The Hooded Utilitarian goes from providing half of TCJ.com's content to banishment

... apparently without so much as a fare-thee-well and zero technical assistance in effecting the divorce. Classy! But Noah Berlatsky does look on the good side, as well. TCJ.com/fail — Post Mortem | The Hooded Utilitarian
...being on the site was very flattering, and gave us (or at least me!) a sense of being part of a valuable institution and history. I’m not actually a long time reader of the Journal — I doubt I ever seriously read an issue until they started publishing me — and Gary, Kim, etc. were never big influences or models for me as I know they have been for many. But I still respect what the Journal has been, and have enjoyed many of the things I’ve read in it, and I was honored to have been a part of it. So that’s the good. On to the bad! That bad being that tcj.com has been a clusterfuck from the get go. Except “clusterfuck” is kind of too active. More a somnofutz, maybe. ... It wasn’t infrequent for 4 of the 10 posts visible on the front page to be HU links. It was rare that there were fewer than 3; maybe we got down to 2 once or twice in those last weeks when the Panelists started posting regularly. ... I figured that the content of HU would be clearly separated from the content of tcj.com. That, as it turns out, was not the case. Instead, HU content went into the same long blog roll as everything else, visually indistinguishable. As a result, in a lot of ways, HU and tcj.com merged. Which meant I was effectively editing big chunks of tcj.com. Sean Collins expressed his heartfelt horror at this state of affairs.
That vacuum allowed the emergence as The Comics Journal’s loudest and most prominent critical voice an approach to comics and comics criticism that couldn’t be more diametrically opposed to the traditional ideals and values of both the Journal and its parent company Fantagraphics if it were made to wear a snazzy yellow union suit and call itself Professor Zoom, The Reverse Comics Journal.
The thing is…I agree with this. ...

Penny Arcade on Gawker's awful, awful new layout

Look, we all know that the Gawker family of blogs are the worst, right? For every one decent post they have three dozen that are just cheap linkbait or there to provoke trolls, or are just reiterated PR bullshit. It's like reading commercials written by jerks. The new format is also unreadable on my phone. Penny Arcade! - Gawk-Blocking

Steampunk Sarah Palin, with gigantic breasts

steampunkpunkpalin.jpg 'Steampunk Palin' Comic More Insane Than You Imagined - ComicsAlliance | Comics culture, news, humor, commentary, and reviews
This book contains fifteen pages of story, followed by eight pages of pin-ups of Sarah Palin. If you actually felt a little sick start to crawl up the back of your throat when your first saw that, I can guarantee you weren't the only one. And yes, they're not kidding around with the pin-ups. But I will spare you that horror. For the moment. ... And while I'm willing to believe this book when it tells me it's trying to depict Sarah Palin, my response to the idea that it can be characterized as steampunk is more along the lines of "Hold on there." Although to be fair to the book, Steampunk Palin defies classification into any literary genre, unless there's a genre I'm unaware of simply called "WTF?!?"
