Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough on various minis from Andrew Alexander.

* last week in listicles brought us a list of 13 places in Portland for comics. I get exhausted with that much clicking, but I do know that beautiful city has a bunch of great places to interact with comics.

* Caroline Winter profiles Scott Adams.

* I'm always supportive of people talking about comics money with real numbers in play.

* finally, the one piece of original art I purchased this weekend at the Columbus small-press show SPACE was from Alec Valerius, if you need another young cartoonist to follow on Twitter.
