A couple of small interesting things for a frantic Friday morning:

* I don’t have an iPhone, but if I did, I’d definitely take the new ComiX0logy iPhone app for a whirl. The regular site has a very good new comics pull list system that I imagine would be extra helpful if I could pull it up on my phone when I’m at the comics shop because I always forget something. The app also gives you access to some digital comics and, if you buy it the first week, it’s a dollar off.

* In “The Dark Knight” news, the Joker has taken over the mosts recent issue of Mad Magazine. Check out a preview here. Meanwhile, the film is due to be rereleased to theaters on Jan. 23, which give me another chance to check it out in IMAX. And the AP moved a story yesterday about how the film’s Oscar chances have risen as the rollout of awards contenders nears its end.

* Speaking of awards, all you comics creators should be aware that submissions are now being taken for the Eisner Awards. Details here.
