12:32pm: The NY Times picks ACT-I-VATE PRIMER for 2009 holiday gift guide
'Act-I-Vate Primer'

The "Act-I-Vate Primer" is not for everyone, but it opens a window to the world of free, online comics. Named after the Web collective that created the collection's 16 stories (some of which contain strong language and sexual situations), the anthology is a mixed bag. Dean Haspiel's "Bring Me the Heart of Billy Dogma," a love story between the title character and Jane Legit, is one of the best. It continues the bombastic tone, sexual escapades and striking color palette of the continuing Web series. Other highlights include "The Boy Who Came to Stay," "Veils" and "Memoirs of the 'Kid Immortal.'" (IDW, $24.99)
