website.
And the much-smarter-than-I Neil Cohn has a new comic-related theory paper up on his Website: "Initial Refiner Projection: Movement and Binding in Visual Language". From the abstract:
"Refiners" are a type of modifier in visual language that hones the information found in another panel. While these "zooms" are fairly straightforward when found next to their modifying panels, interesting phenomena arise when separated from them. This paper looks at the constraints placed on these conditions to show that similar processes occur in visual language as in the sequential structure of other forms of language.
