These have been sitting in my "I should link to these" folder for a long time. They're all still fun.

Snoopy writes a Batman story. Really.

Scott Eric Kaufman on teaching Warren Ellis's Planetary.

Comics (and cartoon) characters' names in Chinese.

• And, a cri de coeur from two and a half years ago: Tom Spurgeon on why there's hope for comics in the recession (from December, 2008). Since, thanks to the action of our politicians, we're going to be dealing with economic misery for the foreseeable future, still timely.
