random update

Graphic designer Milton Glaser will be speaking at the Boston Public Library on April 27 at 6 p.m. This one could end up packed; I'm planning on heading over early.

Is it just me, or do more and more Boston-based comics bloggers keep popping up? We should start some kind of East Coast/West Coast rumble with the Ventura County guys.

After the artists' fundraiser shindig this weekend, my new standard for parties is "Will I have a chance to win a giant custom-made hula hoop like that one time?" It's gonna be hard to top that in the future.

Now on the sideblog: Dave's Long Box, new reviews of crusty old comics. Here's a man who speaks to my concerns:

Back in 1993 Superman comics once again flew into the national consciousness with the much-hyped "Death of Superman" storyline, which garnered media attention disproportionate to the comic's importance. Time/Warner went into full-on hype mode for the comics, which had different covers and merchandising tie-ins like official Death of Superman watches. I still have my black "memorial" T-shirt with the Superman logo. You know, Id like to see a Death of Jerry Orbach watch who wouldn't want that?

Milton Glasier? I'm going to that, too. It's not like I can say, "I have too much graphic design homework to see Milton Glasier".

Wanna meet up?
