Playing catch up: The last two weeks in Bay Area comics news and announcements

I’ve been missing from this blog for a couple of weeks finishing up a rather time intensive gig, but now I’m back and this is an effort to get caught up on all of the Bay Area comic news I may have missed. I’ve omitted a couple of things that I’ll be running as longer posts this week.
