Both of these things are good news. This also works out for CXC, where Jay will be in conversation with Rafael Rosado on September 25 in an affiliated event.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* AJ McGuire on Dry County. Mike McCann on Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter #3.

* best wishes to Kate Lacour and family.

* editorial cartoonist Greg Perry pulls himself from consideration as the replacement for Michael De Adder at Brunswick News. I think a lot of people would have departed that situation just because it sound like a pain in the ass and some promises weren't kept.

* count Gary Tyrrell among those that works their way through the daily CCI schedule and pulls out some of them for your consideration. Here's Thursday and Friday.

* longtime retailer and porto-blogger Mike Sterling weighs in on MAD's change in publishing status.

* SPX Tumblr continues to add names to this anniversary year at SPX's stupendous-sounding list.

* here's Charles Schulz in 1970 on what makes a good citizen. Sounds like a reasonable answer to me. This was passed along to several sites over this last holiday weekend.

* finally: Scott Edelman talks to Gerry Conway. I've been enjoying these Scott Edelman interviews of his peers.

This was a good show that threw a spotlight on a single guest -- sometimes a pair -- that ran in the early 2010s on the CCAD campus in Columbus. This one featured exhibits by Gary Panter and Jeff Smith.
