'RIFFS PICKS: the Five Cool Links we care about this minute

By Michael Cavna


THE MORNING LINE:
From sweet potatoes to sweet, sweet superheroic victory, here are Comic Riffs's Fave-Five links that pique our interest this minute...


5. SOMETHING FOWL THIS WAY COMES: New Yorker cartoonist Zachary Kanin offers hard-won travel tips for the Thanksgiving holiday. (Though how Kanin chews his turkey with tongue so firmly planted in cheek, I have no idea.)

4. NORTHWEST EXPOSURE: PORTLAND pauses to thump its chest about being a hotbed of comics, courtesy of OregonBusiness.com. (Not that we're disagreeing, mind you. Dark Horse and Top Shelf alone can help you quickly build your case.)


3. REMEMBERING ANOTHER 'CON STALWART: he ever-knowledgeable Mark Evanier takes a moment to memorialize KEN KRUEGER, who by some accounts was every bit as responsible as the also recently deceased Shel Dorf (who seemed to get more ink) for the launch and early success of Comic-Con International / San Diego Comic-Con / Whatever You Want to Call It This Year.


2. "NO, GALACTUS, IT IS YOU WHO WILL PERISH": Just how crazy, really, can concepts get with the CORE MARVEL UNIVERSE? Chris Sims breaks it down at ComicsAlliance.

...Annnnd our fave link this minute:

1. FROM BECHDEL TO BENDIS: When calendar-fixated folks can smell both a year's end and a decade's end, then lists being to seriously sprout like Tribbles on fertility drugs. (And yes, we're well-aware that officially, many people contend the decade doesn't end till the end of 2010.) Take it up with the good people at the great A.V. Club, who declare THE BEST COMICS OF THE '00s. (They dare ya to challenge their picks. They dare ya.)

I thought they meant cartoons, not comic books. so, no vote as I have never heard of any of them.

MC, reallly glad you included the words "...care about this minute."

BTW, happy turkey-day from beautiful, warm, sunny (sort of) SC.

#2 links to an article that has to be read to be believed. Wonderful stuff to peruse, while digesting your turkey! (Be sure to read the 3 pages of comments, too.)
