Love and Rockets Links: April

ebay: take a look at this vintage concert poster by Gilbert. Whatever happened to Dr. Know?
There was a blow up on twitter earlier in the month over Jaime's work in LRNS 4 not being nominated for an Eisner award. We remain neutral on the subject of idiots that can't identify great work among the mediocrity that is the goal of most comics these days. Hower, read some folks who had a real opinion on the subject: Tom Spurgeon; Chris Mautner; Rob Martin; Evan Dorkin; Marc Sobel (nice background art, Marc); Dustin Harbin; Evan Dorkin 2; Woodrow Phoenix; Evan Dorkin 3; Ed Brubaker; Ed Brubaker 2; Will Pfeifer; Marc Sobel 2; and, class guy that he is I found no tweets pertaining to this subject in Jaime twitter activity of the time.
Corey Creekmur; Robert Stanley Martin; Jason Michelitch; Eric Berlatsky 1; Eric Berlatsky 2; Jenny Gonzalez-Blitz; Richard Cook; James Romberger; Derik Badman; Marc Sobel; Noah Berlatsky; and, Deb Aoki. Hopefully these links still work, although you aren't really missing much if they don't.
