Via Kevin Maroney, a tribute to and retrospective of the 1970s underground comix anthology Arcade, by Alan Moore.

For those interested in translation matters, "Subdee, g" has a very interesting post on manga_talk comparing Viz's translation of the first volume of Death Note with a fan translation by a well-regarded scanlation group, showing that "even minor differences make a difference." Some of the comments are very informative as well, particularly those by kirimi.

A long and fascinating thread on Warren Ellis's "Engine" forum discusses porn comics, in particular whether drawing them is a good way for creators to make money. (Short answer: yes.) There's also an interesting digression into the phenomenon of yaoi, or manga about male homosexual relationships created by and for straight women.
