Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

I'm sure there are stories I'm missing, but Kate Beaton shutting down one of the five great comics of the 21st Century, the singular and funny Hark! A Vagrant, with a gracious thank you and a promise to keep the archives up, should get this column's sole attention and every other award and sign of respect and gratitude this industry and all its attendant communities can generate. I'm sorry I hadn't noticed until a couple of days ago.

I hope Kate Beaton does whatever she wants for as long as she wants to do it, and I am grateful I was an active comics reader while she was making this work. What a thrill. Thank you, Kate.

Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Kim Jooha talks to Patrick Kyle.

* Greg Hunter on Latinx Superheroes In Mainstream Comics. Daniel Semanas on Roly Poly. Mel Schuit on Garlandia.

* Abraham Riesman explores the Bullseye character, prominently featured in the third season of the Daredevil TV show.

* my favorite writer about comics Bob Levin returns to a fruitful subject from his writing past: Dan O'Neill.

* finally: how cartoonists are processing the Jamal Khashoggi story. I'm a sucker for these kinds of stories.
