Digistate - Food and Eating Anthology

Digestate - Bird Cage Bottom Books
Digestate is a 288 page black and white anthology all about the dilemmas of eating (and what to eat). The politics of vegans, vegetarians, and carnivorous thinking make it into the book, though the tone isn't really political but confessional: what I eat and why I eat it.
55 creators populate this book, and the tone varies wildly, as do the styles and the thinking. Although moral superiority does peep out from some of the pages, it isn't the point of the collection, and alternative viewpoints are supplied in abundance, plus plenty of straight-forward tales about people and funny animals and the odd things they eat.
Editor J. T. Yost attacks a mundane subject (eating) with 55 varied expressions, a unique collection and well done on all counts.
Gary Fields "Doggone Delectable Delights" - from Digestate. See page enlarged.
Kill Damian Wayne
New York Post 'exclusive' on latest victim of DC Comics' perennial hero-killing ways:
"Robin the Boy Wonder, Batman’s aide-de-camp, will be killed battling a brutal enemy in a comic book published Wednesday.
The shocking demise of the Dark Knight’s sidekick will first appear in issue No. 8 of the offshoot title “Batman Incorporated,” but the aftermath of his death will ripple throughout the DC Comics universe, the publisher confirmed exclusively to The Post.
Damian Wayne — the son of Bruce Wayne and the latest hero to assume the mantle of Robin — has a heart-to-heart with fellow superhero Nightwing before his final, and ultimately fatal, battle in the pages of “Batman Incorporated” No. 8, out Wednesday.
“He saves the world. He does his job as Robin,” writer Grant Morrison said. “He dies an absolute hero.”
