It’s the weekend, which just means it’s quiet and slow enough I can read this week’s comics and hopefully catch up on the back log that’s built up to read and write reviews.  Here’s the news that kept us entertained in the last 24 hours.

Around the Tubes:

ICv2 – Dynamite Lands ‘Voltron’ Comics License – Having just discussed Voltron with a friend the day before the timing is weird.  I can only conclude I was the reason this deal went through.  I accept thank you checks made out to “cash.”

Arts Beat – Graphic Books Best Sellers: Life on the Reservation – We could do a best sellers list for this blog, but I only know what I purchased.  And that’s only ever one copy of each book.  So there’d be a massive tie for first and the list would be worthless.   Here’s hoping the methodology behind this one is better.

The Gamers Hub – Bethesda and Dark Horse Announce RAGE Comic Books – Think if I metroed over to Bethesda, MD they’d chat with me about the comic?

The Beat – Jeff Smith’s RASL in development with Wigram – Another day, another comic book series getting the big screen treatment.  Which Jeff Smith property makes it to the big screen first, Bone or RASL?

Newsarama – TV Creator Makes His Comic Book Debut with INSURRECTION V3.6 – Blake Masters has written for some decent television series.  We’ll see how that translates to comics.

Hurriyet Daily News – ‘Bayan Yani’ puts a female face on Turkish humor magazines – Women are breaking into the Turkish comic book industry.

Around the Tubes Reviews:

Karissa’s Reading Review – The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch

Big Shiny Robot – Ultimate Spider-Man #155
