Item: Robert Haines profiles Dundas, Ontario comic shop The Dungeon for the Shuster Awards blog.
Item: First printer Quebecor World merged with World Color Press. Now World Color Press has been bought by the Wisconsin-based Quad Graphics.

Item: Interested in a report on the comics industry of France? I am.
Item: Many may not be aware, but Ho Che Anderson’s collected King bio has been technically out of print since 2006 or so. A massive new edition with tons of “behind-the-scenes” extras and a new Anderson strip will be out for February from Fantagraphics. Publisher’s Weekly has a profile.
Item: Bryan Lee O’Malley is looking for photo references of Scott Pilgrim’s house for the final volume.
