Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Frank Santoro is firing up another round of his correspondence course. Deadline for the limited number of spaces is May 30. Those classes are a force for good in the world. The comics world, anyway.

image* Jason Thompson is a super-reliable reviewer to whom I don't link with nearly the frequency I should. Recent pieces are reviews of Dragon Head, Hunter X Hunter, Black Jack and Pineapple Army; profiles of Shigeru Mizuki and Masahiko Nakahira.

* paulgoatallen on a pair of brand-new graphic novels.

* not comics: as is the case with regular porn on the Internet (or so I've heard), every time there's a new shelf-porn gallery it turns out it's only about 20 percent new pictures. Still: worth it.

* I like how every so often someone will send me this post from Matt Madden completely out of the blue. We need a word for blog posts that stick around or recur.

* here's a slideshow of famous illustrators and cartoonists celebrating Maurice Sendak. I don't know if I linked to this Guardian slide show of Sendak's life or not.

* this photo of Hunt Emerson made me laugh.

* Naomi Fry profiles Dan Clowes. Lydia Conklin talks to Vanessa Davis. John Siuntres talks to a pair of DC Veeps and to Mike Oeming.

* finally, here's Hilary Barta talking about Roy Lichtenstein.
