The comics business, she's a slow ho. Publishing schedules, creator schedules, shipping schedules--there are glaciers that move faster. But at last, it looks like we're getting RIPPED and THE NETWORK (click on the titles for more details) out to you, the buying public, early in 2008. Both are coming from Arcana Studio, and are scheduled to be out in April and March, respectively. Also, both will be graphic novels--a shift from the planned individual issues. We shall keep you posted here, friends.

"Am I Outraging You! I'm Trying Really Hard To Be Outrageous! Are You Outraged Yet?"

From today's e-mail newsletter Bad Signal by Warren Ellis, who's clearly phoning today's entry in:

"I have no idea what happened the fateful night that Ms Lohan cracked the crust of stale, blood-flecked coke off her crotch and said to her soon-to-be-ex-assistant while snorting cough medicine up into her forebrain, 'shove your arm up there, girl. I want to come on your elbow.' Because the very rich are not like you and me..."

Come on, Warren, enough with the paint-by-numbers celeb/drug/sex nonsense. You've worn a groove on that riff deep enough to drive a truck into. Warren's a good writer, but from him, this kind of stuff's about as unexpected as Bill Simmons referencing '80s tv shows or Faulkner expounding on faded glories.

Or, you know, me shorthanding a post by quoting someone else. Whatever.
