    Q&A With Bill Amend, Creator Of FoxTrot (And Certified Geek)

    As we noted yesterday, cartoonist Bill Amend has released three sets of his popular Foxtrot comic strips as $1.99 downloads. This move, prompted by the creation of Apple’s iBooks Author software and, more important, the rise of the self-publisher, is probably one of the first times I’ve seen a “traditional” comic strip enter the e-book realm in this way. I wanted to… Read More

  • Nvidia's Processor Roadmap Is A Gift To Geeks

    Kal-El, the quad-core megachip that Nvidia plans to come after Tegra 2, is exciting enough news, but what about the rest of the roadmap? Usually these charts reflect some internal logic and naming system, but stuff like Nehalem, Bulldozer, and Skulltrail are hard for the average geek to really relate to. Nvidia’s putting an end to that, in style. Read More

  • Amazon stops selling graphic novels completely after huge sale glitch

    Were you one of the lucky few to score a graphic novel at an insanely low price thanks to Amazon’s pricing glitch last week? (If so, I kinda hate you, because I didn’t.)

  • Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson gives a rare interview

    Most of you are probably at least familiar with Calvin and Hobbes, while many of us in our thirties (and up) remember reading the popular comic strip religiously. Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson has generally lived a pretty private life but he recently did an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, his hometown newspaper. Read More

  • Infighting said to mar production of Spider-Man 4 movie. Good.

    We all know that the Spider-Man movies peaked with the very first one, before it devolved into tweenish melodrama. So I have zero expectation that Spider Man 4 will even be worth the CAM download. Now this? We’ll have to go into integers to understand how little faith I have in it being worth a damn. Word is that director Sam Raimi is butting heads with Sony execs over who should be… Read More
