Friday morning. Where is my oatmeal? 

There's been much discussion of Colleen Coover's controversial new comic Banana Sunday. I'm confident that the message I posted to Newsarama on page two of this thread should clear up any lingering difficulties.

In all the talk about new stores like RIOT opening up, I haven't seen any mention of the two fantastic new shops we have here in Portland: Bridge City Comics and Cosmic Monkey Comics. They're both sharp and savvy and energetic next-gen stores, and should definitely be included in any discussion of new retail trends.
