  1. The “Wallace the Brave” collections are charming, but seriously flawed by the publisher’s insistence on producing them in “portrait” format. Ssince Will Henry (thankfully) does not have to stick to the (tiresome) three- or four-panel standards that syndicates prefer and/or dictate, the strips have to be cut and reformatted to fit on the book’s pages. Printing the collections in landscape format with two daily strips on each page would have been a much better idea.

  2. That Watership Down graphic novel looks beautiful. My favorite novel ever, so I’ll be picking that up eventually.
