- Code Monkey Save World indeed, Pak/Coulton/Westphal (buy here)
- ComiXology's big Submit bundle was a big success
- Doc Unknown is a truly grassroots, indie-indie success story
- Marvel was busy at SXSW. Really busy. Like, API busy.
- Chew is a comic set in a world where bird meat is illegal following a huge avian flu outbreak, and follows an FDA agent who can pick up clues off food. It's irreverent, weird, and brilliant. Bonus: the art from Rob Guillory is delicious.
